Yes LB, loved that show. It was so well written and original in the beginning. I only watched it because l read Lorraine Kelly in a paper at work raving about this great new drama with as she put it " the most beautiful man" playing the lead. I think I've happened upon most of his roles πŸ˜€. He was a good dwarf in the Hobbit trilogy, then there was Hattie, and the brilliant Agatha Christie whodunit, you know the one with the towel...

He's not my Bond, and I'm sort of a fanπŸ˜€. Idris Alba would be great, love his voice and a mesmerizing presence. Or if they want a more gentlemanly Bond, James Norton.

The foot and mouth crisis was a horrific time down here too. My worst memory is the smell of the pyres, there was no escape from it for days. I do wonder if the money it costs to cull each badger would be better invested in research into an effective vaccine. Surely it would be better to think long term. It breaks your heart to see big, burly farmers on the local news reduced to tears because their prized , often rare breeds cows/ herds being carted off for slaughter. These farmers genuinely love their animals they can trace back generations. Devon has just been given the go ahead to begin an extensive cull. The protests have now started. I wish l had the answers or a magic wand.😞

Gardeners world going to try an hour long

Well l enjoyed it and am looking forward to programmes to come. I like to learn something new about plants, so the delphinium segment was good for me. I would never have known to thin out the stems else. The delphinium grower was informative and l saw flowers l never knew existed e.g. doubles. Adam is always worth watching . I like his laid back approach, the soil bit was educational and I'm looking forward to seeing his amazing garden evolve, a bit jealous too. The Liverpool bit was good. I would have liked to see the presenter get the couple outside to help so they could learn from her. The weather was helpful, it was dress down Friday guys. Anyhow we all wanted more , longer GW. Do you remember how cross we were when it was cancelled for the snooker, and the petition that was  supported by so many. They listened to the masses, and there was GW to watch through the tennis and the Olympics. So from me thank you BBC πŸ˜€

A few years back British Rail, or whatever they are now known as, cut down all the trees lining the railway over the field from us. I believe this was to stop leaves on the track. They felled some beautiful oak and chestnut trees and other tall native trees. This angered me and other villagers too. Now the railway is lined with self seeded ash trees, they are already quite a size.

I once sat behind Carol Klein on a flight back from Ireland. She'd been plant shopping, or had been gifted some beautiful ferns. She dozed off with them on her lap. She gave me a lovely smile whilst walking out of the airport, when she spotted me looking at her.
