Rigger gloves not gardening gloves

Posted: 24/04/2016 at 14:14

I had the same problem when I moved into my house,  just over 3 years ago.  We even found an upside down plastic pond liner buried in the soil.  

Keep at it, it will turn into gardening eventually.

Bird Poo

It might seem a stupid question, but are you sure it's bird poo? If you can post a pic someone will confirm .

Is this a senior moment or am I correct?

It may possibly be your hearing.  I didn't realise how much I couldn't hear until I got my hearing aids.  

Is there anything missing from this home made compost?

According to Wikipedia,  goditia is now clarkia.  And I agree they are gorgeous.

Lovely day and a busy one.  Dug up a conifer that weighed a ton.  Wheelbarrow was full.  Replenished the soil and planted a series of perennials and potted lilies then mulched.  

A cheeky so and so took a photo of me with soil over my face....promised to put it on facebook ......ha ha 

lucky here that frost is not offen a problem doubt your magnolia will still show a few flowers later Bob 

Can you get them to put it on here please?..pretty please


Bad knees

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 13:26

I don't seem to have the same problem as most of you.  My knees are not  (much ) of a problem.  But I have gone bad from the waist upwards.  Spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands and neck all have arthritis. 

But you can always find someone worse than you, if you look around.  I always think "there but for the grace of God go I "

House names that suit the garden (or don't)

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 10:16

A message from OH to all who have house names, but no number.  Please make sure the name is visible.  He used to be a courier and on dark, winter evenings looking for a house with just a name is a nightmare.

It's nice to see you slept well after the broken nights you have had recently,  you must have needed it. 

Look after yourself.
