    I prefer Quince Jelly. Just as easy to make as the Quince Cheese.

  • New fence up. Looks really neat. Ordered new windows (9 of them just under £5,000) Coming to measure up on Friday so with any luck they will be in before Christmas.
    Had a go at digging out a huge tree stump, but it is going to take a lot more doing than I can manage in one day.

    Guess who’s e key was sticking.

    Painting, plastering, scraping tiny bits of wall papeer off the walls, digging a few more of the conifer roots out, cleaning up bricks to make the greenhouse base biggeer, emptying the big bag of sharp sand into smaller bags so I can return the bulk bag to the neighbour who gave it to us, busy really.

    The really orange sky this morning has not translated into sunshine, but I know what you mean about blue skies and cold.

    Boss has found it on line so now at least we know what the paper is called. The doors will have to wait, we need 10 of them and they were £120 each.

    Nice walk along the old railway in Parkgate (Wirral) followed by Chips and a bowl of Ice cream (prize winning stuff too!).
    Found some wallpaper we like. Brought a piece home to see if it goes and it does, but we cannot find it on line so hope they still have it when we go back in three weeks time. Nice doors too, but as we need 10 of them it may…[Read more]

    A good day for digging to keep warm, but I did too much the other day so I am feeling a bit incapacitated. We are going out tomorrow to look for wallpaper, paint and possibly doors, ice cream and chips and a long walk in a Country park, so keeping my back happy today.

    May be dry out there, but it is blooming cold.

    If left someone would have to be paid to cut it every year. It is too tall for me to reach the top without standing on steps. My arhtirtic neck does not allow me to reach above shoulder level. Neighbour also wants rid as he is finding it hard to cut his side too. Also I am mildly allergic to conifers.

    If you look closely beyond the bottom of the hedge is another Conifer hedge. That is the next one to come out.

  • Owdboggy posted an update 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Finally managed to take all but a few bits of conifer down to the recycling yard. From this to this.
    • Bravo Eric :-) Doesn’t it feel, and look good when it’s done :good: :rose:

    • You’ll gain even more useful SPACE! :-) Eric :good: :rose:

    • Do you have woods as well as garden? Interesting watching the progress.

    • I like the look of this and would leave it!

    • On second look may be boundry fence on left of tree.

    Nothing worse than a mahoosive nose bleed. Hope it is soon cleared up without treatment. I had one many many years ago (playing Rugby!) and in the end I had to have it cauterised. The smell of burning flesh is not nice, especially when it is your own. Hope it does not come to that!

    • Oh dear Eric, you poor soul, and playing rugby too :shout: I wonder how those lads leave the field in one piece and am rather glad that eldest Grandson no longer plays ;-)
      I had the nostril cauterised TWICE in TWO separate hospitals so I can empathise with your stated feelings :good:
      I am just relieved that I can now get back to normal instead…[Read more]

    Conifer hedge and stumps all removed now. All we need is some fencing.
    Gives us another 6 feet behind the shed and 8 feet behind the greenhouse base. the hedge was about 30 feet long.

    Persisting down at present. Daughter bought me a really good pruning saw. Managed to dodge the rain drops and try it out on the hedge. Difference between it and my old saw is staggering. Cannot do any more hedge trimming as the neighbours car is parked next to the next bit of hedge. It can wait until they go out tomorrow.
    Also got 2 big ton bags…[Read more]

    Another 3 stumps removed. Running out of space to put the branches though. Raining now so stopped.

  • Owdboggy posted an update 3 weeks, 2 days ago

    This is what it looks like now I have begun to remove the hedge.
  • Owdboggy posted an update 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Was supposed to be a deluge here, but all we have had is a few light showers. Managed to remove two more conifer stumps in between. Next one needs the chain saw so it will have to wait until I am less tired.

    Stopped raining long enough to clean out the car ready for a trip to Loughboro tomorrow. That is the trouble with taking car loads of conifer branches to the re-cycling place. They shed dead leaves like nothing on earth.

  • Owdboggy posted an update 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Boy is it raining. Sun shining at the same time, but the rain keeps falling.

    • Yup! We just had a third torrential shower and now butter wouldn’t melt…except it’s so :notacloudinsight: :notacloudinsight: :notacloudinsight: that it probably would!! :rose:

      • Heavy showers here now, along with a rumble of thunder? But it hasn’t been that warm. Very autumnal.
