I have a nice new terrace and furniture, made from recycled scaffolding planks ( made in Scotland), and sitting there with test match on radio and cup of tea is too tempting!!

Lots happening in the garden too, almost too much to list. Sorry for being so tardy.

Cheap plants at Aldi!

Trouble is the Lidl/Aldi staff don't know a weed from a flower, and I, for one, will regret losing my local nursery, who give all round value.
