Cool Cool Just to say a quick "Hello" to everyone on this fantastic forum.
I'v been browsing for a few days and really must say, You lads and lasses certainly know your stuff.
Im living on the Mayo Roscommon border and have quite a large garden, im not really in to growing any one thing in particular but would love to learn the magical mystical art of a lovely well presented garden.
I hope to pop up a few pic's but please be gentle with me.
Time is short due to shifts and long working hours. Im not just a lazy devil.
Best regards.
Markus. "Keeper-of-the-keys"

Hi Markus and welcome aboard. You need to speak to Kindred Spirit re how to present a garden as he has done a fantastic job on his in recent years. Check out his thread called 'Redesigned back garden. Would like your suggestions.' for inspiration.

"You lads and lasses certainly know your stuff." As time goes on you will find that the majority here are chancers, charlatans, spoofers and ne'er do wells - myself included. An odd one could be classified as a bullshitter! Time will tell.......

Just to let you know geranimojess I burst out loud laughing reading that.
Of course I wasn't thinking of you in that description at all.

Well you got that much wrong anyway. He won't even let me into his house. Offered to go stay with him for a fortnight for the Sligo experience and unbelievably he said no.

He has been banished from this site several times but keeps coming back under another name but doesn't realise that we recognise the pictures of his garden that he puts up. Plus all the talk about the double c, the 3 am starts, the 9 mile walk twice a day, country and western music, the golden girls and his soul mate Denis.

In short, one to avoid.

Avoid at all costs. .

Nah too slippery a character. Keeps disappearing on 'holidays' to the dark side. Interpol and the CIA combined cannot pin this one down. But I know where he lives, so when the reward his high enough I will cash him in.

Triangulation from mobile phone posts??
It wouldn't work. He still has to ring the operator to make a call on his wind up land line. His computer works on paraffin!
