I have a very good friend, who is always with me when I'm in the garden. He is fascinated by everything I do, whether it's planting out, sowing seed, tidying up or even sweeping the patio. I chat to him as I work and he never disagrees with my gardening theories or try's to offer advice. If I have a raging success with a project or create a horticultural catastrophe, he views them exactly the same. If I decided to dig up a bed of herbacious perenials and replace it with a bed of nettles he would think that was the right thing to do. In short he is the perfect gardening buddy.
He is my six year old Chocolate Labrador. Does anyone else have a buddy in the garden?
