ITS THE WEEKEND- thank heavens for that.  There were times i thought this one might never end.  Is it too early for wine do you think?

just picked up Chicklet from a restaurant that only sells puddings.  She had a lovely time - oreo milkshake (sorry Woody, another US import, but apparently it doesn't work as well with Hob Nobs) and banoffee waffle.  Not one for every day of the week but fun for a treat

Got a trip to Wisley planned this weekend - they have a craft fair on that was good for present ideas last year.  Will have a wander round the gardens whilst i am there ( would be rude not to!)

Mine isn't fully sealed, but ivies, ferns and parlour palms do well

 My layers are just gravel and compost

I got a label maker last Christmas - love it !  My GH now looks like a professional nursery - and more importantly the writing doesn't fade.

Lizzie - how scary.  And what a hassle!! Hope you get it sorted soon - do you think the truck has noticed anything missing yet?

morning all - fog forecast here all day (yuck)- but starting to look forward to a fine weekend already.....

Buried treasure

We found an old water barrow buried in the undergrowth - its now used for plants.  Similarly an old metal container used for storing Walls ice cream choc ices - also now planted up.  OH complains that if he leaves anything lieing around for more than a fortnight he comes back to find something planted in it !
