What new flower seeds are you going to grow in 2014

I had lots of sweet peas this year for the house, but I want some other flowers that I can line out in the veg patch and then cut for the house. I am still cutting dahlias and cosmos.

Busy lIzzie, what  variety of butternut squashes are you growing. ? Last time I tried they were a dismal failure, but now I have a really good sunny spot for them, and a delivery of FYM on the way.

My current toyboy had a heart attack at 40.  non smoker , fit, clean out of the blue. After a recuperation period, we reassessed our life. No point saving up for being old and grey, do it now. We booked a round the world trip, went and did it.

He wanted to climb the sydney harbour bridge.   I was too scared to let him go on his own, so I did it too. a lot of Ibuprofen next day, but I'm  glad we did it. 10 years on, he got passed fit to go back to diving, we have dived all over the world. We may be old and grey, we may be broke, we will still have our memories.
