17 Apr, 2010

 

I cleaned out my shed a few weeks ago Sandra but things are starting to creep back in (mostly my things...lol)
I need to blast our decking too with the pressure washer - last time I used it- it wasn't working too well tho'. Look after your back -we only have one each! :-)

17 Apr, 2010

 

lol richard your right there,,,i had to put some patio cleaner on also as it gets mildue and awfull to clear, but think i cracked it, just needs new stain now, also put wood oil on my bistro set so that looks like new again ;o)

17 Apr, 2010

 

You will soon be dining out with your bistro set in the garden Sandra with nice views of your pond. They say that we are going to have a long hot summer I would like this so much for a change. We have to go though 'arctic conditions' next week? tho'. by all accounts. :-)

17 Apr, 2010

 

dont say that richard, what about all our plants that are showing,, will they die ;o((

17 Apr, 2010

 

Hope not Sandra -have you heard of this on the weather news for next week?

17 Apr, 2010

 

not looked yet richard, i dare not cause i will be so upset lol

17 Apr, 2010

 

I think I agree in this case Sandra I so hope they are wrong with this!!

17 Apr, 2010

 

just looked and seems ok but can go to about 4c in night but sun and part cloud till next weekend then some rain and a bit warmer again, so not to bad richard, wont need the thermals lol

17 Apr, 2010

 

That's great then Sandra -they must have changed the forcast. At least no more volcanic ash ! :-)

17 Apr, 2010

 

not sure about that one richard, just been reading up on air flights as my son stuck in athens with college trip, should have been home today, i cant get him on his mobile because of network problems, its a nightmare, i know he is with teachers but im still worried about him, ive transfered some money to his account so at least he can buy food, no signs of it changing they say till wind changes direction, funny how we want lovely weather but now im wishing it would get a bit windy to change this situation ;o(

18 Apr, 2010

 

I am sure that your son will be OK Sandra and will get home when the planes start to fly again. At least he has plenty of company-if he anything like I was at that age he is probably enjoying the extra time that he has in Athens.
Please keep us posted on his progress if you can :-)

18 Apr, 2010

 

hi richard its in a blog now, they are flying to spain tomorrow hopefully then road trip back here by coach for 20 hours aprox, unless i hear anything else ;o)

18 Apr, 2010

 

Well I am glad it seems to be sorted for you now Sandra :-)

18 Apr, 2010

 

cheers richard ;o)

18 Apr, 2010

 

I like your fairy Sanbaz....I would love some for my garden. I collect little ones for the house. New collection for the garden hee hee hee. :o)

15 Oct, 2010

 

thanx Alex glad you like my fairy, they do look lovely in the garden dont they, look forward to seeing yours when you get them ;o)) lol

15 Oct, 2010

 

It's a bit too heavy on the hardscape surrounding your pond and seems to be out of proportion to the ponds diameter. Actually it has the appearance of a meteorite crater. I would suggest that you remove some areas of the egg rock and place some plantings into those pockets for a more natural look.

18 Sep, 2011

 

dont think i like you tone and i had just made the pond actually and now its alot different with alot of planting,so please be carefull with your comments.
also i love my pond but unfortunatly dont like you.

19 Sep, 2011

 

Well said San, flipping cheek!! who asked them anyway? notice they have not written anything about themselves, always suspicious!!

19 Sep, 2011

 

thanx for your surport dotty, its very suspicious i agree.must not have anything better to do in their lives.

19 Sep, 2011

 

I agree with Dottydaisy's comment. I think it looks great and I also think if you've nothing nice to say about something, then don't say anything at all! Cheek.

19 Sep, 2011

 

thankyou sheila :o)

19 Sep, 2011

 

I, too have had a look at his profile (the nosy bint I am!) and there's nothing there. Maybe he's the invisible man!lol

19 Sep, 2011

 

lol sheila, cowards are invisible haha

19 Sep, 2011

 

;o)

just seen this through pond ideas - what a grand job Sandra - I am a big fan of cobbles and rocks and great how the slate is running down . When my waterfall packed in I turned it into a rockery type thing and slate for a frog's home - is your fountain solar powered or electric - I'd love one of these

1 Dec, 2011

 

hi paul thankyou, i enjoyed making the pond, but next year im going to see what i can do to keep it more clear, though the pump and filter should do that, and of course i got the barley straw this year,maybe i will take out the baskets as the plants arent doing to well, it may help, didnt realise it was such hard work keeping a pond lol
the pump i have is electric but they dont use alot of power, its called easy clear i think, come in 3 different sizes, mine is middle size which alows the waterfall as well as fountain,
as for frog home iv used a spare ridge tile left over from the porch roof, its ideal as a home for frogs, casper cant get into it and its thick enough for warmth with leaves in.
your pond is lovely paul, you have done a great job ;o)

1 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks Sandra on info and nice comment back - it is a good deal of work keeping a pond :D I empty half out and climb in with wellies and chat to the fish lol - then fish the fish out into bath and hoover the algae and all out - no filter now :(

1 Dec, 2011

 

i have to clean out by hand, which is messy, it doesnt bother me doing it but it grows back so quick, gets between the stones which is hard to shift, but im keeping the pond, just have to deal with it lol :o)

1 Dec, 2011

 

Yes I am afraid I had no choice but to put pond in sunny hot spot in my garden and it is just bound to attract loads of algae - maybe a winter of rain water to reduce it - says tap water goes greener faster anyway :)))))))))))

1 Dec, 2011

 

fingers crossed paul, i havent had to top mine this year as plenty of rain here this year lol, i will give it another good clean in spring before summer starts to :o))
