Hosta and OH - have a fab holiday

Turning chilly here now - I think I'll put the heating on now that I'm sitting down.  I've made the fish pie filling, just got to cook and mash the tatties ...

New Year's Day 2016 Flower Count

Posted: 31/12/2015 at 15:25

As far as I'm concerned one flower is a flower.  That's how I've always counted them.

I really don't see why Gar needs to grow things on his balcony when he's got a lawn he could dig up .......... it would save all that lawn cutting he was talking about elsewhere


Gar, do you know Garden Fairy - he/she is another new member from Canada ... you could get him/her to pop around and give you some ideas - he/she is into garden design

landscaping my garden :) :)
