  • morning all, think we can slacken the guy ropes off a little Ophelia seems to be calming down a bit – not as bad as preducted and we have had worse storms here before, and will again I am sure, the gales have very kindly blown all the leaves into three neat piles close to the house, so that is my job this morning – hope you all managed to keep…[Read more]

    • Hello Jenny. It is good to know all our clickers are safe. How kind of the wind to save you sweeping up the leaves :lol:

    GC will calm the nerves re neighbours brambles, got a bit of that to do as well Jenn, but as the neighbour at the bottom of our garden is in her 90’s I don’t mind that bit, but the side boundary just don’t seem to notice until it is beyond a joke, nice people though, so just get on with it.

    afternoon each, not a bad day here, bit of sunshine, lot warmer, saw large flight of geese come in at the end of last week, winter is on its way, about 60 geese from the north east, and earlier in the week two smaller flights coming from north west – planted up pots with spring bulbs this morning so that feels better, still lots of clearing up to…[Read more]

    good morning each, bit quieter here and the sun is doing its best, but very wet everywhere, more curtains to sort today – saw two flights of geese come in from the north west this morning, winter is on its way me thinks, and have a delightful group of goldfinches who fly together each morning before landing on our silver birch tree, there are…[Read more]

    morning clickers from a blustery South Lakes, very wet too, off to church shop and then curtains to alte when I get back, only place I can work on them is the floor so will probably be crawling around all afternoon – ha ha – as long as I can get up afterwards I will be fine – enjoy your day

    in my days as a childminder and girl guide leader and many first aid trainings we were told that about 1 in 5 CPR attempts work, but that you have to try because you have to, if that makes sense, is it the same with a defib, keep trying until qualified medics come

    chemist is probably doing it because they get paid BS – our drs has a notice in the waiting room saying that if you go elsewhere and pay for it then the surgery does not get paid for you their patient having the flu job elsewhere

    morning clickers, lots and lots of heavy rain overnight, thought I might get a bit more clearing out of flower bed done this morning but everywhere is awash, off to son’s this afternoon so will take it easy this morning instead me thinks – enjoy your day folks

    • Afternoon Jenny. How frustrating not to be able to get on with your garden but I hope your afternoon is enjoyable. :-)

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    It did here too Anne, managed a bit more clearing out of one of the flower beds this afternoon, sunshine – lovely too

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    morning each, grey and damp here – do wonder what us in the north have done to the weather gods to be rationed with sunshine, yesterday turned out terrific after rain overnight and back to “normal” today – never mind, shopping and then to GC to sort out spring bulbs – enjoy your day everyone

    Thanks Walt try not to use chemicals on stuff but worth knowing may have to use it. Very old plant and lots of wet weather, humid at times most of summer just perfect for fungus type problems

    afternoon clickers, bit grey up here this last couple of days but spent today in garden, my fuschia has got rust and looks ‘orrid, don’t think I can save it but have made up a garlic spray and given it a good squirt also tackling flower bed which needs sorting and plants need splitting up – bit of a task but will go at it gently – hope you and…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenny. Murky but dry here. I’m sorting flowerbeds too and now exhausted. Have a relaxing evening.

    • Hello Jenny :-) good to see you – gently does it ;-)

    • Hello Jenny. I use ‘Rose Clear Ultra’ to see off pests and diseases on my Fuchias & Roses, it does a good job :good:

    Just returned from a week in north Devon not bad weather, great cottage and a great time. Went to Rosemoor loved it. Back north to grey skies and rain just popping to plot to see what’s what. Hope you clickers have been behaving during my absence and will catch up another day

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month ago

    morning all, hey guess what – the sun is shining out there, either that or someone has left a flipping great light on somewhere, the fields are awash with water and it is more than damp up here so I think a bit of sun is more than welcome, especially as today is the big annual Agricultural Show I bet it will be squashy and v.muddy – grandson is…[Read more]

    Agree BS – life has been so hectic this past few months I seem to go ages without even touching my computer, never mind keeping up with GC. The weather here in South Lakes has been rotten this summer, we get an odd one or two days with lovely hot sun and then back to rain and grey again and always a coldish wind – its a wonder anything has grown…[Read more]

    night all, I’m pickled and chutnied out so off to bed, a couple of further chutney’s to make, rhubarb and something to use up courgettes and green toms – so that’s tomorrow sorted, hope your harvest has been as good as mine so far, bit overwhelmed with some things – anyway time for bed more another day

    • Glad to be able to say “Hello Jenny”, as we seem to be ships that pass in the night at present. This has not been a good year for me, purely my own fault – doing other things, and dealing with perpetual poor weather. The tomatoes have some fungal disease which I’m dealing with by cutting off affected foliage and full ventilation- not botrytis…[Read more]

    morning clickers from a very wet South Lakes, Saturday was glorious, sun and more sun, but then wet, wet, wet – do I want to do housework – no, have a few cuttings which need potting on, might do that instead – enjoy your day wherever you are
