Hi Friends
I’ve just received this weeks Garden News and my garden is featured. Must admit thou I not over keen on the photos they’ve used but I had no control over that one. I hate having my photo taken and they’ve made me into a cut out much to th amusement of my family.

Life to say the least is hetic at the moment – as I have said before my Father in law is very poorly with terminal lung cancer – so the family has descended from across the world, there will be 10 adults + 2 kittens living in my house for the next 2 weeks -its mad. I think I’ll be talking a lot more on here for those 2 weeks as I escape to my bedroom for some peace -and I’m sure there is a lot of work to do in the greenhouse!!

Kay


At last, with my new camera I have taken a picture of the article in Garden news

Great news, Kay, on the feature in Garden News .. it is true that usually you have no control over which photos a magazine decides to include ... and how they will be used !

Not an easy family time for you at the moment .. it must be very stressful ..
yes, visit the greenhouse now and then for a quick break... x

Hi - Thanks all
Terratoonie - they took loads of photos and also many I had taken when I entered the competition and I am really surprised by the one they used on the main page. I must admit I'm a little disappointed but they must know what their readers want to see.

Kay, went to Smiths and bought the mag today, the article is great your garden looks beautiful, you must be so proud all that hard work, it looks truly lovely, so glad you won the competition. What a wonderful achievement. Am sorry however to hear your other sad news Kay...ps I thougth the photo looked just fine you dont look like a cut out gardener at all.

I must agree with you, Cazcat ... disappointing not to see the wonderful arbours in your garden though, Kay! ... No worries as I can see them on your GoY photos ... :o)

Kay, Just got home with my copy of Garden News and found you straight away. It's fantastic . . . I've just looked at photos of your garden on this site, and can see why you won! It's a brilliant design, especially the lovely idea to site the benches where the cats found the sunniest spot. :)))

Really well done, and good luck with coping with a house-ful of people.

Thanks again everybody - I went to work today to find my photo had been scanned, enlarged and copied then posted everywhere - being the boss revenge will be sweet!!
