The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



I am so excited my birthday present comes tomorrow, fingers crossed!! A new archway for the garden, we had a metal thing that collapsed after 2 years (it was only cheap though) after much surfing the net and visiting a couple of local garden centres (one which i had to leave as it brought on a Menieres attack!) i have ordered one from Argos (of all places) it has 2 troughs for plants either side so i can put in a clematis or a rose. I have a climbing rose planted one side from the other arch, its looking so healthy at the moment i don’t really want to move it, but shall have to to put archway in, its the wrong time of year i know but needs must so will just have to hope it survives. I have such big plans for this arch I hope its as good as it looks!!
Will post a photo when i get it put up (well when hubby does!!)
Watch this space! :)
Have added a photo of Toffee kissing the Goose this was when we first got him LOL

thanks one and all, Toffee has not disappeared any more thank goodness, he does keep out of Jaspers way though i have noticed if Jasper walks up the garden Toffee jumps through to next doors, i keep booting (not literally!!) Jasper out of the garden but you can't watch 24/7, Toffee is just going to have to sort it out himself LOL!!

Looking forward to seeing photos of your new arch. It sounds great.
I'm glad you haven't had any more scares with Toffee. I couldn't find Blodyn a few nights ago - she'd been gone for many hours. Eventually I heard her crying from inside next door's garage. She'd wandered in and they didn't know she was there when they locked the door. - OH ! the trouble they cause :o0 lol

Awww, poor Blodyn! My Pepsi actually opens doors!! She opened next door's back door one day and slept in one of their bedrooms during the day. I was crying all day, :-(

My son came home and called her and she came in, as if to say, what's all the fuss about??? We found out from some other neighbour's what had happened. Naughty gal!!
