Giving up my garden


Hi all
I have given up some of my garden so we can cool off this summer, not had the pool out for over 2 years. I will have to recover the lawn after. It took 10 hours to fill and costs about £35 from our calculations. Let’s hope we continue with the weather now I have sacrificed my lawn.

Things are looking good in the greenhouse

Not be long now ….yummy

Hi Mrs M £35 for water sounds quite cheap for the hours of fun you will get.

Wow, that looks brilliant - can I send my 11 year old daughter round to yours?

Nice pool. If you connect your washer pipe to it you could turn it into a hot tub! I have heard of people doing that. Might cost a bit more than £35 though. Your toms are looking good. Mine arn't as advanced as that yet (outside in hanging baskets) even with all the nice weather we've had in Lancs they are still taking their time.

Had a lovely session in the pool this evening 7:45, it's so nice after my 2 mile bike ride home from work...
Worked out need to have 12 sessions in the pool to make it cheaper than the swimming baths ...I'm sure that will not be hard to achieve if the temps are set to rise. OH made a lovely curry for tea and we had fresh strawberries ...I love the summer
