You can do bum and tum exercises lying down  Glad it's not broken.

Been removing horrid crab like crawling flies off the poor horses.

Off to weed in veggie garden, it's turning into a jungle.

Large plant needed for balcony, help appreciated!

Brugmansia can grow very big. My son has one, very perfumed, like lemony soap.

I would have suggested canna, but Dave has, so what about a variegated phormium tenax, spiky plant from Australia? They come in reds, greens and golds.

I slipped up yesterday OL, I was a nurse and should have packed you off for an Xray straight away! But sprains often hurt more than breaks. I went shopping with a broken ankle, but son pushed the trolley with me standing on it! We were going on holiday, but Doc gave me a plastic splint so I could go in the sea.

But doesn't Woody open his garden to the public anyway?

Those photos brought back happy memories of our village show when we lived in Kent. I used to enter it and the children did miniature gardens and vegetable animals.

Edd, one is an optical illusion, one is a ventilation vent and the other is an insect hotel.

Visit to the Old Vicarage Gardens, East Ruston, Norfolk. 19/07/14

We went to Christopher Lloyd's garden, Great Dixter, last year in June. It was gorgeous, probably my favourite garden of the perennials sort. http://www.greatdixter.co.uk/  David Austin's is my favourite rose garden. Don't think Great Dixter has roses. It's in Northiam, East Sussex. We have a flat in Eastbourne so it's not too hard for us to visit.

Jacqui, I've sent you a private message via Gardener's World. I don't know if you get email notifications.

Edd, the roof was looked at and the dormer windows and eaves were re-done, but Lily I could really do with a cleaner and weeder! Only trouble is - I can't afford one. 

I was left the house when first husband died, but, under French law at the time, it's shared with my children.
