Would be nice if they were mountains Cordy. I've only moved about a mile or so inland up to bungalowland on a hill.

Re: Yorkshire Kris might have a big new one.

Fingers crossed for you Kris. I know you've been waiting a long time for this to happen. That's a great looking space you have there too.

Moved myself on the 30th Nov, have so much to do inside the new place that gardening is a distant dream at present.

Re: Garden for sale (complete with house!)

Your garden looks great Bob! I see that plants grow really well down in north Devon. Your gingers are delightful. I also spy that Persicaria Red Dragon - I am pleased to say that the cuttings you sent me have all rooted, so I will be planting them out next year, thanks again for sending them up :) ...
