All its done today is rain but it hasnt stopped me being in the garden , woke up to find the patio flooded so it was time to get on my hands and knees and start lifting the bricks up . once they were up it was time to remove some earth and make some holes and fill with gravel , its seems to have done the trick . After a quick cuppa made by my lovely wife jane and a quick towel down it was back out and up the ladder to attack my climbing rose , after watching monty on gardeners world it was snip snip and tie the rose back . After a lot of blood spilt and a lot of splinters the job was done , after all that i step inside and my lovely wife started the nagging , whoops i had forgot to take my muddy boots off and had left most of the mud on her clean kitchen floor . lucky it was getting dark otherwise i think i could have been in the garage for a long while . I love gardening !!!!!!

Now that's the good thing about being the female gardener - nobody grumbles at me when I muddy up my own newly cleaned floor!

We get flooded on our yard, trouble is our neighbours yard is 3ft higher than us so all their water drains down to us, like Stera I`m the gardener here so if I walk the mud in its my own fault, saying that I do have the added delight of two four-legged friends that very often get banned until they dry off..
Our rain didn`t arrive until it was getting dark so I also had fun in my garden, you can`t beat it Mark...
