Evening all.

much cooler here today but stayed dry until this evening. The skip is now full and I have a lot more garden back. OH is hoping to start turning the area over next weekend, weather permitting, and will be constructing a compost bin and a couple of raised veggie beds. I'm as excited as a kiddy in a sweetshop  We are both suffering with aching backs and shoulders today so will be taking it easy for a couple of days. We are both back to work tomorrow so won't have time to over exert ourselves anyway. 

I was a bit naughty today, went to shops to get milk and popped in to gardening shop.....the 2 mini bay trees that I've been admiring on my last few visits just leapt into may arms.... They obviously wanted to go to a loving buyer, how could I refuse 

Now I'll have to buy 2 nice pots!

Sorry TT, just missed you there! I used to enjoy a long soak with a nice glass of wine. Unfortunately these days only one glass gets me sozzled, so that combined with the heat of the bath could be fatal for me...... I blame my age related hormones

Funny you should say that Nut, the consultant did mention having just one eye treated was an option, as depending on the task required the relevant eye would send the message to the brain, fascinating isn't it!

Or stupid  Nut !.......My sister had it done a couple of years ago and hasn't looked back (excuse the pun). It doesn't bother me wearing glasses for tv, driving etc because I was still able to read without taking them off but now I'm pushing them up and down my nozzle to focus, gets annoying

Used to prop my book behind the taps til my eyesight deteriorated, now can't see the book never mind the writing ..... On that note I've taken the plunge and booked to have laser eye surgery in July, watch this space!

GG your pics look amazing, your garden is lovely. I thought about you today whilst I was gardening. After having an extension built we have started our front garden from scratch. We've had low stone walls built and a new pathway and I'm gradually filling in the border which isn't always easy as I'm a relatively novice gardener and not always sure what to put where. I put in a couple more shrubs today and my acers and hostas are filling out nicely. I stood back and had a moment of satisfaction at the result and it was then that I thought of you and all the work you have been doing. So you're certainly not boring, give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it 

Hope everyone has had an enjoyable day and the weather has been as lovely as it has been here.

Went to the GC this morning to buy some screening and just had to have an agapanthus 'luly', also spotted an epimedium which went in the trolley too, I'd admired one at one of my patients gardens so was pleased to get one today. From there we went to a local gardening shop and bought a couple of blue delphiniums.

Ive had such an enjoyable and yet tiring day, shame the forecast isn't good for tomorrow. Must go now and wake OH, I can hear him snoring in the bath !!!!
