    Just Beautiful.

  • Morning Clickers, lovely Morning here, and can’t wait to get Outside and tackle those Weeds under the Raspberries, I have to sit on a Chair to do this, as can’t stand unaided, but since my dear Son in Law is recovering from a Heart Attack, someone has to weed, he did all that. But it is amazing what you can do when you have to, but with my…[Read more]

    • As you say Tina, where there’s a will there’s a way :good: well-done for not giving in, it can’t be easy :rose:

    • You sound fiercesome with your trusty weeder, Tina. I could have done with one of my own when I cleaned out the raspberries recently, the whole area was infested with Sticky Willy.

    Morning all, Haar has not lifted, but the Forecast is good, so planning to get Outside as soon as possible. Got my Seeds of ;Attar of Roses’, yesterday, all the way from Bulgaria, and sent for six ‘Apricot Beauty’ Foxgloves on Ebay, love that Shade, and while pulling them apart to go into ‘Nursery Quarters’, an old Bird Ball Container, I find…[Read more]

    Morning all from a miserable Fife, plenty of Work to be done inside, as do not fancy going out, been spoilt by a few Days of Sun, but am not being a Wimp, it really is damp and nasty here, without the Rain we so badly need. I bought more Plants yesterday, Foxglove, Apricot Beauty, Shades of Orange are my favourite Colours, and am turning a…[Read more]

    Oh Dear, have left a Word out after ‘certain’ Supplier, will do, but cooked his Goose with me, not good enough.

    • Hi Tina, very pleased that you’ve had a bright gardening-style morning … sadly things are clouding over here, so must out again, whilst I can. Laters :rose:

  • Ambersparkle posted an update 1 month ago

    Morning all, can’t believe this glorious Weather, so am off outside as soon as possible, just washing Breakfast Dishes, and the Ice Cream Maker. Made Ice Cream yesterday, could not get the Top off, wrestled with it, full of Ice Cream, actually took a Knife to it, did get it undone in the end, but the remains of the Ice Cream clung stubbornly to…[Read more]

    There are no Holes Walt, as there are no Fruit or Leaves. Going to cut off the affected Bits, but might have to bin it. My big Plum Tree is covered with Blossom.

    My young Plum Tree in a Pot, is not producing any Leaves, but is oozing a sticky substance from a couple of Branches. it was planted last Year.

    Good Morning all, a bit grey here but it might brighten up but not forecast, so think it is in for the Day. My ‘Pondclear’ came yesterday, so want to attend to that, first Thing. Have a Problem, that Iwill put in the appropriate Place. Bought a young Victoria Plum Tree last Year, and put it in a big Tub. Expecting a nice lot of juicy Plums this…[Read more]

    Not good when a faithful old Friend, /Gardening Tool, or any other piece of Kit goes, it has been so useful for so many Years, and they don’t make anything to last now. Friend’s Bread Maker has just packed in after 18 Years, it must have been one of the first, I find it easier to make Bread by Hand, myself.

    No Sun here, Jane, very overcast, but we have had a good few Days of the Bright Stuff, and have accomplished much, so glad to have a rest really, have a good Day, Tina x
