I live very close to Pictorial Meadows and they supplied their seeds to Rotherham Council who sowed them along roadsides & roundabouts etc and they really did look spectacular. I even wrote to Rotherham council to commend them.

It's impossible to miss me nutcutlet. I'll be the massive bloke arriving in a massive motorbike. I just hope there's somewhere to change out of my biking gear, walking around in armoured vortex, boots and helmet isn't fun

Shame you couldn't get to Chatsworth Show, the weather was perfect for it. We went but didn't get there until 1pm. We stayed right to the end were the traffic queues leaving the event were horrendous.

I live only minutes from Renishaw Hall, but have only been once many years ago. I really ought to visit again.
