Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Posted: 30/01/2014 at 07:42

Like the last one Brumbull. Having a down at the moment, things can only go up!

In tight areas I use glyphosate in a small spray bottle (old cleaning liquid bottle like the one below) and use a piece of cardboard (or similar) to shield any "good" plants next to the weed. It's fiddly, but works well! But best to wait till the weeds are actively growing.

Morning "ordinary" Brumbull What a shame, here I was, hoping to be "speaking" to Sir Brumbull and showing off my posh friend!

Baskets sound lovely, funny you should have made a round one. Just bought a booklet from Amazon called Hanging Baskets by the RHS and they describe how to make a round basket just like that! Lovely booklet with lots of suggestions of flowers for hanging baskets. Haven't decided what I will plant in mine yet, only have 3 that hang around the pergola (might get tempted to get a 4th one!).

Hope you and Albert have a great day and not too much rain.

Good Evening FORKERS

Good evening Brumbull, enjoy your buffet and don't drink too much!

I can't help wondering, but do you by any chance have a title/Sir before your name? With all your hanging baskets, houses etc. I'm imagining nothing less than a stately home! 

If I catch 'em I swear I'll bury 'em.....

Thank you Brumbull from diverting this from a murder scene to a laugh!

Are you sure they're cat poo, did you see them doing it? Cats seldom poo in the open, they find somewhere they can bury it. Any foxes around where you are?

That is a beautiful, solid looking bench, Brumbull, well worth the money. Can just see you and Albert sitting on it contemplating your garden!

Morning Brumbull and Brian

Sunny but cold here today, snow expected tomorrow!

Brumbull wrote (see)

Well found a four sweater oak bench for my garden, not keen on the price though .... £428.00. !!

If your oak bench is wearing 4 sweaters Brumbull, it should be quite happy! Have fun at the GC.

Sounds like you had a great time! Hope your friends don't live near any of the troubles going on in Egypt.

See you discovered the emoticons, ha ha!

Look forward to seeing the photos, have a great day!
