Ethan came home with 2 Strawberry plants… I resisted as I still have not planted the last purchases…Other half picked up some plants for free from the local Supermarket surplus distribution centre… They too are waiting to be planted… They are all flowering well and look lov…[Read more]

    • Hi Ginny, good to hear from you and I envy you being at the Cardiff show, such happy memories. :good: Glad you had such a lovely day. :rose:

      • Hi Ginny. Lucky you, my sister and husband went as well. Happy memories of our first clickers meeting indeed :-) I hope you get those plants in soon and enjoy the sunshine.

    Well my’ pond’ has dryed up though it is damp at the very bottom… My front garden still looks green as it is normally so wet…The back has needed watering to keep it green… My lilliy’s in the greenhouse are out… Smelling gorgeous…Had a drop of rain today which saved me watering but not sure how long the moisture will last… Looking…[Read more]

    • Hi Ginny. It sounds as if you are having some fun outings. Enjoy the Royal Welsh. You’ve had more rain than us, we haven’t had any for weeks….and weeks…..and weeks :-(

    • A drop of rain? You’re one lucky lady, Ginny ;-)

    • Practically everyone here will be deeply envious of your rain, Ginny – I am absolutely sick of the sight of my hose and watering cans. What with rain and grandchildren and gardens, it sounds like your life is pretty sweet just now. Enjoy!

    What a great place to visit… Love the pics….

    Couldn’t sleep so I thought I would pop on here and see what’s been going on…Got work tomorrow morning… Cant find any glasses so squinting at the keyboard to type… Rain today so nothing done in the garden…. I have dug a little pond in the front garden the other week…. Was going to put a fiberglass liner in but when I moved a couple of…[Read more]

    • Good morning Ginny, lovely to have you back. I love the sound of your pond, is there an underground spring? It will be exciting to watch its progress. :-)

    • Hello Ginnybean :-) brilliant to have a natural pond in your garden and I bet that frog was happy :good: You should put some picture on ;-)

    • This all sounds potentially terrific, Ginny. I am full of regret that I didn’t have the foresight to make a pond when I came here, if only to encourage the frog population, and decrease the slugs. But you will get more than that from a pond – which can alter the mood in a garden quite considerably, can’t it?

  • Not been on for a while and was worried when I saw the tiny log in box. but the log in worked fine……Not got my glasses on… disappeared… so hard work anyway…… Good luck with the re-vamp… I will go and […]

    Sunshine and Showers … Was planning on going round the Botanic Gardens today but had to go to youngest daughters as had the Vet coming to her horse… Then oldest wanted us to pick up her new tumble dryer and vacum cleaner after so by the time we had delivered those it had started to rain again… His Jeep gone wrong again so good thing for him…[Read more]

    Typical , I have a week off and have a cold… We went to Picton Castle Pembrokeshire last weekend to a Victorian Christmas Festival and wandered round the gardens as well… They are raising money to restore the Walled Garden with a potting shed and the old frames/Glasshouse, and the walls themselves… Took the Grankids as well… Loved walking…[Read more]

    My dog hates the fireworks… I am working all day tomorrow.8-8 so Hubby is on dog comfort duty… I am hoping the weather stays dry for Monday/Tuesday as I am off and can make a start in tidying the garden… I suppose if it does rain I can sort out my kitchen cupboard as it is overdue..

    • Good luck with the garden, Ginny – I was full of optimism yesterday about clearing the garden, but frequent showers did for that idea… KItchen cupboard clearing is not a bad idea either – I can chuck out all the “stuff” I thought was a good idea at the time, but never used, and all the half-used stuff that’s out of date. Good luck!

  • Love your pics…. I also am planning to clear my Honeysuckle as it has taken over, the clematis is still flowering well and through the honeysuckle so I will wait until the weather upsets it before I attack that […]

    My Autistic Grand son has decided he likes to walk around Gnoll park in Neath almost every day… Love walking round there myself so it is good to share the park with him…Taken some lovely photos as well with fungi and autumn leaves…

    • How lovely that he is interested in walking Ginny, maybe a way into getting him interested in nature and gardening. :good:

      • Think it’s lovely that you can share this with him – even just quietly walking beside him builds a bond. Both my grandchildren are being/have been raised at a great distance, and this kind of bond is not really possible. And it’s building a good health habit which will contribute to your grandson’s wellbeing for the rest of his life. Think that…[Read more]

    • Lovely, Ginny :-) Hope you put some of your nice pics in the October photo competition!

    • That does sound lovely Ginny :love: :good: How old is your Grand son?HALD and enjoy your walks and the Nature too :good: :rose:
