Yes ... I really do keep it on except at bed and bathtime.  Promise 


The other day OH came home from the city with some Bodyshop Peppermint Foot Lotion ... bless him!  A very gentle application is absolute bliss 

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

It's nice to share our gardening, and at the moment I'm on the sofa with a broken foot, so I've got time on my hands 

Any ideas?

There's a glitch on the forum at the moment and photos won't upload ... the tech team are looking into it and NoraGW will let us know as soon as it's fixed.
