Hi because you can't post on long threads this weekend i thought if I was to post a link such as

Then we could refresh this thread like so image

so Good Evening Forkers, today has been interesting but windy and more high winds to come over the next few days. Interesting to feel it is a warm breeze now. Hopefully most of us did better in the weather stakes today.

    As Blackest is being so helpful, I thought I would say goodevening to all.

    Weather was beautiful up until 3, but the the rain came down and is still at it.  Managed to get my pond cleaned without falling in again and sorted the lights out, but 3 not working. image Also managed to make a bit more progress with my last year's project which stopped because if the atrocious weather we had. 

    Next door neighbour putting up new fence, which is very nice, but I am hoping he hasn't trampled down any of my plants as, for some unknown reason, he was in my garden.  Will find out tomorrow.

    Hope everyone else had a good day.

    Good evening all image  well, it's been a complex day posting-wise, (and elderly parent-wise image) but it looks as if we've all survived it - so far image

  • Did intend to use today to test out my new gauntlets by waging war on the brambles, but my blasted ME is playing up, and I've had pain in my hips all day, so only gardening I've done all day is plant up my little plantlets of strawberry 'toscana', a freebie from using my clubcard points.  They really are plantlets, not runners.  Still, will be lovely next year, and has pink flowers, too.

    The only other thing I managed to do was re-pot a blackcurrant from Aldi into a bigger pot.  So most of today curled up on the sofa feeling sorry for myself!  Hoping for good weather tomorrow and my ME to bugger off and let me get on with stuff.  Loads needs to be done, hoping I've got the energy and pain free tomorrow.  Might just take some painkillers and knickers to the consequences!

    Heavy day here. Shoulders ache. Decided to do a bit of last minute tree surgery and took off some Cotoneaster rigida that was over-hanging a Cornus mas and one of those spreading junipers. Didn't break any thing though, me or the shrubs underneath. A long way up for me, not very keen on up. 

    Perhaps a little light weeding tomorrow to recover.

    Evening all. Feel I should bend at the knees and touch my police helmet if I say that...not that I have police helmet.. Thanks to blackest for keeping us 'together' during all the glitches. hopefully all will be fine by Monday.

    Nice  day here until late afternoon when wind got up and rain came on about half 5 ish. Got  lots of bits and pieces done including potting up all the baby sempervivums from an alpine pan and replacing them with the lovely pasque flowers I got last week. Started re organising shed which was a bridge too far really and rain came on when everything was outside so had to keep going.

    Satisfying though.

    Hope you're better tomorrow MMP Take it easy. The brambles will still be there... unfortunately!

    Tina-is it a wildlife pond or a more formal one you have?

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
