Sounds like you had a great time Dove - so glad she has caught the gardening bug....no looking back now

Mr Chicky and I went GC visiting together this afters.  He is a very bad influence on me.  He bullied me into buying some more pulsatillas, a tree peony (which he is going to look after, as my current ones -freebies from mags- are alive but not flourishing), a potentilla, an iris and some aubretia.  I must take him with me more often
