Joe so sorry to hear about your friend,

BM are you kidding? I was out of there before you could say " Jack Rabbit" 

(who was Jack Rabbit?)

Panda,  fingers crossed sounds good

Lesley K hope your gang and folks all well

Chucking it down, just made loads of sun(oven) dried tomatoes for the cupboard and a big fish pie.

Now off to knit some teddies  Anyone in Scotland looking for a reason to knit? I try to help knit for memory boxes for little ones who come into this world sleeping. Always desperate for new knitters!

Lovely photos everyone. I really love seeing what all the gardens are like. Such skills!

Finally the box hedge has been cut and it looks the better for it!

thanks to a fellow forum member we are now treating it with a chemical recommended, and cleaning out the base, as long as there isn't any heavy snow this winter we may see improvements!!

Hope all who sick, sore or itchy feel better today

We have had plenty rain this summer, today is lovely and hopefully the box hedge will get cut. Have waited weeks for this chap, fingers crossed

Away for one to one Pilates which is really helping my back, Pdoc want to come too?

Sorry not to reply, had a problem with the site today

yes, the house is now open and a very interesting tour, and the coffee shop excellent. We went for the Sunday Roast Lunch the Restruant. Superb

Thanks for the explanations re the cold frames, very interesting
