I missed GW last week as was away then this week it's cancelled because of Snooker 

I think it should be longer with more detail in each item. Although I've been gardening for over 40 years I still like seeing beginners getting help in starting and I like visiting other people's gardens. I wish they could show ordinary gardens as well as big ones open to the public. There was a programme about gardens open for the National Gardens Scheme, I really enjoyed that.

I like Nigel, I have a Nigel, except he's a border collie. If the programme were longer a few glimpses of Nigel couldn't bother anyone.

I find Monty a bit dull sometimes and his garden is a wealthy person's garden, but I don't dislike him. I loved Geoff H and have a crush on Chris B , I think Alan T is fun, liked Charlie D - she was fun too. In fact I like all of them, even Carol K's over enthusiasm. Some find Rachel too upper classy but I think she's beautiful and she likes roses, my favourite. There's just not enough of gardening on TV.

ID please

Yes, aubretia. It seeds itself in my stone terrace and walls. I love it.

Well done fidget. I hate the way lorry drivers hog the lanes, taking ages to overtake.

It sounds funny, if it weren't so serious.

Just rewired another section of fence, but it's raining and I'm going out to lunch.

Morning all. Overslept. Wonder why! Specially as here it is one hour ahead.

My carrots didn't germinate  Must re sow.

OH has an all day choir practice today. Cooking some chicken for the bring and share lunch. Should have done it yesterday, but thought it was next week. Can't believe it's May already. I haven't even weeded each flower bed yet. Potatoes need earthing up, broad beans need weeding. Good thing I'm retired but body works more slowly than it used to.

Hope headache goes quickly, Lily.
