Morning forkers.

Up late this morning due to OH leaving me to sleep off my excessive tiredness. Got work this afternoon and its a sunny morning but prolly won't go out or I'll only find work to do.

Tom stayed in the coldframe last night, lid squeezed down as low as it will go. Toms are getting pretty tallish and already been repotted, so I am okay to do this right? I mean, obviously any threat of frost will chase them indoors again

Wintersong - so depressing about your fence - its not just the mindless damage, but the hassleof getting things put right again.  Can you protect your plants from hobnail boots with upturned buckets or hanging baskets??

Great idea!

Gorgeous garden as always DS. weather here has been sunshine all day, warm with a slight breeze.

Beware of reckless drivers!

What have I done?

That looks more likely to be slug and snail damage as adult vine weevils chomp from the edges, making more compact notches. Slugs and snails tend to chomp at any part and often interior areas of leaf

Very annoyed and depressed this afternoon due to some idiot not just crashing into our fencing but keeping the gas peddle down and ramming through a tight turn to leave my fence post almost fallen over

We already had the winter storms to content with that blew some newly installed fenceing down and the repair man trampled all over my plants to do the job correctly, but the plants were small and it was winter so nothing a bit of TLC couldn't fix.

 On this occasion, there is a climbing rose, a delicate Clematis and some shrubbery that will no doubt suffer whatever remedy is thought best. I the fence panel has a large gash in it also.

 I'm really upset because I heard the awful crashing sound but didn't think that a thoughtless driver would deliberately be destroying property without so much as a sorry.

 My new arch! Still needs the corners attaching but OH and myself are just too darn tired today.

 Poor thing is horizontal due to some landscaping yet to be done in the bottom garden

Builders across the lane from me took turns with a sledgehammer and then set fire to the roots and burnt it out of the ground. Fire wasnt very large but did the trick nicely.

Good morning all.

Achy bones today so taking it easy sowing seeds and just pottering a bit later.

Not so many alliums this year in my garden, seems two large clumps are reduced to half, so must re-establish in autumn as they are a favourite of mine  I'd also love some of the green ones but  they are expensive, no?
