Feels like finally got the plot under control after holidays 

Hope alls well with your plots 

The grass Road ways have not been cut for ages and a couple of plots seem to have been abandoned , the site agent not doing a very good job at all

Hello , scent , I was watching a programme I recorded some time ago called Great BrIrish Garden Revival and the first part was about Scent , something that is often over looked which is a shame , the village show has a class for scented roses which I quite often win 

Hope you are having a good day

Good morning all , another nice day , so some more gardening 

Having a late breakfast , following a bit of a lie in 

I do like liver  and kidneys but o/h doesn't so she doesn't cook them !

Local pub use to do liver & bacon which I use to have when we eat there 

At one time you use to get a chop with kidney , we called it Barnsley Chop , no idea why !

Hope those feeling under weather are better soon 

Have a good day everybody
