Is anyone else getting very frustrated at not being able to get out into the garden due to this constant rain?

I've got bedding out plants sitting in my garage waiting to be planted out, my lawn is growing before my very eyes thanks to all the rain and badly needs a mow now, my pansies and petunias all need deadheading (same reason as lawn) and my roses and peonies all need staking due to the constant rain beating down on them.

Are you watching the rain from the comfort of your home and wishing you could get out there and get gardening again?
Here is a photo of one of my peonies before the rain started.

I never get frustrated when I can't get in the garden but if anyone has hints on how to eradicate my back garden bramble problem I am listening.Forever chopping it and weed killer has no effect.

Borrow or get yourself a goat, excellent for controlling woody weeds, even being used in NYC now to control weeds in Central Park. Just watch out for your other plants, they're none to fussy about what they eat.

Think there is only one solution , and that is you have to dig it up, get the roots out, not the easiest of jobs

We had a similar problem SFA. ,,,you have to find where the roots of tbe bramble started ,and dig them out .
We left the area open for awhile ,,in case it returned. .
