Panda Good to let your hair down every once in a while Glad you had a good time - love the Oxo tower (although only for special occasions).

Welcome home Yvie - hope you had a lovely time in the sun.

Lovely to see all the salvias on GW.

Looking forward to the weekend and taking stock of my garden in the daylight

Morning all.  Just been out watering my new heathers ..... Pretty misty out there.  Chicklet is driving us this morning - to get some rush hour practice - she has her test in a couple of weeks - at 8.30am on a Monday morning

Happy 16th to OL's biggest little man

Woody - the answer is doughnuts, but you'll have to fight Verd for them

A garden is the best medicine

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 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.
