grass paths

Get rid of grass paths. Yes, they look really nice at first, but you are beginning to find out their snags.

If used a lot they will get muddy. They harbour slugs and snails. They get full of weeds. The edges look untidy. I'm sure as time goes on you will discover more problems with them.

Have you thought of stepping stone paths?

Is my Japanese maple dying?

I don't quite understand, you describe a plant that's dying and then you say it looks fine apart from this.

Is it well or is it ill?

It was a man who overtook me going down a notoriously dangerous hill this morning and crossed a pair of solid white lines.

For all his impatience I drew up beside him at a roundabout 8 miles further on so he didn't gain much in his white delivery van!

Poor drainage and poor fertility.

I cut them and bring them into the house. They last in a vase quite a long time.

The corms I planted last year have been flowering since February and show no sign of stopping yet.

If the soil is moist underneath everything, why are you watering?

Are you also over-feeding?

Parkers are reputed to be good on bulbs but the reports on plants are very mixed.

Does distance between cover and bird feeders matter?

Yes, we have a large bush beside the feeder and unlike our friends down the road we are rarely troubled by the merlin or sparrowhawk.

Or trying to put two legs in the same leg of his tights or trousers. Might make him fall flat on his face!

Don't you know that women can multi-task to a high degree. Two tasks at a time is nothing!
