    Afternoon each, from a grey and rather chilly south lakes, spent a couple of days trying to remove some grassy sort of thing which has escaped big time from the pond, roots all grown under gravel and membrane, ended up shovelling gravel off, ;lifting membrane and getting most of the roots out, phew, got to tacke getting it out of the pond sometime…[Read more]

    • Onward and upward, Jenny :good: Have a lovely weekend!

    • Hi Jenny. Your grass sounds like the one we planted in a border near the pond and that ran all over the place and had to be completely dug out….is it variegated? It really should be sold with a warning. I think it is Phalaris arundanacea or Gardener’s Garters. All good news on the house front, keep us posted :-)

    I am quite happy think OH has not quite made it yet, once he gets the loft sorted so he can get his model railway out and working I think he will feel happier, but am so glad we have made the move, housework doesn’t take half the time, yes the garden is a jungle, but its smaller and not bothered how long it takes to sort, it was a good move, don’t…[Read more]

    • That’s great Jenny, I am so pleased for you :love: I can understand your OH’s needs too ;-) … what I would do for a loft for the Pads Teds :lol: HALD and weekend

    So did I Anne, at our previous house one used to come and take the sultanas I put out for the blackbirds, I called him Vince and he seemed a lovely little thing – but having looked them up they carry as much disease as mice and rats and not something to have in the house – apparently the wet weather has been so bad that rodents have not been able…[Read more]

    • Crumbs!!! I had no idea. I guess that living in the countryside does have a few downsides after all. :confused: I thought that being a town dweller and always yearning for a wide-sky, green-fields view that would be Heaven on Earth was the thing. It seems we all have ups and downs :lol:

    morning all, yes I am still here, sun it shines, builders busy with new roof and other things we need doing, trying to get to grips with plot and remove weeds, just not had the time to get to it much, had an invasion of voles this last week or so, nightmare, ate half a packet of ginger nuts and half a packet of digestives, but didn’t touch the no…[Read more]

    • O-oh that biscuit-binge sounds familiar Jenny … watch out :lol:
      Hallo :love: it’s good to ‘see’ you, and don’t worry about the plot… at this time of year plots have a way of looking after themselves for a bit of down-time before we get to work on them methinks…mind you … wadooino? :lol:
      Nice to have sun today…I wondered where it had got…[Read more]

    morning all, another wet day up here, yesterday was dry but grey got the second flower bed finished and have planted up bulbs, just wish it would stop raining for a few days not just the odd day here and there, but hey ho at least we are not short of water – ha ha! have fun

    • It gave up raining today in CP Jenny … not too sure forhow long though ;-)
      Have a lovely evening … you must get beautiful skies in your neck of the woods :-) :rose:

    evening folks, rain and more rain today, we don’t really need it but hey someone thinks we do, so indoors stuff today, just ironed washing which dried outside yesterday, that fresh air smell is everywhere – lovely – have a good evening each

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month ago

    evening folks, sunshine today, quite a bit done in the garden, red admiral having a feed on the ivy flowers this morning and grasshopper sunning itself on one of the stones in the garden, very excited to find 2 grasshoppers in the garden the other day, have not seen any since I was growing up in Surrey, hope my tackling the jungle does not upset…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenny :-) good to hear…we have had unremitting gloom today, and too wet to get outside to do as I had planned so it’s nice to know that at least one garden/gardener has had some TLC :lol: HALE :rose:

    • Morning Jenny :-)

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    looking good Anne, do you have to keep it dark, never managed to keep one going

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 1 week ago

    Afternoon folks, managed some gadening today, rain first thing an a rather chilly wind but the sun keeps peeping out, clocked off now, getting a bit too stiff from digging – enjoy your evening folks

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    we’re getting there NT roof about to be renewed, bathroom to change to walk in shower and am tackling garden, jungle like at the moment, wonderful show of ivy – at least it covers the rest of the weeds – ha ha!

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 1 week ago

    morning all from a damp south lakes, sun keeps peeping but then goes away again – bit of housework, cake in the oven and praps – – – – and its a bit praps it might fine up and I can do a bit more gardening – enjoy your day folks

    • Hello Jenny :-) hope all is still good in the new place :-)

    Its below sea level a bit so doesn’t stand a chance really, but this last few years have seen it flooded more than ever, expect the 19th hole has done well out of it – ha ha!

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 1 week ago

    morning all, rain and more rain again – golf course as you come into town has been under water for days – more like boating lake, hope you are keeping dry and safe.

    • A few golf course has been closed down here as well some others are not using buggies either.

    morning clickers, the sun it shines, chappie has come to cut hedge, it will be great to get the view back, off to plot shortly, paths need strimming, weeds need sorting, very neglected this season, must do better next one – scaffolding up, waiting for roofers to come, expect they are waiting for a fine spell which lasts more than 24 hours – hope…[Read more]

    • Evening Jenny. Seeing the sun today was a big relief. Lots of villages round here have been flooded but let us hope it is receding now. It sounds a busy time for you on the plot but it keeps you out of mischief ;-) Enjoy :-)

  • I read some time ago about Jays planting acorns – as a store for later and for that we have more oak trees around than we would have done – this year seems to have been a great year for acorns so perhaps these colourful acorn planters can plant a few more

    Yes I am still here, honest, getting sorted at new spot, have done a bit of gardening but just back from week in South Devon, weather superb, cottage 17thc thatched cottage, really quiet spot, very relaxing, must get organised and get gardening and sort allotment out, just paid next year’s rent, did wonder if I would be able to keep it as we have…[Read more]

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    another wet wet day, and last night was quite cold too, could we please have just a few sunny days, the trees are turning already so autumn is just starting, haven’t been to the plot for over a week, not doing very well this year, too much else to geton with, but as all gardeners say, there is always next year – ha ha!
