It's always assumed I sound like I'm from Yorkshire. Having heard my own voice and having an auntie with a Yorkshire accent I just don't hear it.

I love Lichfield. Many days out as a child there. Alrewas was a favourite of my dads too.

David K, going back to your original post, I'm from Burton on Trent originally, it's always nice to hear people have heard of it... I now live in worcester and people look at me blankly when they ask where my accent is from. Never thought I had much of one, but ho hum. Lovely photo, must dig out the proper camera when I can

That top one is stunning Lizzie, I'm just in awe of the space you have, if that's the size of the garden imagine the house!

 

And thank you so much Mrs Garden, I sat down in it for ten minutes just admiring the flowers as much as you can a garden that faces a road and a busy pedestrian path!

Thanks Cleo! It's starting to take shape, just need some much bigger pots ready for the seedlings! I really love the oranges, I had a lot of pinks and purples, feels more balanced now. I only wish I could have some hanging baskets or some of the pots that lie flat against the wall.

that's the problem with being a sales assistant for the past 5 years, I've never had to pay full price for clothes, especially when I've a penchant for rooting about in charity shops! I wanted to learn how to knit cat toys and other such useful things, I think I always knew an entire jumper would be beyond my remit! I managed a scarf for the OH's teddy bear!

Seeing as I'm a sales assistant i'm very glad nobody has ever done this to me!

 I love the last photo, though now I have a large number of pots (21 in fact!) I fear it might be drawing attention to itself and I don't want them stolen or vandalised... once some idiot stole my Dad's incredible hanging baskets. At least it shows i'm proud of them!

Books recommended for container gardening?

I will only ever have various pots at this house, however long we live here, there just seems little point in putting lots of effort into the single, thin and not very deep border we have, when we could be moving out in a month's time, which does get tiring, but I'm happy with pots for now, at least until I see all of your fabulous gardens of course!

 

I like reading books, and getting inspiration for how to arrange pots, at the moment all mine are single plants, and hope to change that, can anyone recommend any good books? Especially for new starters!
