Verdun, I will have to give your name some thought. It doesn't give much away. Will have to try and work something out from the beautiful photos of your garden. Is there any connection between your name and France or am I totally off course?
Ike overdid it 4 years ago, I'm afraid. Apart from the colours, yes to all. Keep saying, brain still 21.
Used to go for bright colours personally and in the garden, but now go for something more subtle, heather shades being my favourite.
Would only tag 'simply the best' to work, cos I was blooming good and have no qualms about saying so.
