Evening all

Well, my first and lengthy post pertaining to all your well beings was lost to the ether since I wrote it in the bath and the screen froze on the last smiley

So now, at the risk of sounding uncaring...

Get well soon BL  & Dove and make good use of the OH Bekkie, nice job on the new car uncle Verdun. Bad luck on the death of yours PD  show us your plants Yvie and nice job to all the litter pickers  you deserve chocolate as does fidget for all her industry this week.

Sorry for those with snow I don't really know what we had here since I've been shut in a little room for most of the last two days but I did see it snow on one of my breaks and it's been frosty in the mornings, but nothing lying.

Now I've had a thorough wash from Flynn and my bath, it's time for doing nothing

I had a metal arch that fell down after a few years, nothing to do with the two clematis busy growing up it but the feet rotted in the ground. Just my experience  if its any help Yvie.

my advice would be to sort something sooner rather than later

Have a really fun but restful weekend Chicky, you deserve it!

Off to work this morning, see Bekkie, I iz good girl and gets up at the alarm

Scrubbed up and ready to bake a mountain of donuts...just coffee first

Evening all. Last stop before bakery shifts, yes bekkie I am up at stupid o'clock but I've also sobered up some

Glad everyone has enjoyed their evening, especially KEF on her B day and Yvie for her amazing efforts in the garden! You certainly beat me  and deserve a lovely beautiful little sanctuary this summer sitting at your bench with a glass of wine or four 

Night night from me, hope everyone enjoys their weekend

Well I'm on my third pint of Pimms so...if there's a party, I think I'm it

Working the weekend as usual so I'll be reading but commenting less since its so much effort to think-type and make sense at the same time

Lovely choice of hellebore KEF and excellent tactics for getting your own way

well done to Hostafan1 for surviving hospitals  and Yvie *superwoman* for being epic in the garden.

it's rained here all day without stopping even once. It's my fault, so very sorry about that but at least us gardeners have a helping hand watering in all our newly planted stuff.

Off now to cuddle OH. He's had to work to a deadline today whilst suffering a terrible sinus headache so he's in bed watching tv and I need to show him some expensive greenhouses to cheer him up

What a lovely saying bekkie "life's too short to go without happy things" love that

It's my birthday

Meep meep! Have a great B day

Back from the gym, didn't buy anything in town, just a little bit of fridge stuff at the SM which is next to the gym and I now have plenty of room in my lovely new rucksack (with secret pockets and 49 zips)

Anyways...raining all morning here and ground is muddy in places where I've moved the bark aside to plant. Still really happy with it all though, fingers crossed it stays that way.

Show us all your lovely expensive purchases KEF or whatever you buy. Have a lovely day

Get well soon, all those with colds (seems to be spreading)

thanks for the advice on Lonicera Baggesen's Gold...not sure we will start the hedge now since I wanted to begin the process of growing one before the fencing falls down but OH wants bigger plants in the ground and whilst he says expense is no problem, I'd rather not have another *job* to do this year, so I'll just buy it all end of year.

As for buying things...a new greenhouse is def on the cards as OH is getting upset with all the plants around the house Anyone with experience of wooden greenhouses? We don't want aluminium and price isn't an issue so any recommended companies would be great
