oh very much so - don't even know how to say them , they are a reminder of the woods near us - and the cobbles a reminder of the beach in the garden also

Morning Paul...we've had a few harsh frosts of late too...in a way it's good to get rid of the bugs, lots of plants were being chewed, and I was spraying my garlic spray, and yet i've got Clematis, sprouting from the old wood, how crazy is that lol...:)))

Morning Sue , That's awesome!!!! I Also spray Garlic!! Clematis coming form the old wood is excellent :))))))))))))))))
