Topbird. For fear of being called racist " they all look the same to me "

I don't know if he's been around the last few days as we've been busy in another part of the garden.

Punkdoc, guilty as charged. 

I'm about to do my round up of pots. It's like those films you see with all the crabs lined up ready to move up a size and the one behind ready to take over the shell. With me it's agapanthus

dead easy to grow. I couldn't get them to last more than one year, but I'd happily buy new each year.

I must be a filthy , lazy old mare. I've never washed pots. It'll rain on them,that'll do  , won't it?
