Ecky Thump!  Just typed out my post and lost it

morning folks.  

Sorry about your friend Dove.  Hope you are coping well 

good luck Woody..........sounds a womderful treat in store for all your visitors.  Fingers crossed for you for the weather

on impulse last night.....11 pm.... in the drizzle I moved a couple of plants.  Checked this morning and am happy with my work.  Now have a gap at the back where I have replacements.  Choice between subtle and showy......subtle with a restio I think

its dry, warm and cloudy here.  The forecast is no help but I think it will be fine today.  I have hung out some washing because the old adage is hang out your washing and the sun will shine, right?

Cornwall Breathe.  Yes I know a few people who sell plants.  Some are selling unusual things they arent even aware of.. 

Drifts?  Well I do some planting in groups...heathers,,argyranthemums, etc. but I find plants grow pretty big down here so single plants look good.   Besides I am a bit of a plantsman....meaning I want to grow lots of different plants
