Mike, kew gardens always has an orchid festival, early on each year. February, I think. Well worth having a look at, but I'd buy them from the supermarket. Lidl often have some good ones at very reasonable prices.
One of the neighbours with very short gardens is setting off display fireworks. I bet they're ricking their necks to see them. Very noisy. I hope it doesn't upset my wildlife.I've not seen the hedgehogs since i got back, but i saw flash the albino rodent this afternoon.
You know, I looked at that gate and thought how unusual it was. Kind of rustic. I think it looks ok in that situation. I don't suppose it's good for keeping bullocks out though.
Someone has left a black cat behind. Spikes chasing it around verduns flowerbeds.I think he wants his walk on the beach if anyones up to it.
I think verduns gone out for more cake.
Scout can share the fire rug with spike. I think spike might have eaten all the sausages though.
Good roaring fire in the cabin. Don't trip over spike.
