Patti, beautiful gardens!  I love a garden but have black thumb, I can't even keep silk flowers nice.  and allergies get to me so I enjoy from indoors so appreciate anyone who can create such beauty.

MNnancy:
Patti, like Ginny, I'm very curious as to how you are going to pick your berries...

Oh no!!!.  If DH had finished it, he would have had me bending over the open top or crawling on my hands and knees through the ends.  But I stopped his attempt to be helpful.  So the long front and the top fold back to the back fence and can be held there with bungee cords.  The long top, front and back are all sewn together with bailing twine so it can be flipped open. 

DH started the frame on this, and I had to add some cross pieces to the top, so that when the side (front) was raised, the top wouldn't crash through and wipe out the berries. 

My next cage will be better built.  Because I have learned from my mistakes.  But I am sure I will find some new mistakes to make.

MNancy would you like to come and visit me and sort my room out PLEASE!!! I need help! Got a spare room you can stay in. lol

I have been away this weekend. I drove 150 miles north ( nearly to Scotland) for a hen night ( bachelorette party) we went to a place called Alnwick the weather was perfect not a cloud in the sky. We then had a fabulous meal in a tree house!!

I stopped off at the seaside on the way home and also my Dad's house. I hate going there but it is for sale so we need to check it out regularly. The neighbour recently caught 9 rats ( not at the same time) the largest was 15 inches from nose to tail!!! Yuck I hate them I was very noisy when I checked the garden out. He says he thinks they have all gone. The grass is knee high so we have to decide if we are going to sort it out or get someone in. It's a question of cost so DH and I may decide to sort it ourselves.

Still no sewing machine however my new one is coming on Tuesday!! I am very excited. It's a Pfaff Expression 4.2 will need to think of a suitable name. Suggestions gratefully received.

 

Well time for bed.

Hugs to those who need them Xxxx

Patti, do ya suppose you can send me some seeds from your Penstamin? They're gorgious!  Have you tried planting catnip around the borders of your berrie beds. I'm told it deters rodents. Of course, it also spreads like crazy so you minght wanna put it in containers.

Lesley thanks for sharing the picture. What a charming place!

 Since I was last on, I have succeeded in washing one load of laundry, making sandbags for the shop (no- not the kind you use for flood damming. These are used to stabilize fossils while we reconstruct them), mending Jr's PJ's and making 2 drawstring knitting bags form Mrs. BM. Yay! I finally had Sewing time. :D

while I was finishing those projects, Sprout climbed up on a chair to watch and before I could get to him, he took a tumble. He got a bloody nose and a scrap across his ribs, plus a pretty burple bruise for his efforts. 5 minuted later he was back to climbing... He's mastered stairs already! "UP" is very much his idea of where the fun things are, and there's just no keeping him down! He's even got my heartrate 'up'!

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Nice photos. Leslie, I would love to check out that tree house.  Joni, you have beautiful horses, and dog.

CC, I will sent you a selection of several different penstamon seeds this fall.  They should do well in Montana.  You have to plant them in the fall so that they can overwinter in the freezing dirt, otherwise they won't germinate.  We usually put them in little planters and label them.  Often we don't plant them someplace permanent until the second year.

Sorry to hear about Sprout's tumble...my 10 month old grandson climbed from a chair onto the table today...thank goodness we were there to catch him.  He crawled into the recliner the other day (because his big brothers left a toy truck near it) and tumbled over the side.  Thank goodness for carpeting.
