No rain here GG just sunny periods. Have started to clear yet another bed and salvaged 6 red heucheras and have potted up about 30 more phlox. Bed ready for clearing now. Will go for a yellow/ red/ orange theme. Has been cool colours so far. Phlox to go in another empty bed. Sitting on you know where before bath and evening in Bournemouth walking on pier and prom. Food too at some stage. Smiley!

Hi everyone. This is my first post via my phone. Have never managed to log in this way before. Just as well as this is the only internet I have at present. So sitting on my terrace drinking tea and enjoying the view. 3 sheep and a flock of guinea fowl on my paddock.
Thanks for all your nice comments. I am dead chuffed with how it has turned out. Probably exceeds my expectations. Can't find the smileys yet but I'm sending a virtual one. Thanks to GG for helping out. Another smiley.

Evening, after a lovely day planting my terrace garden. Grasses around the trees, alpines in the new troughs and ferns in a bed with log piles. A most satisfying experience after all the planning, and replacing an increasingly troublesome and disappointing bed of old roses, weedy irises, geraniums, helianthemums etc.etc. ( salvaged quite a lot to replant elsewhere, give away or sell at the Spring plant sale.

Sitting there in the shade of the trees, looking over my paddock,........

Cutting grass encourages it to "tiller" i.e. send out new shoots sideways, rather than just upwards, thus thickening up your sward. Long grass is generally not a good thing for a lawn.

It's my birthday

Deer here too Chicky, lots of little droplets on lawn. nibbling my roses that I pruned in June. By the way they are romping with clean foliage and fresh flower buds promising lots of flower soon. This way it seems I will get 2 flushes a year. Will this prove to be better than relying on repeat flowering?

Happy B'day Panda from me too.

I would love to welcome you here Verd. When I am next in Cornwall perhaps......

Lovely mellow mistiness today, sun seemingly reluctant to rise over the hill. If I can rouse myself to start early a most enjoyable day beckons. Lots of lovely creativeness, the best bit of gardening for me.

Pictures to follow if I can.

I don't think frosts are possible with the ground having a store of heat.... at least I very much hope so

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
