i am mostly cottage gardener.. but some times my need to be clean and tidy and smart sharpe lines takes over.. but not for long i love my plants cramme din so no weeding to do and colour all year round if i can get it....

trying to load up some new pics of garden but the usual problem of camera and computer not talking to each other again is going on.. will wait for them to get off it and try again later
