Evening all

Was busy day yesterday seed sowing wild flower mix, pruning bits and clearing and planting out climbing plants and my white flower plants, watering train up station and feeding birds

Today been on a trip out to Sussex to Bignor roman villa as free for the weekend, looking around at all the mosaic tiles, had some nice cake

Then noticed a flower show on today in Bury on way home so went had a look around took some pics lots of entries and the judges left comments on all entries so nice and helpful they had plants for sale so got some sweet Williams and pansy's and some allium bulbs

Remember all that GW mag coming out 23rd Sept will have free sweet pea seeds and a bulb voucher for free bulbs from the garden centre group (was Wyevale) so a great buy

Knackered now so off to bed night all

Been a resting day for me today

The other day while trying to put together the pallet project dad manage to whack me on the head with the drill bad pain and today big headache all day sore lump on my head
