looks great Terra and your garden still looks lovely to, mine is wind blown and grass is water logged so cant cut it, looking a mess i hate it, should have been a hot indian summer weekend but not, just wind and cool , lovely picture Terra ;o)))

Thanks Sandra...
I hope you get sunshine over coming days to dry your garden :o) x

9 Oct, 2010

 

I agree with Sandra... Terratoonie, I had to stare at your picture for a bit trying to work out when it might have been taken... as my garden looks battered at the moment, probably worse than Sandra's garden, if it was not for those cheerful mums I bought the other day, one would have thought it was January in my garden :(

Thanks Cinders...
This past summer I worked hard on those pavings ...
... scrubbed over 150 ...
... so shouldn't slip on any wet paths during the winter ! :o)

9 Oct, 2010

 

Looking good TT....I remember you scrubbing....should be safe underfoot this winter...just in case...lol !!!

9 Oct, 2010

 

Thank you Alice ...
I seem to have been scrubbing pavings and stones all year ....
... who needs the gym ...
... much more fun to work out in the garden lol. !

9 Oct, 2010

 

That's lovely TT, really like the paving stones too they will set off the rose when it is in full flower next year.

9 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Bob ...
Pavings near the end of my garden are becoming a bit bumpy because there's a huge silver birch next door and its roots push up the slabs ...
... every so often, when a slab shoots up too high, I take it up and chop some roots out !

9 Oct, 2010

 

Your new obelisk looks great, TT, and your paving slabs are dazzling. Now you are an experienced paving slab cleaner, could you please come and clean mine? I have just lifted all mine, filled up the mole runs and then replaced them. It should be a doddle for you as there are only about 40 :) Hope the boys are all OK - Millie sends her love :)

9 Oct, 2010

 

Very nice, your garden is still looking beautiful :-))))

9 Oct, 2010

 

Hi Gee...
Pave-scrubbing tones up the arms ...
prevents bingo wings ...Lol...

40 slabs ... yes, that should be a doddle ...
... love to Millie from C,T and C. x

Annella ... Thank you. :o)

10 Oct, 2010

 

Terra and your garden is looking Fab-UL Lu's.LOL, yes all that hard work has paid off .the new obelisk looks great,even better when your mums rose grows through it next year.I've been very lucky here in Essex weather has been warm and quite sunny,i'm making the most of it,i've been a domestic goddess up early all the boring indoor jobs done LOL ,then all day in the garden ( love it )

10 Oct, 2010

 

Your garden is looking amazing, Tt. The obelisk looks excellent there. :-))

10 Oct, 2010

Your garden is looking great, TT

You have such a beautiful garden!!!!

11 Oct, 2010

 

Sorry I misssed this TT. It often happens.

I think it's lovely, and nice to have it for the rose you inherited from your mother.
I think your garden is beautiful. x

11 Oct, 2010

 

Perfect place for the rose TT..near to the garden bench

11 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Deida...
the bench also belonged to my mother, but I gave it new wooden slats this year ...

Thank you Hywel, Pip, Tog, Yorks, Stroller, Elsiemay, Skillen, David and Nannymargaret ... Lovely sunny days recently ...

11 Oct, 2010

 

I have just come in from trimming back, your garden is so beautiful and I love your new Obilisk;0)

11 Oct, 2010

 

I've planted some bulbs and trimmed bushes ...
nice to have warm sunshine at this time of year .

Thanks, Pansypotter ...
The obelisks I saw in the garden centres were all the wrong size, and not strong enough... then I was at an independent garden centre where, any day, they kindly let me take my dogs inside, for a bit of training ...

... and there it was, staring at me... just the right obelisk... and the only one they had in the store !!! :o)

11 Oct, 2010

 

Marvellous, Tt!!!!!! Sorry to report that weather forecast for here has been totally wrong the past few days. Mist. fog, grey skies making it like twilight all day. :-((( At least it's not raining! :-)))

11 Oct, 2010

 

Hi David...
that's a pity the blue skies deserted you....
... a good thing you have all that gold and silver treasure...
... you can afford to sail away to warmer seas ;o)

11 Oct, 2010

 

That's definitely fate you going to a different garden center and getting just the right obelisk... for you mums roses and you have brought her bench up a treat well done ,the sun as been lovely again to day.in essex

11 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Margaret ...
Yes... fate that the garden centre had just the one lovely obelisk ...
... as if it was standing there waiting for me... :o)

12 Oct, 2010

 

absolutely,

12 Oct, 2010

 

What a beautiful garden you have Tt, and the obelisk is just perfect there, your Mum's rose looks great growing through it.....:o) Is that an evergreen clematis at the back? Armandii? I'm thinking of treating my back wall to one of these.

12 Oct, 2010

 

Hi Janey... thanks...
... I was so pleased to find the obelisk :o)
yes, that is Clematis armandii at the back, on my pergola...

12 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Tt.....I bet it looks a picture in spring.

12 Oct, 2010

 

Lots of pretty white flowers, Janey.
An Armandii would look lovely in your garden. x

12 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Tt....:o))))

12 Oct, 2010

 

Lovely TT!!!!

13 Oct, 2010

 

Thank you Aleyna :o)

13 Oct, 2010

Thank you Marydoll...

I like your avatar photo.. really nice :o)))

13 Oct, 2010

 

It looks lovely Terra,the pink rose goes well with the silver in fact all of it does,.........

13 Oct, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

You have such an incredibly beautiful, manicured garden! Love it!

I wish I could get mine that manicured! : > )

14 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks, Lincslass ...
I can see the rose and obelisk from indoors where I sit at my computer ...

Hi Delonix ...
I hope your baby sausage trees are coping well in Kindergarten ;o)

Thank you for your kind words about my garden.
I've worked hard out there this past summer ... :o)

14 Oct, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

The largest one got a little burned in the recent heat wave. The 108F/ 42.2C temp here was just a little too much heat for it! However, it will recover.

14 Oct, 2010

 

Delonix :
... the little young ones at nursery school should wear sun hats at all times. lol... ;o)

I hope it recovers ... looking forward to pics as they grow :o)

14 Oct, 2010

 

i love your garden terra its lovely. we have had a nice weekend here so hae bin cutting back clearing up a nd moveing stuff .

14 Oct, 2010

 

Thanks Cristina.. You have a lovely garden ..
... and I bet your weekend work has made it look even better. :o)

14 Oct, 2010

 

well ........... lol not really , but i have bought a few more grasses i love them , as fast as clear up theres more to do . still plenty of colour tho

14 Oct, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

You're 100% correct...I should have learned my lesson by now. lol! : >)

I'll definitely be posting pics again. I also will be posting pics soon of the larger sausage trees around...as they all seem to be blooming now. I think it's due to the very crazy weather we've had here this year.

15 Oct, 2010

 

Delonix :

Please send me a quick pm if you think I've missed any sausage tree pics.. There are so many photos on GoY these days, I don't always see them all. Thanks.

Yes, I'm surprised the sausage trees are blooming now. What odd weather you are having out there ...

15 Oct, 2010

 

Beautiful garden and such lovely grass!always so neat and tidy!
ours is awful, has been tramped on, had bird seed dropped on it not to mention a large blue pallet in the middle which was used to put up the greenhouse etc and more work still to be done .... New turf next year I think!
Your silver obelisk is lovely~I think I might need one of those soon as I have climbers that are waving in the breeze...
My clematis Armandii has ramped across the greenhouse roof but is still flowering on and off~ should it be?

15 Oct, 2010

 

Hi Arlene...

Thank you. I'm pleased you like the obelisk !

Not surprising your garden was disturbed by the work for the greenhouse etc. My Armandii only flowers in the springtime, but I have heard of those towards the West of the UK flowering at other times of year as well...

15 Oct, 2010

 

thanks TT like yourself happiest when nursing my dogs! if not out in my garden!

15 Oct, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

I'll do that. :>)

30 Oct, 2010

 

Lovely indeed - I like the pergola and love whatever the plant is growing from it ! Looks very clean and organised

31 Oct, 2010

 

Hi Paul...
Thank you... I'm pleased you like this pic.
The pergola at the back has Clematis armandii....
... some of my earlier GoY photos show the armandii covered in lovely white flowers...

31 Oct, 2010

 

That must be the flower I have then - they are beautiful flowers - I have a pic of ours too

31 Oct, 2010

Hi Shahida.... Thank you ...
no weeds, but there is some clover in the grass !

3 Nov, 2010

 

Looking so delightful TT.

12 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks, Dotty ...
My mother's rose and the obelisk are directly in my view out of the window when I sit at my computer ... so I wanted to get it exactly right ...

... and, now, each time I look down the garden, I'm delighted with the obelisk... I was very lucky to spot it in the corner of the garden centre... just the one obelisk, standing there, waiting for me to buy it .. :o)

13 Nov, 2010

 

Your garden is looking great here.

15 Nov, 2010

 

Hi Chris... many thanks...
nice to see you on GoY again ...
I hope you are well ... :o)))

18 Nov, 2010

 

Hi TT. Yes I am fine. We have had a busy time and poor internet which discouraged me from attempting to upload photo's etc. Now we have a cable connection which seems more reliable. It's nice to be back talking to my GOY friends.

18 Nov, 2010

 

That's good to know you are well...
wow... internet on cable ... !!!
... there'll be no stopping you now ;o) Lol.

18 Nov, 2010

18 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks, David...
I'm pleased you like this photo :o)

I was so delighted to find just the right obelisk for my mother's rose... I had been searching for several months !

18 Dec, 2010

 

YOU DID THE RIGHT THING. BEST WISHES DAVID
