Evening all.

Not been on today, as in the middle of a very nasty argument with neighbour and have been taking legal advice.

What makes it so frustrating, is that there are only 4 houses where we live surrounded by fields and Moors and for 25 years whoever has lived here gets on and accepts that it is slightly different living here and that there has to be some sort of community spirit.

Then a new family move in 2 years ago and everything changes. Thing have been getting steadily worse for some time, but this weekend reached a very unpleasant crescendo.

I am not normally a violent man, but........

Rant over, Gin is being consumed, just need to stay sober long enough to cook supper and wait for unhappy OH to return from work.

Hope everyone is well.

Agree with every word Northernlass, including your allegiances. I am mostly English, a bit Scottish and married to a fearsome Scot. We are off to watch Scotland vs. Samoa later in the tournament.

I am still angry about the match today.

Don,t want to sound rude Rich B, but I think we are trying to tell you something and I am not sure that you want to listen.

Hi fellow moon watchers, there is some advantage in not being able to sleep.

Well there is some advantage to not being able to sleep, after major row with neighbours.

Well worth seeing.

See what others think, but I can't imagine seedlings in a shed, even with a grow lamp are going to do well, if kept there all Winter.

Far too wet I am afraid. Moist soil yes, bog no! Mine grow in a cool place, semi - shade, in a leaf mould enriched soil.

Apart from the plants already mentioned there are many others that grow very well in my boggy area, including Lythrum, Astilbe, Acorus, Iris sibirica, Angelica gigas and Eupatorium

Morning all.

The early morning mist has lifted and it is a glorious day, I have actually removed my fleece, although I don't think it is gardening in only socks weather! Is it the Duke of Bath who gardens naked?

Have fun.

anyone got any ammi majus seeds spare?

I love them and find they grow much better from an Autumn sowing. Mine usually grow about 4 to 5 feet, however this year I forgot and sowed them in Spring. They grew to about 2 to feet and although still pretty, they lacked the impact of Autumn sown seeds.
