Welcome back Lesley - hope your Dad's better soon.
Hope Not Homer finds his own Pigeon Loft soon.
Well, I'm back from the swish re-modelled offices - a total re-fit, walls moved, new carpets, new kitchen, new electrics and a dishwasher in the kitchen!!! Interesting how they waited for me to leave before doing all that - I told them they should have said they were waiting for me to go - I'd have gone sooner
Afterwards I dropped into the nearby Wyevale GC with my £4 of vouchers - they expire at the end of August so they had to be spent. I fell in love with Buddleja Miss Ruby http://mygarden.rhs.org.uk/blogs/graham_rice/archive/2011/09/18/buddleja-miss-ruby-new-award-winner-from-gardening-express.aspx It is absolutely gorgeous with a capital 'G' - the one I bought is having its second flush of blooms and they're beginning to 'go over', turning a gorgeous mixture of violet and magenta - fabulous.
I have absolutely nowhere to put it I'll either have to dig another bed or move some things around this autumn
