... Guess there goes the idea of spending the weekend in my pants in an inflatable paddling pool drinking cider! 

I don't see why   Isn't that how most people spend their weekends?    It's certainly what we do when  Wonky comes to visit

Isnt' it great Barry?!

This evening OH was washing up and one of the robins saw him through the kitchen window and demanded mealworms - OH came through to the dining room door out to the terrace and the robin flew straight to him and fed from his hand before OH had stepped outside!

Why do the RHS let celebrities in on the first day? ........

It's like the Private View of an art exhibition - the exhibitors will be able to invite a number of people, and of course they will invite past and potential patrons - it's a chance to showcase their work.  It costs a lot of money to put on a stand or make a garden - and it's all a marketing exercise - taking part has to benefit their business or there's no point in taking part.

Sanjy thanks   but how embarrasing I'd forgotten about doing that - retired for 18 months and my IT skills are disappearing

However, although I know I've seen that plant recently, I don't know it's name - but someone will .........

Hurrah Lolabee, you've filled in your Public Profile - that's great - so few people do.    And how fantastic that you've got toads - they'll gobble up any slugs that appear.

But I'm afraid I can't see your pic well enough to ID it - have you got access to a pc/laptop/tablet or whatever?
