Thank you so much.

I love it, I started digging that big  border in 2011, it was like a Pine forest, there was 7 conifer trees 25 years old in there, then it was planted up in 2012.

The long border, I dont know if you have seen that, but it was a conifer hedge and only planted in Spring this year.

I think its good because we have a lot of rain, I never need to water, only the baskets and tubs.

Anyone tried them deep fried, salt and vinigar reminded me.

 Its not easy stamping on them with wellies, they slip through to the edge and out.

Better not get side tracked, Graham will tell me off again.

Two big reasons why I cant come, I live many miles away, but apart from that I couldnt leave my parents for that long.

Wow, Fishy, thats brilliant!  you need to dig down about a foot place the liner, with a few little holes so you get a bit of drainage, put some gravel or something in the bottom then the soil on top.

Thats a good idea Hollie, dig a hole about 2 ft square by about 4 inches deep and chuck them in.

What colour did you get Fishy?

Fairy, We have some fun in that room, watching the wildlife that is

Fishy, this isnt just a garden, its a park, that piccy is only just one bit of it, its lovely and I am forever grateful to my parents for letting us build our extension on to their bungalow.

Thank you, may be money well spent then.

I am going around digging bits up here and there, flowers are nicer really than grass.
