Morning all,  Saturday morning  course at the Cotswold Gardening school was very enjoyable, I came home buzzing. Had a one to one session with Carolyn Tatham (award winning garden designer and lecturer at Highgrove!!) She was really helpful &  interesting & we got on like a house on fire. Had a tour of her 9 acre garden after her lecture (which was more of a discussion really.)  The school is next to her 15th century house, which in itself has an amazing history. Well worth going if you live in the West Country.

Spent Sunday at the allotment and have finally finished the beds (well, covered the last square metre with cardboard and muck as it  was far too wet to dig), tidied and weeded, made 2 compost bays & pruned the fruit bushes!!All  looks winter ready now.

What a weekend!!


p.s sorry about your chooks Fruitcake, I'm sure something will turn up
