Argh, mine are in lockdown as neighbour is doing a lovely new feather board fence which runs right behind the enclosures. Easier for all if no torts about for fear of a dropped hammer, etc...
I have completely overhauled the garden (got through three pairs of garden gloves and have shredded hands, swollen finger joints and scratches and grazes galore to show for it) but weeded the weed patch of any inedibles and have transplanted plantain, cats ear and sowthistle for them from all over the paths and front, back and side garden areas, which have taken well. So theyíre eating well at least...

I'm going for a low maintenance area at the moment as we're not getting any younger.
Have pulled out and trimmed back a fair amount and will be having some granite chippings going down. A tonne is due for delivery today and then we'll see how much more we need but I wouldn't be surprised if it'll be another tonne. Going for a zen feel to it with large pebbles, a water garden, a nice new Thai Buddha and windchime, etc.
I am pleased with the garden but I can always find more to do and we've been discussing emptying the tort enclosures in the autumn to pull them forward and planting some half standard evergreen trees behind, then getting the soil and planting back in. Quite a job if we decide to do it though.

Well, I had to google and so it seems! I didnít realise they were going to be doing Vikings:Valhalla either, but sounds good, especially the build up to 1066. Love history dramas, the further back the better.
Been watching Floki as Merlin in Cursed. Isnít working for me. He is Floki. Only Floki.

Idiots on beaches!
Too many people - much prefer animals!
Only left the house twice since lockdown started in March and loving it. Have seen my kids and their partners and no one else (hubby obviously). Perfect!
I am going to remain a hermit.

Agree with the above. They are designed to soak up the sun, they do feel warm even if the sun is partially out.
