I think this site is a bit like my knitting - someone must've dropped a stitch early on and now whenever you get one bit of the pattern back on track another bit is out of kilter. 

There's probably no answer but to pull it all out, wind the yarn up a and cast on again ........... but do we want that?

It's a big worry......

I use a large-ish wide-bladed knife just as Pansyface does - it does the job quickly, efficiently and makes no extra washing up. 

Now then, now then....

Fascinating Verdun   Keep us informed.

As I've said before, Bressingham is close to where I used to live and it was frequently the venue for Sunday outings with the children - they loved Alan Bloom's steam engines and he was great with the children.  I enjoyed the gardens and nursery so everyone was happy (well, I didn't ask the then husband if he was happy but he seemed to enjoy it - sometimes we took his mum as well).

As I said, Alan was a great character and very much" hands on" in the nursery etc - but my memories of it are as not really the most orderly of places, so maybe something got overlooked or an error was made somewhere along the line ...

So pretty BL  

A local GC has large 'tree sized' ones like that lining their driveway at this time of year - very effective

I'll be driving home in the dark this evening after visiting a friend - I wonder how many illuminated gardens I'l see now that Advent has started
