Maybe I should start a fantasy thread...

The perfect garden.  Starting with verduns climate, perfect soil, and  no weeds, slugs, or lily beetles. Followed by a run through all the best nurseries, nabbing those plants they were keeping for Chelsea. of course I'd need  a diet coke man or three to do the heavy lifting and digging....

.......... or would that be a separate fantasy thread

Go on, a fantasy garden thread sounds just what we need .....................

I currently have a huge stash of plant porn. I'm trying to resist, but I find circling things with a highlighter pen curiously satisfying.

I'm still doing that Fidget ... but not ordering.  As Ma once said in a car showroom when the man had spent an hour trying to sell her a car "Oh, no I don't want to buy a car, I can't drive ..... I'm only choosing what I would have if I could drive."
