What's the weather like in your area?

It's CCB here,  clear, cold and bright,  touch of ice on the ground this morning so was rather nervous when I took the dog out,  it will be year this coming Monday since I fractured my ankle so no repeat is necessary  still cold oh just looked and it's 0.0c so guess the next is a -c.

Just had a hellish hail shower,  boy did they hurt the head real hard they came down would happen while I was out with the dog then it stopped as we were coming back typical  dropping down now to 1.2c,  and according to the weather men this "Beast from the West" front is not going to be as bad as they thought as it's veered away from us but it's still going to be cold with freezing fog,  think I would rather have that than snow

Thank you Gardengirl,  I have 2 chairs done in the same fashion one is the lime green and the other is vivid pink, I have another one that I rescued from a skip so I think that might have to be purple as I just love purple,  why not have colour in the garden apart from the flowers I painted my shed cream and green,  why not it's better than the boring brown.

The table was indeed painted with sample pots with equal PVA glue, I got 7 different ones as there was 7 slats on the table and I still have 7 pots full as it took really 1 full pot of paint but as you sort of made 2 pots and it took 1 pot to do the table I still have one left if you get my drift,  but one of the chairs I did last year the paint has peeled of which was my fault as I didn't sand it properly and painted it in full sun so it was drying before I could get the paint on,   I have done one of the slats in the same colour which I didn't realise at the time (it's the lime green one) so I can do that next year and I also rescued a plastic chair from a skip so I have the choice of 6 colours to use so watch this space.

The tree is a good hiding spot for the little birds that come into the garden as unfortunately the local Kestrel pays a visit now and again so they can duck into it out of the way,  I will decorate it in the next few days and post another photo.

What a nice lot of plants in the picture easy fill hanging baskets as well, I have one of those easy fill basket but did not do that well as plants were a bit small to get big enough to cover basket and slugs kept eating the plants.

What does the table look like?

Stiil can't see pic I am on firefox

These are my baskets from last year all of them are the Easy Fill type now I also have 6 wall baskets of the same bit fiddley but I just love the end results when they are growing.

Some of the poster from the Beeb boards will remember the chairs that I painted,  well this is the garden table I've done this is as it was before I let loose with my jig saw and paint pots.


 This is it now


 I like some colour in the garden when I'm sat outside in the Summer ,  judging by the one we've just had maybe the table will be bright enough next year .
