Boooo Hooooo


I decided yesterday to take some pictures on my phone, and post you pictures of my gorgeous dahlias, particularly Kelvin Floodlight and Park Princess. BUT I got up this morning, and someone has cut them all and taken them. One just likes giving up. My teddy bear, had chewing gum all over him, and in the spring my beautiful Iris, was stolen. shall I put up a pretend camera, cant afford a real one. its not as if I live in a bad area. Oh well, next year, I will sleep out there lol

The incident with your Teddy Bear suggests that it's not a budding entrepreneur flogging them at a boot sale. CCTV is expensive but a simple PIR wired up to either a recording of a shotgun going off or an Alsatian may work!! Or perhaps wired to an internal buzzer to alert you of intruders.

We live on a small estate only 40 houses, the side of my house is by the no thro road, I have a 6 ft wall around my garden, but the side of my house has a piece of ground about 19 ft by ten, which I planted up as my new cottage garden, this bit has only a picket fence, which the buggers can lean over. I planted some wonderful chrysanths, at the mo they are still there!! did you see Kelvin floodlight, on my home page, isnt he lovely. thanks for your comments tho. x
