Dont get me wrong.....wouldnt kill ants in garden but around the home...??
Neighbour has them too........screaming and hysterical. She wasnt much better!!!
Agree out in the country to see the birds "hoovering" them up is quite a sight.
Bullnose dolphins are here in big numbers too right now

It will be a huge gamble growing bamboo. ,
Is it worth the risk?

In my garden today?

The HappyGrower, well that was embarrassing wasn't it? I knew Australia would be fired up for this test. England were beaten before the Test started.

What to do here?

Inside and outside conservatory thousands and thousands of flying ants. And venturing inside utility room. Luckily ant spray to hand so looks like I've got situation under comtrol. l Hope ant spray wont be banned too.....environment goodie goodies will say it should be, no doubt, so what then would we use? Ants are swarming....sprayed around places near the bungalow

HELLO FORKERS!

Red hot.
England will beat those aussies. Just mark my words.......disbelieving smilie ! Why on earth did we annoy them in the first test?

Worst Gardening Tool

Posted: 19/07/2015 at 16:53
Two favourite tools...a cornish shovel. Technique to it but it can lift a lot. Makes short work of a trench
Second is my hand trowel ...tough and strong. An elderly neighbour made it for me years back and its mislaid somewhere in the garden. Heavy, long handled and unbreakable and for me,that's important. You name it and I'll break it. Tonka toys just fell apart ......bewildered smilie there!

Planted out dwarf kniphofia, transplanted stipa tennuissima and guara white butterfly. Picked runner beans, carrots, beetroot,blackcurrants and a couple of peaches. Cut back lysimachia Bougelais to scores of buds lower down. Staked a couple of tall dahlias. Killed a bullock for tea......oh no! I got carried away.
Now to check on cricket score.....what's the betting England have already lost?

You may have seen parts of this before?

Talking to a friend the other day and she admitted to bi polar. Must be a difficult comdition to manage. I get the occasional bouts of depression......severe at times esp in fhe past....but I accept its prob not in fhe same league as rapid recycling bi polar disorder.
Oh Edd, enjoy your adventure.......no smilies available right now so assume there is one !
