The new thread for 2017.
Because snow was forecast (and has now arrived), I dragged some pots nearer to the house; added some bubblewrap to a couple of pots containing fuchsias Other than that ... nada!
TODAY, I AVE BEEN MOSTLY BURNING ROSE BUSHES
Why would you be burning rose bushes @Zigs ?
That is the burning question of the day, Sheal
There are other ways of staying warm Armandii. I wonder what the Zigs is up too?
I ran out of Arbours and grape vines, had to keep warm somehow
Collected 2 water butts and 2 composers for free off a lovely lady from free cycle. Was also given fleece, capillary matting, plant supports, a galvanised watering can and an electric propagator Was also offered summer and autumn raspberries when she digs them up in March. Well happy!
Good haul Linz
I'm not in work tomorrow so as the weather forecast is for grey, cloudy, dry and mild weather" I'm going to have a "state of the garden" amble around to get good idea of what is, and what is not happening in the garden. I have some 60 Narcissus bulbs to plant, and 6 Perennial Poppies to plant in two blocks of three once I decide where to put them No doubt there will be a pile of jobs that will need to be done as I do the usual tidying up of the borders and paths. Also a sit by the Wildlife pond with a mug of tea will give me chance to see what jobs need doing there.
I'll look out of the window.
Wasn't able to get out into the garden yesterday as we had rain for most of the day so spent time clearing out loft rubbish instead I need to get back out there as we brought a large number of buckets full of leaf mould and compost back from the allotment last week and I managed to get most of the leaf mould/compost spread round the plants in the borders but the last three bucket were far to heavy (compost) for me to carry around the garden with my dodgy knee so me thinks will have to get Mr Kandy to help me. So nice to see the borders looking nice although I am getting a bit fed up of Mr Blackbird throwing leaves all over my lawn as he furrages amongst the leaves looking for worms to eat.I need to get him trained
2 sunny days in a row! Made the most of it-cleared out a load of yuk from around the pond and it stank! Cleared out the smaller pond from leaves and excess weeds. Cleared/weeded the borders and dismantled an old shelving unit housing broken plastic pots-all ready to bin. Checked the lotty and tidied up the greenhouse.
TODAY, I AVE BEEN MOSTLY BURNING OLD SHELVES, PALLETS AND JASMINE BUSHES
Don't tell me you ran out of pergolas and holly bushes
Making mini-landscapes in seven circular troughs. Three out of limestone chunks taken out of a garden and a field. Two out of sandstone flags given to me by a farmer. Two with bog oak bought from the local Farmers' Co-Op. Having difficulty with the second piece of bog oak as it's about five feet high and unwieldy. Will have to collar some unsuspecting passerby to hold it steady at the top while I manoevre stones around it to anchor it. Any of you passing by?
Avatar box reference. First we need to know where your big puddle in the mists of the west is.
Shhhh! Don't tell her She may decide to move there
Sheal, my love, it's another Celtic country where a West Brit resides. County Limerick, Irlanda.
