Always wondered where you all displayed your garden photos. Found you.

Toojk some last year and wanted to 'show' but didn't know where

Will add in future if wind/rain/autumn/winter comes to end.

Using wind as excuse to stay in.

High winds have blown my olive over again. Think I'll get abigger pot for it in spring. For now I'll snuggle it up in the greenhouse. Last year the 2 of them looked like ghosts standing there draped in fleece. Coming up to the right time of year for that - ghosts and fleece. Any one any good olive keepingtips?

Taken up knitting. My 26 year old daughter didn't even know I could knit. Finished tonight a little dress for my 4 week old grand daughter - 1st one. Just have great trouble sewing it up to look like a little dress!!

Prefer gardening.

Don't attempt too much in one go. Design and dig in areas rather than whole plot
