Nice work, I need some time/ motivation to get out and do mine. I bet you have used that slide more than the little'uns!

The fella that posted the comment is a regular poster on facebook HT, so I would imagine that he is a member or at least peruses this site. Unfortunately the world is full of idiots and the internet brings the idiots closer.

Coming along nice FF icon_thumleft

Great how you used the sleepers/Gravel on the steps.

I do like Decked areas in a garden, Especially exotic gardening... I'm thinking of re-designing my patio area and adding decking or biulding a decked area near the back of my rear garden later this year.......

Great stuff icon_thumleft icon_salut
Happy gardening,
Gray

Great FF, very impressive and imaginative use of space, you must be a great dad too putting the slide in for them. Once all planted up it will look superb, such a difference from how it was before. icon_thumleft

thank you, yes the slide isnt the best looking garden addition, but the back garden is the family garden after all- mines out front

It all looks very colourful. A lot of hard work must have gone into it.

How do you get into the greenhouse :lol:

Brilliant, just brilliant, I love it all, great design and planting, its not easy to intergrate kids stuff into gardening but you done it and it looks great, buckets, spades and gravel are good fun and easily swept back into place :mrgreen: love your front garden as well, you have worked hard and it shows icon_thumleft sit for a while and enjoy this fab weather, if thats even possible for a gardener :D

You can stop him from posting F.F

Make sure no one reg unless its oked by you.

I strip out comment.php in the backend of the dashbord. Make sure any changes you make in admin is copied to notepad then if you cockup you just paste it back.

An exceedingly nice job there F.F...enjoy the beer.... :lol:

Great pics, your garden looks superb and totally unaffected by the cold spring.

Love that pic of the Alliums ;)
Once upon a time there were 3 little bears. Now there's thousands of them.

I love those tall Alliums too, mine are setting seed at this time,

Only two this year but there will be more next season, I believe they were some seed given to me last year.

Looks like you have loads of plants in pots growing too F.F.
