Mike - brilliant suggestion - it should be Monty and Dove ...... It has the makings of a classic partnership .... A horticultural Morecambe and Wise

Morning all - have a great day out Dove.  GC's/nurseries are so easy to stumble upon by accident ......  Remember, if you purchase, photos must be shared!  

Today is brithday boxing day for Chicklet, so we are out for dinner tonight (she has an exam today, so wanted to put off going out for a day).  So will catch up with you all much later

Jeannie - so glad the seeds arrived safely

Lizzie - thanks on Chicklet's behalf 

I was getting notifications, but now they have stopped here too.  Quite a relief, as i was getting them in batches of 100 at a time

Here is the one i already have - my plant of the moment

Quick peek in - Chicklet's birthday, so have been busy with cakes and candles and stuff.  Can't quite believe I have a little one who is now old enough to drive ... how did that happen

Ggirl - great work with your pond.  Others are sounding like they are hopefully on the mend - take care with that back KEF, and hope lo is feeling brighter Stacey.

And on the gardening front - invested in another chenomales (?? but you know the one i mean) with peachy flowers - called Madam Butterfly.  I have another bed to fill, and the deer don't eat them on account of the vicious thorns.
