Garden news.

Some of you may remember our heather beds in the back garden. Well, last winter finally killed them off. Thity-eight years isn't bad going! We decided to hire my mate Andy to remove the dead heather(it was too much for Dad). Dad and my sister went off to the garden centre and came back with eight Rhododendrons.

Some months later here is the result.

The other six suffered from the re-planting and their buds died, but they will flower next year.

Lovely.

Your sister? For some reason I'd always thought you're the only child. Sisters are great!

Ericaceous compost, Pat. It's the only way we can grow them!
