RHS London Shows.

Thanks Mike - i had always intended to make time to visit one of the RHS London shows, but doesn't sound too much fun.  Do you think the extra people came from the moving of the day away from mid week - or is gardening experiencing a popularity boom?

Roses and tulips are all behind bars for that reason Dove.  But quite a lot survives outside the cage - including my growing collections of hellebores (i blame you lot for that) and snowdrops.  OH is busy making more fortress protection for our new veg/fruit patch as we speak

Thank you Daniel and friends - much appreciated support outside office hours

Lovely day here - have some planting to do and some seeds to sow.  Late last night, whilst returning from taxi duties, we saw a new, much smaller deer on the side of the road - not much bigger than a fox.  Which i think means that the muntjacs have moved in alongside our usual roe.  Hope they eat the same things, or some of my "safe" plants might be about to come a cropper

Lovely to know you are enjoying it Peanuts - i do too.  I don't have many friends who are into gardening, so this site gives me a way of chatting about it to others that are interested too.  So many new ideas, and so much advice, i have learnt so much by   joining in.

and as the little ones get bigger, you will get more time to potter out there - mine are now teenagers, and i can't work out how all those years flew by
