Good Evening FORKERS

good choice it was will be waiting for them in the next few days will get to see what they look like in the packs and testing them on the wood sometimes looks total different - found I have a sample still of the beech blue

Dove does visit my garden sometimes, this one is a smaller dove and a whole load of other small bird came in for there food - blue tits, sparrows, starlings and great tit, only filled up the feeding tube the other day food is going down quick at min they must all be hungury

not sure if it is free p+p all the time before it has not been a few pounds then normally maybe they changed it much better

Here is another pic

Been sorting out seeds for seed swap today, been a bit of climbing up a ladder to get seeds from the pampas grass hope they are seeds not collected them before. glad you got your seeds 4thPanda

Thanks 4thPanda

I will get samples from there got some before from there great service post right through the letterbox, I have been using some on my bug boxes I have been making - trying to use the samples up and add colour to the garden. 

Last time I went to b&q they only had 1ltr size tins at the smallest which is not - fair like small tins just to re do small bits of the painting in the garden and tester were big enough to do good size area.

The tester though the post are just right size to use and come with a small paint brush which helps
