Sorry orchid. Feel guilty now    Often chimney pots are chucked out or unwanted so free. ,keep eyes peeled

Fairy...painting your washing?  When I saw my mum last week she thought I had a big cut on my face...it was a big splash of brown fence paint.  Why  did no one tell me?    Had to laugh tho 

 

Keep lawn looking nice

Chris,,if it's nice and level I would rake/scarify, tine it (fork in all over the lawn to aerate) and reseed bare patches.  Keep it well watered until germination.

Regular mowing, a good feed in spring plus weed and moss treatment.  Don't let it dry out in summer.  A couple of nitrogen feeds in summer too.  

 I top dress too but think if you do the above your lawn will begin to look good

Love that colour artjak ...well worth waiting for 

The fuschia is quite vigorous ...moved it too many times I think in finding the perfect spot for it.  Nice silvery pale green leaves ..delightful.

Flora rose, had lots of bees this summer ...butterflies too.  Buddleias of course but agastaches attract them big time

Hey, I've just bid on eBay for a chimney pot .  Previous bid was £10 but I've offered £35 

Bloomin hot here.  Not complaining but I've just planted out over 100 bare root wallflowers in veg patch. The ground is rock hard and dry.    it's amazing how much growth they will put on in next couple of months down here.  I will then transplant during late autumn and winter where they will make large individual specimens in early spring.  Most years they can be 2 to 3' tall and across 

Garden girl, I recorded Beechgrove  too so might just take a 30 min break

Got all mine  for free 

If you get the chance to get an old ceramic sink grab it.  They make excellent stone troughs.  A tufa mix of cement and peat makes them look exactly like stone ....I again got 3 of these ....for free
