Morning all, I'll get up in a bit, once I've thought about it a bit longer 

Sunny here, no rain forecast

Hi everyone 

Finished work for another week and now relaxing 

Good luck with Shadow DD. Our previous dog was a black lab ,they are very smart but too obedient to automatically know the right thing to do, so some kind of training sounds perfect 

Enjoy your weekend-ish break Hosta, I'm planning Sissinghurst this year if anyone's interested,  just don't know the best time to go, probably early and late summer, might also do Christopher Lloyd's garden, it's never much appealed to me but it's very near

Ideal gardens to visit would be Hidcote and Kithsgate but they would involve a night away 

Anyhow, it rained a gooden today which the garden drank heartily, like most of your gardens  can't wait to see the growth in coming week 

P. S  What's your issue Pdoc?  I've never noticed one

Which weeds do you tolerate

Thank you nut, I have checked Google images to confirm it is cinquefoil 

This is a giant PITA for me as I live next to a public footpath smothered in it and it is costing me an arm and leg to spray  (council do nothing ) 

Moving a cherry tree - yikes!

You can have fruiting trees quite close although it depends on the rootstock and the gardening programme Beechgrove just happened to feature this on a recent programme. You can catch it on BBC iplayer

Gorgeous chicky!  And that fencing and trellis you built to keep the deer out must have cost a bob or two  

I spy box edging, hope it's not blighted  I remember your woes earlier in the year  (sure it was you )

Agreed. I found it when I was looking for an online design program a few yrs back, but ended up using pencil and paper and now store all my data on my own pc
