I love Marigolds,I grew the common old fashion ones this year and they such a long lasting show and were the only plant that did so well.I grew them on my front border and they looked stunning even if I say so myself.I wish you a very happy new year and may it bring you a lovely summer and happy hours of garening.

I like to see blackthorn(sloes) in blossom that is lovely but for a display laburnum,saw a fantastic example at a cottage we stayed at in Wales,the long golden chains were stunning.Also I have Tamarisk in a hedgerow and that to  looked good.Hawthorn is another.

sounds  a bit   well I feel like screaming at the thought,I know a friend of mine bit into a choc bar and found a mouse,eeeek.but mice pies and snail scallops seems a very green way of disposing of these poor creatures and save on the food bill!eeeeeekkk.
