I miss read your post, thinking you had been to a garden center and bought some weeds. I know you are not a keen gardener, like me, so they could easily sell both of us weeds not proper plants. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/emoticons/default_nono.gif

I always ask for pre-dead plants, saves time in the long run

I'm always in trouble for pulling up the flowers and watering the weeds, a yellow flower is a yellow flower and if it's come from nature, it must be natural.

That pond looks much better now, like a pond rather than undrained flooding or surface water. But is it perhaps too busy? If there were animals in the field drinking from it, would the weeds have grown up so much around the edge?

Not sure, I did stop when I'd done some, but then it looked strange as though it wasn't deep enough but I may pull some bits away once dry to see if it looks better or not. At the moment the field is devoid of Cattle so that's o.k.

I think you were right, I've re done it but with some Cattle Tracks down to the Pond.

From what I remember from my youth there would perhaps be one area where there were no plants and that would be very muddy and extend out into the meadow more where cows etc would have been drinking, how much depended on what livestock was kept in the field. There would also be lilies spreading out across the water. 

Regards Lez.

Thanks Lez, I want to avoid the Lilies etc as it will spoil the reflections of Trains.

Probably couldn't stand the smell from the diesel so boycotted it.

 

I see that you also had a 'purple patch'.

Not seen that Fender Add but loads of RUBBISH ones, I now click on the don't show again, and then IN APPROPRIATE. 

 

I don't mind the Train Shop add, you expect them, but for some reason, I'm getting Ambrose Wilson in the top banner which I've never looked at.:angry::devil:

BTW No, I played Bass with the Silvertones, (note NO ''S'' in the middle), but played Strats with Statergy and the G-Tap Blues Band.:good:

Not much time in TOPS today, but I did find 4 Speed Restriction Signs, I couldn't use the 100MPH one, but the other 3 are fine, I also fitted 4 AWS Ramps, but they will be painted tomorrow after a visit to the Solicitors.

Just played about with the colours on this image as it was very Blue / Purple, it's much better now I think.

Like SMS in the 7mm section, this mornings pic focuses on a Duff, this one coming through New Mills Station.
