Hello everyone. Brighter here - all the better for seeing patchiness in pesky chalky paint so yet another coat of terracotta then lunch followed by a raid on the supermarket.
Buys- I hope you get your shelters repaired OK. Better go and check ours this pm. Oddly, the donkey shed has a proper terracotta tiled roof but its walls are thin and draughty. Baffles me but it will make a good potager shed.
Wonky - good work with the pergola. Are you planning to sit out there in cold weather? Do you really need evergreen if you're mainly going to need the privacy in clement weather? I'd go for colour and perfume myself and do repeat ramblers and clematis.
Dove - enjoy your sketching. Will you do paintings from them later?
Chicky - glad the talk was good. Once we have enough material I'd like to go no dig but that will take some time and I need to investigate other sources of composted material. Neighbour's horses will help but not enough. Enjoy your reunion.
LP and Joyce - take it easy. Plenty of good weather on its way soon and you need to be fit.
Hosta - hope the bonus is good this year. Every little helps.
Really must go and paint. Have a good one everyone whatever you're doing.
