Hey Sue, I was just posting a message for Trisha on her page and saw a picture of your garden. How beautiful! I can see Neil's been spending a lot of time helping you with all those plants and it's just spectacular. Just had to compliment you on it, I know it's a lot of hard work to get those kinds of results. Have a great day! Hugs, Maggie
Hello dear Sue ,
Thank you for your kind words, it was quite impressive, goosebumps and many people were silent during the minute silence ... 40 funeral cars behind each other on the road and many people who were there, it was terrible, but what can a small country are large !
I'm still sad but it just ended Have a good evening sweetie , Love and hugs , Gerry xxx
Hi Sue, Thanks for the message and the lovely pic. I have had a good birthday so far. It was a peaceful morning of Neil music followed by a visit from my son and his fiancée back from Cyprus. They did stay in Paphos which you mentioned, and they loved it and are as brown as berries...Bert the crazy dachshound was here too!! Now..peace has returned again...
I hope you are feeling ok today. Its very true that we value each other on this site and it hurts to lose our Alyce, she was one of the first people I had contact with when I first came to SC, and I thought she would always be around for as long as the site was. Now I feel we must stick together, bonded by our love of ND, and always remember her, the person she was and her love of Neil..
Hi Sue. Thank you for thinking of me on a sad day for SC. I will enjoy my birthday and I have a few days off work too, so I will be relaxing. Hope you are doing ok, I do value your friendship on this site. When something sad happens it proves how we all feel for one another doesn't it?
Hi Sue, thanks for the lovely pic of your bungalow and garden. It's nicer than my garden which is more basic, but I am happy with mine as I wanted a low maintenance one, and because it was such a tip for a long time. We are very lucky to have gardens, and now finally I can sit out in mine without feeling depressed! I need a nice set of garden table and chairs for the patio, but that will have to wait for a bit! I have attached some photos. You will see that I now have a few shrubs and mostly mulch, some yellow edging round the beds which was done last year, and this year's job was replacing the old grey weed festooned paving with new yellow paving. I wont tell you how much it cost, it will make my eyes water!
You may notice the ant powder round the conservatory... I had a right shock when I went in there with my mug of tea expecting a nice relaxing read, it was crawling with insects!! I panicked and emptied a carton of ant powder in there. The next day the gardeners said when they took up the paving they disturbed a massive ants nest. Most of the insects were flying ants. I dont know how they got thru the concrete floor of the conservatory! Luckily they have gone from there but are still on the outside.
Its such sad news about Alyce, to be honest when I first saw Melissa's post I wondered if it was another hoax after Gloria, but sadly it is true.
Gald to hear you had such a good time in London, although the weather was n't that good, at this moment it's pouring cats and dogs, but we had some real hot days the last couple of days, but boy what a humidity..pffff! Tomorrow the sun will be back again, hopefully not as hot and humid anymore.

Hi Sue, I have finally had the garden finished, and now for the first time since I have been in the house I have a garden to be proud of! The original gardener was a cowboy and laid the paving slabs very badly so I had them replaced. Annoying as it was expensive, and if only he had done a good job I neednt have had it done. The gardeners said that there was no grit underneath or grouting which there should have been. The new paving looks very nice, it is a yellow colour which matches the border edging. But they are only half the thickness of the original slabs, everything is made smaller and to a lesser standard as time goes on, even paving slabs! The gardeners said I couldnt park a car on them, they are not strong enough, fortunately I dont have one! So paving slabs like so many other modern things are no longer fit for purpose!
I can now, when I get the money!, put a table and chairs on the patio area, I didnt want to before as the view was so depressing!
I hope you are enjoying your garden in this lovely weather!
