A very useful 'tool'

Look what OH surprised me with today! I am so pleased. Now I can listen to classic FM while I’m chopping up all that hedge waste! It’s digital, wind up/solar powered, with a torch and a bottle opener (are we now thinking it is rather aimed at the gardening men?) for my beer…..oh, wait, I don’t drink beer….but OH does! Lol!

I don't have one line this but always have my radio on in the garden, you can't beat a bit of gardening listening to some of the odd balls phoning Jeremy Vine ;)
I'm sure you can share with Scott, occasionally!

Its beyond me why anyone would want noise in a garden.
If I wear my hearing aids I can hear the birds, a great joy to one who has been deaf for years.
At playtime I hear the children over in the new school playground shouting and laughing with the great joy of
living.
All part of gardening.

I like a radio in the gh, especially for tedious pricking out jobs!

I can hear the birds now Diane, the sparrows are squabbling over the bird feeders!

I mostly prefer silence also Diane, but occasionally, when the mood takes me, especially if there is a lot of traffic on the road, I enjoy some good music, which is not noise to me, but soul food. Variety is the spice of life!

Very handy karen... great present..

21 Mar, 2014

 

I have mp3 headphones, on which are my faourtire classical pieces, so that I can enjoy "Morning" from Peer Gynt, for eg, when I'm actually looking at the morning sky - lol alwqys lived in close proximity to others before, so didn't want to inflict my choice of music on them!
