Garden news.

My 'sister' came over this morning for a chat. As she was about to leave I asked her to take some photos with my new camera. Here are the results.

I know I've said it before but your dad keeps the garden beautifully. I hope he gets some time (and sun) to relax and enjoy it. Your new camera takes some pretty good photos. I remember those flowerpots~I was looking at my post about them only a couple of days ago!

It truly is a garden after my own heart. I could really do with your Dad's advice. I don't know why you don't live in the S West. Yes I do- the Merry Monk. MTL can't believe the free food on Sundays

Someday I'll come back to England, look you up to take a stroll around the garden, then down to the Monk for a pint! (or two...) :) Your Dad's a genius with the plants.

Your dad has done such a wonderful job on the garden John. Please add my compliments :-) Despite your lack of sunshine, dad has created a little bit of paradise.
