All that humping sounds quite exhausting TV!

 

The teddy bear now has 2 legs. I won't be able to call her Eileen anymore.

Yes, I've moved 1 tonne of slate, 25kg at a time; 3.5 tonnes of soil by wheelbarrow. Moved 30 rolls of turf each weighing around 25 - 30 kg. I'll be honest - I'm having a 'do nothing' day....  :mornincoffee:

My neighbour has a butternut squash plant growing in her border which probably originated from some seed in her compost bin. It is a lovely healthy plant, but does not have any fruit on it (probably a sterile supermarket hybrid variety). She was most disappointed, but luckily a massive butternut squash has magically appeared on it overnight! :)

Help!

There are a couple of bushes in our communal garden which look a bit like holly, but the leaves are a lighter green

and the berries (just ripened) are purple.

Does anyone know what they are?

:thanks:
