Wow, what a garden and house. And the hedge!!!! Must take hours to keep that trimmed. Rather them than me.

You don't have to rant Lizzie, I don't (often) but get an e-mail for every new rant. Have you inadvertently deleted the "tick" in your settings?

artjak, that's one of the reasons for no ducks! Besides, it's difficult enough to find a babysitter for the cats when we go away.

Dinner tonight is pork chops, roast new potatoes, broccoli and carrots.

I've thought about having ducks occasionally as we have a small pond, but then they would be pets and I don't think we could kill and eat them!

Morning everyone. Bev, the nose-lickling is probably to cover the guilty conscience for eating up the spaghetti!

Has spring arrived for you yet?

Same here, Busy-Lizzy, the only things blooming are snowdrops and winter aconite, everything else is still in hibernation. Snow showers again right now!

I looked at that view of hundreds of those roses and was desperate to hear the gardener say 'Now I'll tell you what we do to the soil to make it fit for all these brilliant roses, here's what we find is the best thing to feed them with and here's how we keep all these roses healthy".

That is exactly what went through my mind, Yarrow. I agree with everything you said. I wonder if it would help if you emailed your comment to the BBC?

Perhaps if they got a flood of input from all of us it would make a difference!

Just spent the last half hour exercising the laughter muscles with Mrs. Brown's Boys! I love him/her. Does that make me decadent?

Perhaps Northern Ireland is as far as their horizon will go.
