Fushia cops it

I took drastic action today with the old fushia bush. It hadn't had a haircut in years. So much deadwood too. Looks like I will have young plants too as the cuttings I took last oct are budding out now do there may be a surplus later.

Spotted this early (lady)bird today. She seemed a little shy or maybe unsure, after all its March and suddenly the sun is shining brightly?

She eventually came out fully and began basking on the Polymonium.

Welcome 2014


Wendy House ?

I finally got around to errecting the very expensive Aldi House today. Warning do not attempt to place the plastic on frame if theres even a puff of air. I very nearly went "hot air ballooning" in the effort to tie it down. Mind you the help was non existant at the time. It does say on instructions "two persons" one hammer etc etc.

I wonder will I get one growing season from it? I eventually will end up with a tunnel / glasshouse (hint birthday/Christmas) ahem!

Its tied down, pegged down and sandbagged down but I hope it doesnt get tested this week or the next.

I sat in it today taking a phone call and honestly it felt like heaven. Almost too good to go back to stocking it up afterwards. ha ha.

My facebook friends have called it a "wendy house" but "stick & stones etc to them.

Remember I had some damage to a kitchen roof recently. Well as it happens this room housed the hotwater cistern and is directly over my kitchen. It used to be dark as it had no window! Now its been converted into my new "window sill & propagating Room"

who needs sliderobes anyhow?

I wonder will it be too warm for these seedlings? Guess I will find out shortly, any ideas folks............



Missed you all..............
