Oh, and Panda, your echinaceas are called Tiki Torch  - i bet Verdun's got them in his garden.

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
