I miss it too, would be the one bright spot on tv in winter, really don't watch much else anyway.

Good job our local library isn't too far away! Love my books

I get a kick out of going to the gym too, circuit training so not too difficult and always makes me feel brighter especially after a giggle with the other ladies  

Chasing young grandson around helps beat the winter blues and a kiss and cuddle when I catch him, well, you can't beat it. Wish I could bottle it and carry it around!

I like it here, too!!

I have been gardening for a number of  years but there are so many things, particularly pests and diseases, I don't know much  about and there's always someone here that has experienced and dealt with these I'm staying!

I just enjoy reading others' experiences in the garden. Ours was completely paved over but is now green and fairly pleasant, still more to do though, as always.

Oh dear, I must have missed something. I have to say I don't read that many posts but as you are  a 'regular' I tend to read yours.

As a fellow Yorkie can I be very blunt and ask you to reconsider?

Bargain of the century!!!

There was one in the garage of the house we bought, I planted a wldflower mix in it this year and an old metal dustbin, also in the garage, has been painted black and has a fatsia japonica growing in it.

I hate waste!!

Neighbour's Garden is Damaging our Wall

Tanking, as suggested above, may be the solution. We had a property with a garage wall shared with a neighbours garden, that is, the wall retained all one side of  his garden. His land was right up to the garage wall all the way along.

We never had a problem with damp, maybe try this first?

There was something very similar planned for a village I lived in  couple of years ago. Everyone was so angry, it looked like going ahead, there was a huge backlash and after  several consultations and many arguments on both sides it didn't suceed.

I hope you have a similar outcome. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Was supposed to rain today in East Mids but never arrived in our area, not a bad day, a little sun and some cloud but quite warm.

Talkback: Growing Russian vine

Once planted this near my house wall, never again, it was up the wall and over the neighbours fence in no time, clinging to a telephone wire it then bgan to make it's way onto the roof. I cut it down and dug the roots up, it went eventually, phew!!

I'm sure it can be kept in check but it's not worth the trouble...imo.
