Good job Fairy - when do the builders arrive?

thats quite a slope Liri - but very picturesque.

had our first Newton Wonder apple today, from a maiden planted 5 years ago.  Just as tasty as the one we tasted at the apple day at West Dean - which is why it went on the list.  Very fresh, and a little bit toffee like ( Sound like a wine critic).  Very nice indeed

Its looking great Fairy - and all only a year old - you are making such a difference to that space,  love that nasturtium too - another for the notebook - think i could have that tumbiling down a wall in my red corner.  Good to see the soon to be "ex" buddleia will live on in spirit

Good job you mentioned you're partial to cakes Verd - we might not have realised otherwise

I love my gaillardias too - had never heard of them before i bought them a couple of years ago - certainly didn't realise they were around in Granny Dove's time.

on a related (gaudy, in yer face) topic - how did the rustic dwarves do Dove?

It's my birthday
