who are members of GOY ! the answer is YES .
While visiting relatives in Hereford walking over Victoria bridge and into the Castle green gardens , I was looking for Wyeboy ,I saw a gardener with blonde spikey hair with red splodges in it tending the plants , ( Was that you Wyeboy ? )

In the City centre there was this character , could it possibly be Clueless Kev in disguise ? busking his way round the country

Next on to Wales to visit my husbands sister , she is not well ,she has a brain tumour ,that was the reason for our trip.
Who should live a few miles up the road but Hywel ,… I mean really … I had asked him before we left if I could drop some plants off which I knew he wanted , he very kindly said that we should call to see his garden ,which of course we did .
Hywel ,his mother and Beryl are lovely ,they made us so welcome ,
His garden is amazing ,he has an enormous diversity of plants,lots of them in pots waiting for another piece of ground to be cleared , and that view Wow !
He is such a talented person as well , with his potters wheel , also his drawings and sketches are briliant , you should be putting them in a craft shop Hywel . And Hywel thank you once again for having us as your guests , it made the whole jouney worthwhile .

Amy ~
Great blog.

Does GoY have a member called Dorothy Perkins?
If so, I think you've spotted her hiding behind Cluelesskev.

It just shows that GOY can bring people together,and be able to put a face to a member, looks like you both had a lovely day.

I've always thought it would be good to meet up with GOY friends. We all have a lot in common. I notice you are standing behind Hywels famous sundial.
If ever you feel the yen to come to Hungary do get in touch. I will be in UK later in October if anyone is in the E Sussex area or bordering areas of Kent, do let me know if you want to meet. I will be staying in Hastings.

How many weeks is your visit?
While you're here, will you check on GoY?

Hywel, now Amy has praised your art work I demand that you post some examples on GOY. Our UK gardening season is almost over but we can still share our hobbies and interests as we are all kindred spirits.

Amy, lovely to see you in 2D, we must all wonder what is behind our avatars.

Thanks for the compliments Amy.
It was a pleasure to welcome you both and we all enjoyed your company.
I felt as if I'd always known you. You are both so very friendly.

Well now I'd better hurry up and finish some of my drawings to put them on GoY.
Best wishes, H.

Lyd and David thanks for your kind words aswell.
A gentleman..... well I do try sometimes lol.

Although parts of my garden are still in a bit of a mess. Maybe clueless kev is hiding in there somewhere .

Hi Amy - I'm in Hereford - we could have passed oneanother unknowingly on the Vicky Bridge....... Not been around here on GoY much recently (business problems taking priority I'm afraid). Re the red indians, they are getting a bit like pigeons - we try not to encourage them. I was in Falmouth recently and they had a troup of red indians too....perhaps they were the same ones? Well, one thing's for sure - whenever i see them now, I'll be wondering if one of them is CluelessKev......maybe I'll tap one on hte shoulder and ask......

Hi Sid , were you the one that jumped off Vicky bridge into the water on that hot day ?? Ha Ha what a splash !!
You're right the indians do seem to be everywhere just lately , If Clueless is amongst them no wonder he is never home , next time you see an indian on your travels , I dare you to ask if his name is Kev .... and keep a straight face !! LOL

Yup - that was me! - no I'd be the one drowning and needing to be rescued if I tried that!

Will do, next time I see one of those indians. :-D
