Speaking as someone who can dance (not fantastically well) but understands a few of the finer points. I would like to see (just because she's easy on the eye) Frankie win...but if it were Caroline or Pixie I would be quite happy too.

My 1 2 3 would be, 1 Frankie 2 Caroline & 3 Pixie.

Oh yes, and I wouldn't kick Darcy out of bed either.

I have safety glass in mine. But I agree with the above, allotment= polycarbonate.

 

artjak, that must have cost an absolute fortune.

Glad you found the Stuart Crump link, KEF  it did rather get lost following some prolific posting of other  pics.

He's a very accomplished photographer and his work is well worth viewing......even inspired me to change my b&w house to b&w. 

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I sowed my sweet peas yesterday. Here's a question: Assuming that they do alright, is it wise to sow another batch in spring for a later flowering, or will the first batch keep going all season?

Thannks!

Hi, ommthree

The seeds you have recently sown will flower between May & Aug/Sept...those sown in March should continue to flower until the autumn.

Lovely shots, Lily....the poppy in a glass was a very good subject choice.

For me, not sure Jennifer was the worse dancer, although perhaps she was nearing her time.

Prepare for a heatwave!!!

Glass V Polycarbonate Greenhouse

I’m afraid glass greenhouses are in danger of becoming extinct in favour polycarbonate…..the later being safer, more durable and cheaper.

Polycarbonate glazing is recommended if you have children or animals running around your garden as any impact will merely result in the child or dog/cat bouncing of the polycarbonate panel or at the worst popping a panel out which can be put back in place simply and quickly. A collision of this type with a glass greenhouse or coldframe would result in serious injuries.

Your 12 x 8 greenhouse is a sensible size and should prove to be very useful.
