    afternoon all, yes I am still here, bit ragged around the edges, bit of a lull in moving activities, we’ve to have survey done on bungalow, more for our peace of mind than anything else and waiting to sort actual moving date out – have been packing stuff up for the past 2 weeks, OH has a train set (an some) that has taken him weeks to dismantle…[Read more]

    • Crikey Jenny … you sure do have your work cut out!
      I understand the ‘tensions?’ between you and OH re packing … here it would be the other way round with the Teds!!! :lol: Best of luck :lol:
      How difficult with the growing season too … as I remember last year when I just wasn’t there for the plants … but that was different.
      Again Jenny … all…[Read more]

      • Hi Jenny. I was the chief packer when we moved several times ;-) We had to have a separate removal van for all our plants and garden stuff. It will all come right in the end. We shall look forward to hearing about the new place when you finally move in.

  • I have the same as Cilla Anne it is ok, does the job and didn’t cost a lot from memory

    morning all, from a sort of sunny South Lakes, plan to have a run (in the car I hasten to add) up the coast later, just for a change of scenery, house sale etc. is at the waiting stage, buyer had structural survey done here this week so it is waiting for things to move on Enjoy your day folks

    • Morning Jenny – enjoy your jaunt and fingers crossed everything runs smoothly with the house sale :fingers-crossed: It is a nerve wracking time :excruciating: Are you staying local and do you have somewhere to move to when the house sells?

    • Fingers crossed for you, Jenny :good:

    they will grow very well outside Anne, as garlic needs a bit of cold to get it going well, I sometimes buy mine from the supermarket veg section and sometimes I buy “proper” ones from seed company – both grow ok

    lovely little bird, they breed quite happily in my garden, had a very good result last season quite a good clutch of new birds, daughter calls them LBJ’s little brown jobbies

  • Yewbarrow replied to the topic Is this Mahonia? in the forum Gardening Questions 1 month ago

    a nice shrub to have at this time of the year, may be followed with black berries which the birds like – the blue tits also like the flowers

    morning all, thickj fog outside but no gales at the moment, well what a rollercoaster this last couple of weeks have been, sold our house, bought a bungalow – yes I know all the paperwork etc. etc. has yet to be done, am not raising a glass yet until that’s out of the way – its the nail biting bit now, waiting for survey results and anything else…[Read more]

    morning all from a snowy/sleety/rainy south lakes – take your pick we’ve had the lot over the last couple of hours – thunder storm yesterday morning too and then sun all afternoon, couldn’t get bored with the weather this weekend – ha ha – had an offer for our house which we have accepted, in a bit of a daze really after all this time and don’t…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenny and congratulations on getting an offer. Fingers crossed for the rest of it now. Do you have your eye on somewhere you want to buy? And will you stay local? I thought I had the morning to potter as these gales were supposed to hit this afternoon, according to the forecast but the rubbish weather is here right now.

    • Good luck with the house sale, Jenny :fingers-crossed: I echo Jenn’s questions ;-) HAGD :-)

    afternoon clickers, off back into the garden in a while, lovely sunshine still up here, bats were out flying last night, never seen them out so early before- is this really summer and we’ve hibernated through spring or what? enjoying it whatever.

    sympathies with ground elder got some of that too, flipping stuff If I catch up with them romans for bringing it over here they are going to get a good telling off!!! I know they used it as a tonic but its not the sort of tonic I enjoy – ha ha!

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    morning all, another sunny and warm day here, just loving the weather, getting to grips with weeding as well, the amount of moss that has grown this winter is just incredible, never known so much on the flower beds, so it is taking a bit longer to get he weeds out, had a brimstone butterfly pass through 2 days ago and a thrush has been singing its…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenny – it looks like it is going to be a good year for ground elder in my garden :eyeroll: The birds are going absolutely berserk here…they are loving this weather. Have a lovely day :good:

    • Good morning Jenny, we have a vociferous Blackbird each morning and it’s sings a beautiful song :-) :rose:

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    morning all, sun doing its best but a bit murky here too, very damp outside, surrounding fields waterlogged so if it could dry up a little bit would be grateful, off shopping shortly and then something or other to keep me occupied for the rest of the day, not sure what yet. Enjoy your day folks

    • HAGD Jenny :-) I have been out to fill the bird feeders, and seen lots to do out there, but my “Get-up-and-go” is still in vacation mode :confused: ;-) Will send some sunshine, it’s lovely here in CP. :rose:

    bumble bee here Cilla – came in the conservatory, put it out, came in again, gave it a good talking to and told it to go and do its work, not much in flower though for it to feed on

    morning all, well that’s another week gone – phew! the storm was quite something, no real damage here fortunately, apart from 5 hours without electricity yesterday morning, breakfast by candle light – so romantic – or not, conservatory started leaking on the side which doesn’t get the weather – had house viewing due as well – but today the sun…[Read more]

    • Mmmm :good: :lol: that’s about the size of it Jenny [ the rugby+ironing combo I mean :lol: ] You have had quite rough weather in your neck of the woods haven’t you? :bad: Enjoy the afternoon. :love: :rose:
