Sorry for the lack of punctuation in the list of plants - they were a proper up and down list before I posted!

Hi BK 

My sister has a flat in Manchester and has a fab balcony that faces South, and is on the second floor. She grows the following: 

Acer Azalea (snow hill), Wild flowers (grown from seed bombs), Rosemary, Those little white ones you might remember the name ofDwarf pear tree Dwarf peach tree Blueberry bush (blueberry blue gold) Mint Fushia Freesia  Lots of ivy She had spring bulbs in the wooden planter, but next year is going to try growing peas.   And here are some pics she let me put on here:

Hope these help and give you some inspiration

I was pleased with Scott going, although I did enjoy his dance 

Agree Alison is starting to disappoint. As someone with a somewhat fuller figure, I'm disappointed she doesn't seem to make more of an effort with her feet.  Looking like she's picking them up for a start might help.

Lol KEF  I model myself on Craig, he's so fab u lous

Morning all 

Day one of not having to go to work today and I get woken up by the man who gives me a lift and has clearly forgotten I'm on holiday

I found it all quite tedious last night, it felt like the costumes took away from the dances for me.
