    I took a spur of the minute decision to get grassman to dig out two three foot high and two feet wide evergreens which were encroaching either side of a potentilla.
    Will surf plant porn to see what to plant in the spaces in the autumn.

    Morning everyone.  

    Dry, bright and sunny again 😎. Those weather forecasters are rubbish.   

    Up quite  late last night so not fully with it yet.  

    JOYCE.  Always good to have a plan B.   I’m fine thanks after yesterday’s mauling with the rambler.  A little twinge in the tummy area is all..... and I was over the wall digging more spuds up.  
    HAZEL.   More decorating 😯.   Perhaps you could build an outside loo afterwards. Love Dunelm too.   
    LB.   Enjoy your day with your friend and party planning.  
    SGL.  Hope you have a lovely day with all your Popetts.  It’s fast becoming a ‘plethora of Popetts’ 😊☺️
    TBIRD.   Those are exactly the reasons I took my rose out.   Grows like billyo, few flowers, and snags you every time you look at it.   Good riddance.   
    CHIVE.  Talk it steady for a few days with your neck.  We still think we are indestructible at 27 🥴

    Sorry, can’t remember any more...gone blank.   No sniggering at the back of the class. 🤨

    Afties. SM run done, very busy out today. Noticed  the emergency electric chaps are out digging up the pavement round thand corner, probably to do with power cut last night.

    Came home to find a bl***y hole in our little patch of soil / garden round the holly bush has been excavated and the “ remains”- calling card- of ( I’d guess) a cat grrr! Cannot be doing with that again, we had such trouble at old house( won’t go into it) that couldn’t bear it starting up again here. OH has gone straight out for more gravel and soil edging which he’s going to sort out later today. It just so disheartening after all the hard work you put into a garden and getting plants to grow that this then happens. I know a lot of you here have cats and I don’t mind cats, but I absolutely HATE them doing this in the garden. I admit, it gets me very angry. RANT OVER.

    Looks like it’s going to rain, gone very dark suddenly.

    Joyce, good job done by grass man and now comes the nice part of choosing new plants. 

    Well done Ruby!! You’ve done an incredible job there getting that hydrangea out on your own. You’ve earned a good long rest now to recover and gallons of tea.

    Moved my chair around and sat and weeded and dead headed plants in pots on patio and managed to move some of the smaller pots
    It's hard to believe that the forecast for  tomorrow is pretty dire.

    Just got back from seeing little poppets. Didn't get to go to the swings as it started to rain. But had fun playing indoors. 😍

    Afties all. Its been a beautiful day - like the first post on here said. Had a bit of party planning but started off at my Bestie's daughter's house as we had to wait for the plumber - leaky shower stall. Sorted now.
    Joyce that was a radical decision but you're right, be nice to comb the catalogues for new plants. I love the idea of your armchair gardening
    Well done Ruby for excavating the hydrangea.

    Runners please be careful leaping over the wall to dig up your spuds (Ante - potatoes). The coach for the British Olympic High Jumping team is scouting in your area!
    SGL I'm sorry that rain stopped play for you and the poppets today.
