Lawn looking poor

Such a wide range of conditions over such a small country Punkdoc.

Something suspicious here....hello, hello, hello.  There are some subtle clues, not apparent to the average guy, that 2 people will be having a meeting today.  Haven't worked out the jargon yet but already think feathers are involved and I strongly detect the hatching of a plot.  rest assured I will get to the bottom of this. 

Hello forkers

Cloudy, warmer and calm today

Yep zoomer I think it would be just as good.  

Club root is the bane of those gardening on acidic soils and rarely affects alkaline ones.

Most lawns aren't looking at their best just now.  Tired, winter blasted and hungry.  A spring feed and regular mowing will restore your lawn baza

Respectfully Edd you sound like a strong stubborn guy.....maybe anger apparently healing all?  Such "masculine" emotions masked but did not resolve deeper emotions for me.

i think you'll get there 

Help please!

Victoria, my neighbour soaked numerous rags with creosote to deter badgers.  Not sure it deterred badgers but I notice he kept his Wimdows closed and his garden looked awful and smelled baaaaaad

Powerful words.  Powerful emotions Edd.  

Sometimes though the thought that others have similarly strong feelings can be overlooked...?  

i guess we all feel driven to walk away but what happens to those walked away from? every one of us needs a break from time to time but not everyone can take one.  Apparently my dad went walk about when my youngest brother was born.  He needed to clear his head.  Disappeared for 6 weeks.  However, my young mother had to handle 3 small boys alone....?  When did my mum clear her head?

no judgement Edd.  None at all. wish you all you need to resolve things

Oh Bekkie,  doc said skin damage because of sun exposure over the past 115 years.  Got a cream to help.  Doc had worse cold than I had.  My blood pressure and other tests were ".excellent".   As I left I advised the doc to keep warm and drink plenty of hot liquids.  My niece thinks me a know all..... But I simply felt he needed my counsel 

Help please!

I did get  the odd visit from badgers few years ago but I now have wall/fence and solid gates so no problems now. I notice a neighbour further down is having his stone work regularly damaged and I suspect badgers.  he recently cleared his hedge and clearly invited a badger run. (?)
