Good morning all 

Another lay in (getting the hang of it now) - we're back from MIL's with a couple of kilos of gooseberries for jam.  She has two bushes and even after picking that lot you could hardly see where I'd picked.  

Today is going to be busy - Homebase then tennis this morning, then topping and tailing the goosegogs in front of the tennis this afternoon and making an amalgamation of Nigella and the Hairy Bikers' Spanish Chicken for supper.  There will also be some pottering and deadheading and scrutinizing of beds as of course, we came back from visiting Nut's garden with a boot full of plants   (However, I did manage to get my own back this time and took her some tomato and squash plants and a salvia cutting.)

GW Magazine - crazy amount of advertising

I don't notice them - but then I don't notice most of the tv ones either - except that odd chap with the stary eyes on Hello Fresh - he's weird (sorry if someone on here is his mum!!!)

Advertising pays for a large proportion of the magazine, and the loose ads that come with it help pay for the delivery (mine go straight into recycling) - and you do get the Two for One card for loads of garden visits - it seems reasonable value to me.  

Ok what's wrong now!!??!!

Fairy, yes we put the whole world to rights - for just a few moments absolutely everything was perfectly fine - the some of those other *****s screwed it all up again

Bless you Fairy ((hugs)). I did offer but didn't know it would coincide with me being away. 

We'll be visiting Nut while we're away

Good morning all  It's brightening up out there 

Hosta  Glad you're pleased with the new bed. I'll happily post your pics but I'm going to be AWOL for a few days from 11am today as we're going to MILs today and I don't get good network coverage out there. Does anyone else want to volunteer to post Hostas pics for him? 

Wish me luck
