Glad you're in tact LesleyK!

 

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Posted: Yesterday at 08:50

What a fab thread! I'll definitely have a go at some if these. My favourites include the Derek Tangye series about his and his wife's life changing move to Minack.  The writing style is very simple, but the descriptives are wonderful and something I relate to when I'm dreaming of giving up work in hectic London.  

I also LOVE A Year In Christines Garden By. Christine Walkden. Oh, and Toast by Nigel Slater is brill too. 

As a child I really liked All About My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards. 

A special book for me is Escape from Sobibor by Richard Rashke. My grandad was a prisoner of war in Japan and he never talked about his horrific experiences, but he deep keep this one book as he related to it. Makes me feel very proud of him and greatful he came home.

I liked it. Anything that brings more gardening to the telly is good for me. I liked that it was real gardens and not elitist.

It was pretty windy in Nottinghamshire this morning but seems to have quietened down a little.  Sky looks very grey though. What's it like where you are Gardening friends?

Bake off again

The best thing about Bake Off for me is seeing a mature female on telly.  It's so refreshing and interesting to watch a woman that's full of life's wealth.

Leo sounds adorable! I adopted a cat last Wednesday from the cats protection league. He's 8 and called Sidney. So far he's scratched a new sofa to bits and made a 'stain' on a new carpet.... and I love him! He's worth every bit of destruction. Can't wait to see what he'll be like in the garden!

New Weeding Tool

1. Seeing the little beggars re grow so quickly and getting the complete root out

2. Get all the root out with ease: most I find just snap some root off.

3. Root snapping!

4. A magic one that did it for me! And also told me that me bum never looks big in anything I wear
