Good morning all Have a good walk Fairy 


We've got blue sky, bright sunshine and a light breeze. Not quite what I was expecting. .... When's this gale coming then? I've got all my hatches battened down

Contemporary Sleeper Bed

Just a thought - take care that any raised bed doesn't compromise the damp proof course of your house. 

Some beginner questions

And I would add, visit as many gardens as you can. Take photos of the bits you like - it'll help give form to your ideas. 


Enjoy

So pleased for him!  Such a fine horseman!   I've been a fan of his since he was a lad working in Harvey Smith's stable -  watched him win the Puissance when he was n'owt but a lad.  Drinking his health here in Norfolk.  


See original post

 My memory's at fault - he rode for Ted Edgar

Yes maybe half an hour ago - his chin was qivering - bless him - then they had an interview with him.  He said he will not come back for an 8th Olympic competition - the horse will be too old

OMG it was Ted Edgar he worked for, not Harvey Smith - what was I thinking of   Of course! 


It was a long time ago and I am getting old..... 27 after all ... no wonder my memory's a bit dodgy

He can't be Fairy - he's nearly as old as me!!!  I've been watching him since then too - I remember him winning the Puissance at Olympia when he was n'owt but a lad ... beating his boss |Harvey Smith into the bargain if I'm not mistaken.   I'm such a fan!!!  Large celebratory G & T being taken here

Obelixx   normally I don't do orange either - I even gave my Geum Totally Tangerine to Wonky as it was too orange ... but I just love this begonia - it works really well near our blue garden seat.
