      Actually doing some proper gardening today,haven`t felt like it before barely ticking over.:sad:
      So got the scorpio electric saw out ,demolished rampant cotoneaster ,and fuchsia,taken cuttings from both to plant down outside of fence :snork: ,planted some crocosmia that some one gave me down fence as I already have some,threw out some trays of soil from failed seeds,:cry3: walked to P.O. and found beautiful discarded double fuchsia in hedge ,still with soil attached so potted and having a long drink.:coffee:
      Fixed Clematis spiral better in ground ,it was quite tipsy and clematis not doing well either.:th scifD36:.
      So had a cool off :phew: back to the fray, might cut down other side while scorpio out of box :whistle:
      Also noted while walking to P.O. blackberries really heavily laden ,if weather keeps up will be picking next week,its a cycle path so no car fumes just don`t pick the low ones as dogs water them, :doggiesmz:

        Watering and weeding today.....the watering seems to be a never ending job, especially with our temperatures here.

                Only jobs I've been doing lately is watering and gentle tending. Otherwise strictly enjoying the garden and eating outdoors often, reading in a nice shady nook, and cracking the odd bottle of champers. Banging.

                  Or.....sweating like Pavarotti in a cake shop :whistle:

                  I can`t believe after all the rain we`ve had up here, I`ll still have to go out and water my Dahlias and other tubs shortly.
                  I planted some bedding stuff in the border yesterday and it was like mud :dunno:

                    Today I've started building something for our 2 boys. Last week we bought them a kiddie sized bench for 'their corner' (half price from B&M :dbgrtmb: ), given the amount of sun this week I thought I'd knock up some shade/shelter for them, all I've spent is £3 on on some reed for the roof, all the wood and fittings I already had. This is it so far, just want to put some trellis sides on it I think and give it a lick of wood preserver;
