Oh, TT, yes please! I have just spent 2 hours clearing the leaves from my garden, behind the greenhouse, around all the plants. It's too wet to use the garden vac (and its heavy!) so some help would be lovely - perhaps Millie could become an apprentice too - she certainly needs some expert trainng :)

Hi Gee ...
Millie is very welcome to join the team as an assistant ... ... is she able, please, to bring along her own broom and bucket ... and possibly some Bonios ? :o)

20 Nov, 2014

 

I suggested this idea to Millie and she has just turned over in 'her' chair and hidden her head under the cushion! I think the answer is 'not even for bonios' :)

20 Nov, 2014

 

Well done Conker and Truffle :o)
Please can I book Team Terra to clear the leaves in my garden ?
I think I'd better book them for a few days - there are so many leaves there,
and I hope they won't be too exhausted afterwards ...
but there'll be PLENTY of Bonios supplied by Bella, for them to enjoy :o))))) x

20 Nov, 2014

 

Millie ... we know where you are ;o)

Thank you Hywel ...
Bella will be especially useful if she is able to climb on your trellises to look down and direct operations :o))) x

20 Nov, 2014

 

lol Maybe she'd do it for Conker and Truffle :o) x
I just asked her, and she said "MEAOW !" :D

20 Nov, 2014

 

Perhaps you could get Truffle and Conker to Essex for 9.30 in the morning please, Tt as I am doing one of my customer's gardens and they have huge Elms lining the pavement outside so I will have my work cut out. Just a little tip for your leaf clearers.........after sweeping, I always run the mower over to clear up the little bits I left with the broom.Blade high, of course!

20 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Paul ... yes, I had the mower out today !
Good luck with the elms ! Truffle and Conker are checking their appointment diaries.

20 Nov, 2014

 

People complain 'You can't get the staff!'

Terra, I think you can!!
:-)

20 Nov, 2014

 

Oh please Terra. may I make a booking? I have a large bag of Bonios waiting. I can also supply a cuppa and a slice of chocolate cake for the Boss.

20 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Tt, I thought I wasn't going to be able to book your services, and then you said lawns were a speciality, which is where the majority of the leaves are, not my leaves though, they're from trees growing down 1 side of my garden the other side of the fence, my leaves get blown into next doors jungle, so never get picked up, Derek.

20 Nov, 2014

 

Lol. Chris ...
The 'staff' really enjoyed the photo shoot !

Hi Julia ..
Mmmm ..big bag of Bonios ? ... Chocolate cake with a cuppa ? ... we're on our way !

20 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Derek ..
Most of the leaves my team sweep off our lawns are from neighbour's gardens ... Silver Birch etc ...
... mowing my lawns today helped quite a lot !

20 Nov, 2014

 

Oh dear, wish I'd known earlier. Most of ours are swept already. Can you take advance bookings for next year? We will need them in late spring when the sycamore flowers have fallen off everywhere and again a few weeks later when lots of immature seed pods fall.

20 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Stera ... we've just purchased a 2015 diary, so, yes, we're ready for next year's bookings :o)

Put me down on your list please please TT they are doing such a good job ,the only problem is we have so many leaves they may have to stay until the new year , will you manage without them for that long ? you could come to visit them at weekends :o))

20 Nov, 2014

 

Adorable dogs. I love them. I am sure they would do better job than our Mexican gardener. Can they fly to Mexico?

20 Nov, 2014

 

Your clever boys are going to be so busy with everyone's leaves, I daren't ask if they also tackle pine needles, my terrace is thick with golden needles at present but I'd willing double the Bonio rate if they do :o)

20 Nov, 2014

 

Thanks Amy ...
Sorry, I can't manage without my team for that long ... I'd have to bring my sleeping bag to your home, and come along with Crocus budgie ... hoping you have room for us all to stay, please ? ;o)

Hi Klahanie ... thank you ...
Team Terra would enjoy the challenge of a Mexican garden ... could you please provide my dogs with Mexican hats ? :o)

Thank you Neena ...
My very first garden picture on GoY (over 6 years ago !) is of Conker vacuuming the grass, so he has volunteered to give the same treatment to your pine needles :o)

LOL if your team can do the work TT we will make room for you all x

21 Nov, 2014

 

Right, I'll put the kettle on lol!

21 Nov, 2014

 

Send them round to my Mums please Terra ... she has lots of Sycamore leaves from the trees opposite her front garden! The boys could have a walk along the beach later ... :o)

21 Nov, 2014

Hi Julia ..
Conker knows how to stack up the dishes after our cups of tea ... very tidy !

Hello Shirley ..
Yes, we can tackle tasks in the South ... nothing like a few enjoyable days in sunny Sussex ;o)
... please tell your Mum that Truffle has already packed his suitcase !

Thanks Pam for the amazing illustrations !

I loved the paws Terra xxx such fun 🐢

21 Nov, 2014

 

your team did a good job out there Terra..:-)

21 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Sandra ... I'm pleased you approve :o)

21 Nov, 2014

 

you could send them over to mine to show my lot how to earn their keep..lol

21 Nov, 2014

 

Thank you Conker Vacuuming will be fine see you later - I wish :o)

22 Nov, 2014

 

Desperately needed here Terra, I've tried bribery with my boys but no luck, I even tried shaming them into it by showing them the pics of Team Terra hard at work but that didn't work either, Morgan went to his bed and flopped at just the thought of going outside let alone earning a treat and Brynner said he still prefers pruning to leaf clearance, lol....

22 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Sue ..
Maybe Morgan and Brynner would be good with a leaf blower ?
... but they might need some training/bribery to blow the leaves in the right direction.. Lol... ;o)

22 Nov, 2014

 

Pam, what are all those little squares you put in? I've seen them on here before and never know what they are. Something to do with an ipad?

22 Nov, 2014

 

Stera ..
you should be able to see the 'squares' as pictures ... leaves, pawprints etc. Maybe send Pam a message and she will explain it ...

22 Nov, 2014

 

well done! ws on the news a few days ago, some London councils think it's more cost-effective to get people to pick the leaves, one at a time, off the trees before they fall. dunno how they worked that one out!

22 Nov, 2014

 

Thanks Fran ...
I guess that idea might work picking off very large leaves from low trees ...
...but not very practical for a sky high silver birch in a neighbour's garden !

22 Nov, 2014

 

Oh Terra......this really made me laugh. What a pair! Excellent work.

22 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Linda ... glad you like the blog ...
Gardening would be difficult without my helpers !

22 Nov, 2014

 

Great blog and photo's Terra..most of our leaves are swept up ..NOW.you tell me! still lots in next doors though,from a birch also..if Conker and Truffle fancy a trip to Yorkshire..? Surely they will be fed up of Bonio's by now...Any other tempting offers they would enjoy,for a change? :o)

23 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Sandra ...
thank you ... today's breezes have blown yet another million leaves from next door's birch, so Conker and Truffle have a busy time ahead...
I asked what goodies would tempt them to Yorkshire and they said a warm fire, a hot bath, cheese flavoured nylon bones to grind on, and some milky bics. :o) x

23 Nov, 2014

 

The warmth of a fire,and nibbles are no problem..No bath I'm afraid..would a gentle shower do? :o) x

23 Nov, 2014

 

that dog would be too big to fit on my balcony

24 Nov, 2014

 

:)

24 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Sandra ..
dogs can bring their own plastic bath :o) x

Hello Wildlifebalcony ...
My dogs can work in small spaces, and they'd be happy to bring their brushes and brooms to your balcony ! :o)

24 Nov, 2014

 

There are moments when I wish someone could pick up the leaves from my balcony as well! We have a few Elms across the road & a few Sycamores a little way down the road from us so when the wind gets up I find lots in the balcony. As they've all - well, almost all, finished for this year it's too late to ask you for their services but perhaps next year? :-))

28 Nov, 2014

 

Hi Balcony..
thank you ... Team Terra has already started filling the 2015 diary and your balcony is now booked in for next year ;o)

29 Nov, 2014

 

Great photos , Hello Conker and Truffles, Both are truly amazing , Hugsss to both :-)))

30 Nov, 2014

 

Thanks Junna ... Conker and Truffle send hugs to you :o)))
