It is a good central point. Bodmin.

my son  delivers in Camborne, has to lock the van and has been shouted at several times.

" DON'T GO TO BODMIN"  We've heard on many occasions from folk round here.

" 10,000 people, one set of great grandparents"

I have to confess , I'm not keen on Camelford either. but I love Crackington Haven.

See original post

 Redruth and Camborne are the worst, you take your life into your hands when you go there, don't make eye contact!!  Trevone  and Tintagel are my favourite places. 

Bodmin has had its roads up for months, you have to go right out to camelford and back in that way, so that and the roadwork stretching for 7 miles, and has been for three years, it's a nightmare to go anywhere down that way.

I need to go to Homeleigh and the glazier so let me know when you're home again on the next nice day and I'll bring the iPad.

I cut mine down to a few inches, all of it, but it's up to you, we all do it differently.

Aym in late summer and autumn all that lot will be finished then it's full of hot colours. Hoping to delay the Tithonia until I need it.

"Anybody knows the name of this place please?"

I'd say it's Lovely Lyn's vision of heaven, my vision of ..... the other place.

Each to their own eh?

 Too posh for me Hosta,  I don't like anything laid out as regimental as that, mine's just a rambling cottage garden with whatever will grow in it, do like tubs and baskets on the patio though but only pink blue and lavender colours. Yellows and orange are far to gaudy on the patio, not restful.

Having said that, I have set those Tithonia seeds as above, the cottage garden beds turn to hot clolours  in the late summer.

this is more me in the Spring, unless I've jumped to conclusions and you know another Lyn😳.

Is that an American site, I couldn't put the date in, back to front like in US, so 3.9.2017 instead of 9.3.2017 !

And you, AYM, very busy today, so much to do!πŸ˜€

Is this fair?

Hope you get your greenhouse up ok Linda. We are renewing broken panes in ours, every time I look, I see another cracked pane, still cheaper than buying new GH's though. (OH is fed up with itπŸ˜€) 

My garden hasn't kept me sane over the past year or so, quite the reverse, it's been a constant worry, , but I'm back on track this year and raring to go.
