Well you all seem to have been very busy despite the weather! We had a lovely day yesterday, grass was cut before our visitors arrived, but it was pretty darn cool once the sun went in.... enjoyed talking gardens, rather than doing anything yesterday, and pinching all my sis-in-law's good ideas! Me and my brother are trying to figure out how to keep an annoying woodpigeon, along with a cheeky squirrel, away from our feeders - so we are searching the internet for ideas.... hubby who took early retirement last year is at home in between golfing/cricket umpiring/exam invigilation (!) is fast losing his sanity trying to shoo them away! Think the clear dome baffles look the best but we are sorting through the options!
Sadly I am a weekend/fine weather gardener, as I work full time in Manchester but still get a chance to sit on the terrace/patio of an evening when hubby has the tea ready - last year was so different, lovely warm evenings, we were always eating out, we have probably eaten out three times since April this year!
Am sat with my back to the patio doors, and the reflection in my laptop shows the trees swaying madly in the breezw- no rain today here in Cheshire, but boy it has been cold. Have checked my plug plants and other pots etc, and hope to have a better look tomorrow, weather permitting. This weekend I will be at the Gardeners World exhibition at Birmingham on Saturday, so will be enjoying other people's ideas and sampling the Pimms instead of working hard to catch up with you all in the garden!
Must get working on Sunday to catch up with you all! Am looking forward to hearing how you are all getting on!
