So sorry Verdun.I think that is very creepy too. Not something we would consider at all. 

The memories will always be with you, you will never forget.

Welcome Nigel its lovely to have a garden you can start from scratch.

Lots of good advise above, I would just add that if it was mine I would put all those stones and statues in one place, like a little rockery, probably in that far corner.

You could sow some sweet peas for this year to brighten the trellis

A friend wanted to buy a special present for his wife's important birthday.

He decided to have a Rose named after her.

She was really pleased and flattered until she saw in the catalogue that it was described as no good in a bed, but great against a wall.


Eleanor Roosevelt said that!

Mine are only the common old Bride ones, really easy from seeds and flowered in the first year. They are very untidy plants I have them in a cage support to stop them dangling over everything else.

All getting silly, W.O, this is actually a school in Wales. Perhaps the Head didnt think they could be trusted to label goods.

I used to cook for our local W.I. market, but it got so complicated, then they started to talk about stainless steel worktops etc, I couldn't be doing with it anymore.
