Dont blame you mate ,putting plants that come back every year in our garden ,makes it easier to manage.

I only grow herbs and veg anyway

Hello everyone, sorry I have been really busy this week. Wednesday I was booked on a boat trip on the River Trent. I forgot about it until literally the last minute. It was without a doubt the single most boring day I have ever had in my life.
Thursday I had business in town all day the we had a Gospel choir evening arranged with some friends that took up the evening. This morning I had to go and see about a new suit, we have a funeral and two weddings coming up. One wedding in particular I am extremely looking forward to. Both of them really good friends.
Tonight we have a Parish Council meeting, this one is of most importance. I hope to get back on here tomorrow.
