Creating a Wildlife Pond

Posted: 24/09/2017 at 00:00

Hi folks latest update on the pond. I have a bud on the water lily. Wasn't expecting it to flower in the first year. So very excited. 

Not sure if it will open as we aren't getting any sun and it's getting late in the season

Evening all,  I've just spent an hour or so reading back and realised that due to my holiday I'd missed your sad news Sunny,  my thoughts are with you all and hope those kittens are helping just a little.

SGL sorry to hear about your shingles, I've never had any childhood illnesses so it wont be on the cards for me unless I get chickenpox, unlikely as I've nursed children and grandchildren through it.

Pauline, don't  know if you are still around but I just wanted to wish you all the best for tomorrow.

Hazel, hope your daughter is OK.

Sorry if I've missed anyone out.  I'm having an early night for me as I'm on nanna duty for the next three days with Jonah.  Sleep well everyone.

Well jell BM.  I like Adam Frost and agree that it's a shame if GW stop showing the development of the garden.

It's the 'journey' thing that annoys me. It seems that everyone who appears on TV is going on one.

Hi folks, been back a few days now and have been busy washing and putting away clothes.  Have managed to mow the lawns and tidy the garden a bit but it need a bit of a sort out if we do manage to get some dry weather.

I'm not going to start on about airlines as my blood pressure wouldn't cope. 

Feeling cold and tired since I returned from holiday, can understand the cold but don't know why I'm so tired.  But as others have said I shouldn't moan consider how many in the world are suffering at the moment.

Hi folks been back a few days and had lots of washing and putting away to do.  Nearly there now.  I've managed to get the lawns cut and do a bit of tidying up.  Not looking bad considering it's been left to its own devices for a couple of weeks.

Looking forward to the kitty pics. 

Looking good Chey.

Don't think I'll get much done outside today, it's as black as  bag over Bill's mothers.

Agree about airports but it's a means to an end. Won't do long haul anymore and always book extra leg room seats.

Spend lots of our time here with 'ordinary' Turkish friends. The main problem they have is lack of tourists. Feel much safer here with them than in any large European city.

Sunny don't know if you caught my last post on rezzers 23. It was just to say that we stayed at Shelly Beach in Kenya early 90's. Went on a 3  day safari. Shame it's not there anymore. The ferry at Mombasa was amazing. Like something out of an Agatha Christie novel. Will never forget the. sight of a Zulu in full costume complete with spear.

Hi folks greetings from Turkey. It's been a balmy 36c today. Not doing much at all except eating and drinking. Not like me at all.  Another 3 days of idleness then back to reality.  Our restaurant this evening

Hi folks no problem with duck poo the waiters are a step behind the ducks shooing them out of the way. 

Sunny we went to Kenya and stayed at Shelly  Beach in the early 90's. We went on a 3 day Safari in the middle of the holiday. That Mombasa ferry crossing was something else.
