Fowl treatment or wot?((

Posted: 17/05/2016 at 18:56

following a free steak...much niece refused to allow me to carry a box of pelleted chicken manure in her nearly new Audi.  My feathers were mightily ruffled 

I could smell nothing.  She said it "stank".     I asked the young guy at the til if he could smell anything....."bit strong" he said and lurched back.  A customer behind me said it was "ponging".   It smells like a perfumed rose said I 

anyway in no mood to chicken out I caught the bus instead.  Luckily I got a seat to myself as the smell got stronger and stronger. 

Have I been unfowly treated? 

(More importantly the manure was half price so I am clucking happily but I do wishbone my niece was more understanding 

Who was being unreasonable?    Fowl play or not?

Whispering miscanthus in late summer.   Endless banks of it  by the river locally create a magical sound.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 17/05/2016 at 15:29

Dilemma today....being treated to a meal later but need not to miss out on lunch so got early lunch in before an hour or so in the garden.  since it is free I need to make space for a very large helping 

rain threatens every now and then but it is dry, very warm and mostly sunny. ,

planted lupins, dahlias, kniphofia, cosmos xanthos a couple of salvias and mulched to complete another border.  It should rain so planting will be well watered in 

Geum keenbutgreen is popping down to build me a pergola like theirs and all for free  so I am very excited
