Awwww.... I passed my driving test in a new Morris 1100, Dove.  Driving lessons were £5 for a double lesson.

How much....

'One second hand Morris Minor as seen, tried and approved.

£40. 0. 0. +  £3. .0 .0 for work carried out to pass MOT inspection.

Philippa - as you probably know, yellow sweet peas are the ones that have thus far eluded sweet pea breeders and (as I see it) this chloranthus as an attempt to address the issue and is still an experimental project.....for what it's worth, I have no knowledge of growing them.

 Great shots everyone.

The evening skies looked rather angry here tonight.

Chicky - the secateurs I use are like this:  www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002W6YYXY?keywords=single%20handed%20long%20secateurs&qid=1440334685&ref_=sr_1_fkmr0_1&sr=8-1-fkmr0

As I said, they're operated singlehanded and grip whatever you're cutting.

Hi, chicky

Pleased you've had success with your Chelsea Collection....if anyone ordering seed from Eagle SPs mentions my name, they would be interested.

Regarding those tall plants, I wouldn't recommend hacking them....I have a pair of long, single hand operated, secateurs for the purpose.

Amazing and worrying.

Yesterday I placed an order (car accessory) with Amazon at 13.40, this came with a Parcel Force tracking facility...which reads like so: Order placed 13.40, order collected 15.31 (Southampton) order loaded for delivery (Birmingham) 05.38 .....delivered to customer 09.45.

I'm sure you'll agree, 19 hrs delivery (free btw) is pretty amazing. But oh dear, this is doing nothing for the demise of our high streets.
