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

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.
