Agree with Crocus and Hardy's.  Have also been very pleased with Burncoose, Sarah Raven and Seagate Irises.  Ashridge trees were excellent too

Stacey - what a gorgeous pony - what was her name??  We have never made it anywhere near Olympia (other than as spectators) - probably just as well - my heart is in my mouth even at local shows.  Mostly i can't look

All very sad here - Chicklet has just had to say goodbye to the horse she has had for the last 3 years - owner (who we have not seen for the same amount of time) decided she wanted him back.  Strange how attached us two legged creatures can get to the four legged ones.  Lots of tears

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
