Hope you are enjoying your few hours of peace, Becks. Most kids today look forward to going back to school. I hated it, always had loads of homework to do that I had been putting off all holidays.
Lottie, a few years ago a local demonstration garden, Probus, was being sold by the council and they were auctioning off the individual gardens. We bought the contents of the pond garden and a Japanese garden. They gave us about three days to come and dig or take away the plants in the gardens. We made quite a few trips back and forth but on one visit we found that some of the choice plants had 'vanished'. I thought gardeners would be honest people apart from taking the odd cutting . I did feel sorry for some of the gardeners who were mostly volunteers. they were devastated that the gardens were closing.
I hope you manage to get some nice plants, Lottie.
