HELLO FORKERS!

Ggirl - our talk was by someone called Sue - the "yellow" story is obviously a Hillier favourite 

RoseM - we have used checkatrade quite successfully to find tradesmen - or word of mouth from neighbours/local friends.

Not keen on these dark evenings - i'm back to only "seeing" my garden at weekends

Roundabout sounds wonderful Woody - hope it is in its prime in time for garden visits next year

Morning all

Top tip from last nights talk: yellow flowers in your garden lower the metabolism....so lots of rudbeckias etc can be an effective substitute for the gym or a diet.  Who knew ??

Sorry to hear you've all been sick OL - miserable end to a lovely holiday.

Thanks Nut - its not in my garden, so won't be able to take more pics, but it was about a 2 ft mound shape.

Loved the blue too, Patsy.  It was in flower today, but not sure since when, or how long it will go on.
