Shabby Chic Anyone?

Posted: 16/07/2014 at 08:14

Lovely dogs; my little one follows me around all day too. She has a great interest in Bumble Bees at the moment which is rather worrying.

FG I once held the door open at Horrids (Harrods) for some people coming in behind me (as one does) and about 6 Japanese business men walked in and completely ignored me. I said v. loudly 'Excuse me but I think you have forgotten something'. They all turned round, very alarmed; 'You have forgotten your MANNERS'. They all looked appropriately ashamed Job done.

Wild garlic seeds help

I have some wild garlic; bought them as young plants, I grow them surrounded by weed suppressing membrane covered in pea shingle as I know they are invasive. The leaves are great in spring salads.
