    Morning clickers. No gardening for me as we are off to ComicCon in a mo’ which is at the Excel centre in my old stomping ground of East London but I have been gardening over the past couple of days and I bought some plants yesterday :-) The fire bowl came on Friday and that has spurred us on to dig over the patch of ground where it is all…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Looks to be another lovely day here – yesterday was a proper scorcher. My little thermometer said 25° and it felt like it. The corten steel edging came yesterday and after making it up we decided that the circle needs to be bigger so had to order another pack. It means we won’t be able to get it in over the BH weekend but…[Read more]

    Hello Star. Thank you – I do diligently cut them in half and take the pips out. I thought I read it somewhere when we first got Jake but couldn’t remember where so I have always taken them out to be on the safe side (if that makes any sense at all :lol: ). He will only eat them if we are outside or the blackbirds are trying to eat…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Sun is shining and today looks to be very fine indeed. Birds are singing and Jake is being a little devil and eating the apples I just chucked on the lawn for the blackbirds…naughty woofer. Ordered the bowl for the fire pit last night so need to crack on with that little project now. OH had ordered black metal edging for…

    • That Viburnum is gorgeous, and what a feisty shape Jenn! :lol:
      I recognise your ‘greeny tinge thang’ I have a plant which presents green petalled flowers before they turn white too and it’s extraordinary! :dance: :lol:
      HAGD :rose:
    • Jenn………..I expect you know this but just thought I should mention that apple seeds are deadly to dogs…..I think they have arsenic in them.

    Afternoon clickers. Just replying to Anne, I thought that I always show the same patch of my garden. Well, this is the other side of that circle. It is a continual work in progress as I am having trouble getting plants to thrive on this side. I have been adding mulch to improve the soil but it is the sunnier side and dries out so quickly which…

    Thanks Anne :rose: It’s just a little patch of grass but it’s nice for Finn and Jake to run around on :-) It could do with some attention but as long as it is green I don’t really mind :lol:

    Morning clickers. Sun is trying to break through the layer of white cloud that has been here for a few days. Had a good gardening weekend despite the constant threat of drizzle/rain – tidying up the front slopey raised bed thing at the front of the house, weeding and making a start on digging over the fire pit area – OH ordered some metal edging…

    Morning Jane. That sounds lovely. I love coneflowers (I can’t spell echiwotsitea :disappointed: ) but don’t have much luck with them coming back for a second year.

  • Jenn posted an update 1 week, 2 days ago

    Morning clickers. Thank fudge it’s Friday! Grey and a mite chillier here today and some rain due later but the weekend looks good for pottering. I have commandeered the OH this weekend to help me with the front garden (I hate the slopey bit and the planting under the window isn’t working for me) and maybe make a start on our fire pit area. We…[Read more]

    Morning loverlies. Another nice start to the day here in Essex – a bit cooler than yesterday but sunny and dry, so can’t complain. Blummin’ starlings are eating all the bird food I put out…my little robin couple will be going hungry. It’s funny to watch the starlings bickering and pushing each other off the bird table though. Hope to get…[Read more]

    Many happy returns Al – so pleased you had a lovely day and fantastic cake :cake:

    Hi Anne. hank you. Luckily the boys shake things off nice and quickly. It takes me a little bit longer because of my medical history but had a bite of dinner last night and a small lunch today so must be on the mend :good: It’s all gathering apace, isn’t it :-) I have some cosmos to pot on but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Love…[Read more]

    • Take it easily Jenn :good: Great on your Cosmos. :good: I am having zero luck so far with mine…will get some more when I see some , or bite the bullet and buy a few ready grown in pots. Not so much fun as seeds but possibly more reliable :confused: :-) HAGrE :rose:

    Afternoon clickers. Sorry not been around this last few days – was super busy at the weekend then we all went down with a tummy bug on Sunday night and felt bleugh. Finn had Monday & Tuesday off school because of it but is well enough to have gone back today. Myself and OH are feeling a lot better now so hopefully I can get outside during this…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenn :high-five: Glad you feel better …. schooldays and bugs eh … I remember them well :lol: Am just taking a quick break from potting on seedlings that are all coming on like mad. Little Violas are even blooming!!HAGeoA&E :rose:

    Morning clickers. Dry but grey-ish at the moment and more rain forecast for this afternoon :light-rain: The ground is sodden. I shall have to get out this morning and sow some lettuce unless I want a soaking. Food shopping and a trip to a decorating centre for a paintbrush. Since Homebase went through its Bunnings-now-not-owned-by-Bunnings…[Read more]

    Morning loverlies…well, that’s quite enough rain for a little while, thank you very much! Oh it was a wet old day yesterday and today looks to be murky and damp. It is absolutely sodden outside which makes me rethink my plans for spreading wood chip at the lottie. If it was a bit warmer I wouldn’t mind so much but cold & wet…nah, not today.…[Read more]

    Hi Lynn. Enjoy K&N :good: PC World are the pits. Sometimes the OH goes in for a bit of showrooming if we are passing but he generally orders his computer bits and bobs online. He has stopped a bod in PC World before because they were so horrendously condescending (OH has a degree in computer science :lol: ) and asked for the…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Absolutely bucketing down here so I shall continue with decorating Finn’s room – 4 coats to cover the blue :excruciating: Planted my beans yesterday, Al’s Rhondda Blacks, a yellow pencil pod climbing bean, a flat climbing bean called Helda that I really like and some Cobra green climbing beans. I thought I had a fresh packet…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) wet here too – don’t envy you painting to keep in the dry though :lol: Have a good day :-)

    • Afternoon Jenn, I have sown cobra beans this year also and I’m pretty sure I have about 1/2packet left, so I’ll send you some.
      PCworld went ok, hopefully they’ve given me the right cable??!!! Yes they are very condescending, wanted to slap the girl on Monday!! I shall bear in mind that your OH is computer literate, this is why we wanted to go to a…[Read more]

    Morning clickers and I hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend. Spent Saturday morning picking up an ebay purchase and then food shopping and Sunday we got half drowned, frozen and hailed on at the Manningtree Brocante. My word did it bucket down and the back of my legs were stinging from the sodding great hailstones :lol: In the end we…[Read more]

    Morning Karen – it was really cold last night here in Essex as well. Hope your spuds are OK :fingers-crossed:

  • Jenn posted an update 3 weeks, 4 days ago

    Morning all. Brighter start to the day although a high layer of white cloud is hanging around from yesterday. Need to go and get a few bags of compost as I suddenly have a load of potting up to do. Will need to bring the OH for some muscle as I am done in :lol: Spent yesterday painting Finn’s room and pottering in the garden. I had to move 3…[Read more]

    • Maybe , if it warms up a bit … am not into ‘cold’ at the moment! :lol:
      Good morning Jenn, and good luck with the compost-pottering :good: :rose:

    • Morning Jenn :-) that sounds like a cunning gardener’s plan – potential for a planting opportunity :lol: Enjoy the day :-)
