Lovely news about little one Liri - that must be such a relief.

Just in .... OH had bangers and mash waiting - yum.

enjoyed catching up but now can't remember it all - so hope all aches and pains are recovering, packing is being done and GC purchases are being admired.  I have thalictrum Hewits double - planted last year and flowering for the first time this year - lovely. Intense violet

Woody, Ggirl - we are collecting a posse for a Wisley visit - can either of you Hampshire Hogs make it ? (Its ok to call you that as I am one too)

Woking station is dead easy to get to from Waterloo - about 30 minutes journey, and the trains go about every 10 mins. Happy to pick you both up from there (and drop you back to Woking at the end of the day too). Surrey is very friendly

How about I pick you up from Woking at about 11?  And then meet anyone else who can make it at Wisley about 11.30 to noonish??
