  I recognise that attitude.

but good score Raven - and veges are good - you can eat them      ...honest you can 




 (had forgotten this thread)

I just picked 2 big heads of broccoli and another bowl full of strawberries and my first raspberry

 

I'll share these strawberries.

oh I am shamed - that looks so lovely,     and your white walls are white,   eek  my house white walls are an interesting sheen of green  eek   I especially like the photo where you can see a needy in the background but I'm like that 



Driving home yesterday I noticed you can no longer see our house from the road - all you can see are trees 
I'd show you some photos (when I can find the cord that connects the camera to the computer - it's vanished  )  - my white wisteria is in full bloom right now and looks beautiful (or atleast I think so) will need a hard prune back though after it has finished as its almost impossible to walk under it, cool curtain.

I have a few seeds left from my collection I was selling, luckily too as I don't think any have self-seeded this year. Will have to create a special place for them for next season

I reckon you were thinking about what the photographers on here would be saying about setting up a shot 
and i could then imagine you rolling around on the grass until you find the best angle

there's some ignorant peeps out there eh. one of my neighbours got all excited when he saw them and wouldn't believe me when I told him they weren't opium 

I've still got seeds left. If they get stolen, then I'll start the poppie garden somewhere else where only me and my girls can see them and the neighbourhood will miss out on the flower show. Smiley

Hopefully I'll be able to capture a full bloom pic. It's not allowed to happen for 2 weeks though   eek 

One of my landlords (who is a perfectionist) told me I was supposed to plant the seeds in exact positions.
Me... naaaaaaaaaaaaaa I threw a heap in the dirt and did the 'wait and see' thing instead
