Good to see you here Pentillie - fingers crossed and very positive thoughts for your daughter.

We're fine here in East Anglia - we had our bad weather in early Dec.  Others are finding the soil a bit boggy and some have new water-gardens and paddyfields, but I don't think there's anything too bad happened to friends on this forum

No CK comes across as totally genuine to me , but that chap last night was surely performing semaphore - his gesticulations beat CK hands down - I did find that irritating.

I don't have a glasshouse but was interested in looking at the tender plants - and the home-made greenhouses were fantastic!

Hope your friend is getting proper support in her role as a carer Verdun - Crossroads for Carers are brilliant as are  She needs to take time for herself to help with healing - she probably knows all about them, but just in case - I was sometimes surprised when visiting families that they didn't feel they qualified for any support.

Dovefromabove, Yes even Chelsea is guilty here, I thought it was called Chelsea flower show not I'm a designer show.

I will probably be shot down now, Oh well.

I think there are several people here who will agree with you
