September 5th

It's raining today - my new plants therefore are happy. Once we have better weather I'll be planting these out. I visited a friend's garden a couple of months ago and was inspired by her use of grasses amongst the dwarf conifers - I have plans.

The patio - the mammoth task of de-weeding took over the entire weekend - got to the stage of actually lifting off the paving slabs to ensure all roots were removed. Again plans for re-sealing with a mixture of sand/cement together with a weed prevention membrane type of thing.

Serious weeding in the far corner of the garden. Amazing lengths of nettle roots pulled out on Sunday - using these in a green solution for plantfood - came across a very interesting article re stinging nettles here

Bev together with the other 2 gals continues to give us regular eggs - treat today of mealworms.

Jon did a wonderful job on cleaning the Rayburn. I think this will be lit today or tomorrow - coal ordered so I think Summer is leaving us, certainly looking at the falling leaves scattered everywhere.

Off to a presentation this afternoon - remember I asked for votes?
Watch this space!

The East Cleveland Scarecrow Festival 2017 was a great success with new villages joining in. I am humbled to be honest and am now referred to as "The Scarecrow Lady!" It could be worse I suppose!

The Scarecrows appeared in Liverton Village - Liverton Mines - Skinningrove - Carlin How - Loftus - Easington - Boosbeck. Guisborough experimented and will join in next year as did Marske by the Sea.
