Like bekkie, I'm not up to speed with happenings on this thread, having said that I send my best wishes to Matty and hope she makes a quick & complete recovery.

Steve McCurry is a National Geographic photographer and some of you may have seen this portrait of the Afghan girl. This is inspiring to anyone who would aspire to take stunning portraits.

Anyone with nostalgic traits towards old TV progs, I would suggest getting a copy of The Victorian Kitchen Garden. Presented by Peter Thoday and ably assisted by the wonderful & talented head gardener, Harry Dodson.....the latter being on a par with the sainted Geoff Hamilton, IMHO.

Before this thread vanishes into oblivion, I would just say that there is another thread running in the Potting Shed entitled 'Monty Don Tour'...and although I've only skim read it, it seems to be a sell-out....and this is one of the concerns I have about Mr Don.

Given these tours and TV work, I would think more of him if he were honest and not try to pretend that his pristine, large garden was as a result of his own efforts and let us know who does the real work at Longmeadow... after all, it was in a pretty run down state when GW was first broadcast from there.

I'm retired, single & bone idle....having said that, my post count is still only about 3 and a half thousand.....very low compared to most.

Gizza a job!

Although I hold GH in as much high regard as everyone.... (predating him) Arthur Billitt was my own GH.

Peter Beale Roses publish a 'thornability' scale with their roses, so you can order accordingly when you buy.
