Morning everyone.  I am going to have to start posting before I go to bed!  You're all such early birds.

Sue, love that ad. Now I know what's been causing my problem all these years.  Wasn't the food, it was the shampoo.  Always use one for volume too. 

Oop, son just emerged and gone in garden.  Dare I hope that he's going to do what I need.  Was juvenile and didn't speak to him or say goodnight yesterday.  Always petulant kids at heart aren't we.

Hope all the workers have got good weather today so they can get out and do some planting.  I will be ecstatic if my slabs are put back as I can then put everything back.  I bet you will all be glad too cos it will mean I won't be moaning about it any more.

Have a good day.

Thanks everyone.  I did wonder about it sitting in water.  I know that it was because when next door dug to put his concrete posts in, the hole filled with water!  We do suffer with flooding, garden only, when we have excessive rain.  Also thought about the leaves and gales we have been having.

No idea what it is Verdun.  You should know by now that I buy without knowing what I am buying.

Note to self, must be more patient.

I have had a Eucalyptus tree for years.  Regularly chop it down so that it's compact and it keeps its small leaves.  Did the same last year and it looks like it is dying.  No new growth and now the leaves are dappled red and brown.  Has two 'trunks' one with nothing at all. Would the flooded garden have done anything to it.  I always thought they were thirsty trees.  What do you think?

Second time of trying.  Fingers crossed.

Evening everyone and welcome back Zoomer. Pleased you want to stay with this motley crowd.

I know I would be tearing my hair out without my laptop.  It beats TV anyday. I'm always using mine for one thing or another.  Surprising what you can learn. It's good to be outside again though isn't it.

Son poked his head round the door at 7.30 thanking me for letting him in.  Said I wished I had left him to sleep in his car.  I know it's not worth me ranting and raving as I will be the one that suffers cos I will just upset myself. 

That bike does look mighty tempting though Woo.

lawn maintenance, under poor conditions

Suffered with moss at the end of my South facing garden for years.  Wouldn't like to think how much I spent on returfing, reseeding it.  Finally, last year, I gave in and am now the proud owner of a big new bed, which I have edged with all the rockery I took out of another part of the garden and am gradually planting it up.  The only good thing about the moss was it was green.

The little angel is still in bed. Am trying very hard not to get wound up.  Will be having his guts (if he has any left) for garters when he eventually emerges and if he dares give me that silly grin I witnessed this morning at 3.40 I swear I will black his eye, or better still, push his motor bike over. That will hurt him more.

Was contemplating painting the wall of next door's garage, which forms a barrier between us, but it is so windy and turned really cold. Another day.

Thanks Blackest.  Have installed both. Need to see now if I can alter it.

mirky pond

I have to confess to doing nothing about the murky water. At present, pond as clear as a bell, but a couple of days ago, it started getting a bit murky with all the sun we had here in the SE.  I just try not to worry about it too much, as I've found you can't beat the sun! I keep a check on the water, keep pump and filters relatively clean, make sure there's plenty of oxygen, ie, airpumps and, at present, don't feed too much.  This morning, with the temperature drop, they weren't that interested.  After 10 mins, I scooped what was left out. 

Used to lose sleep over the blooming pond, but life's too short.
