The farmer has altered the lights and will be switching them on tonight at 10pm they will be warmed up by 10.30! I don't think it will be dark enough plus will we get a true reflection of what it will look like in winter with all the leaves on the trees! I'm really not sure what to do?
Interestingly enough I spoke to the guy at the planning office and he obviously didn't say in so many words but I got a strong feeling he was not keen on these lights!!
MMMmmmmmm, we will see.
I am so tee'd off with the rain now. The grass is about 8 inches long,
which is going to be difficult to cut as we no longer own a motor mower, the lawn has got so small that we got ourselves a push mower, which is brilliant, except when the grass gets long!!!
I can't dig, or weed cos the ground is too soggy. I need to get the greenhouse up as the coal is being delivered on the 8th August and at the moment no one can get anywhere near the bunkers!!!
So what else is going on down the soggy garden????
Things are growing.......
Flower beds are blooming......
Look at the state of the tomaotes? I haven't the foggiest why they are so leggy!!!!
Peppers are growing...
These are the second lot of Brugmansia cuttings I've taken, some are looking a bit sad, I think its becuase of the extremes of heat and cool. When the clouds clear its steaming then they come back and its flippin cold!!!!!
These are the first 2 cuttings I took.....
I took two cuttings that are doing really well!
Now for some experimentation, I have a number of elephants ears (Alocasia's) around the garden and I have been told if I pot them up in shingle they will grow in the pond and reduce the nitrate levels so here goes.....
Now lets see how long it lasts!!!!
Have a great weekend!
