Is this quote reasonable??

That's ok. I get it. You could even put in a small tree like a crepe myrtle. Trees can add a nice depth. Anyway I'll shut-up now - it's your…

Hi WoH,
I really need to upload some pics of the garden 1 year on - but Picasa doesn't exist anymore and Google photos annoys me. I need to use some…

Yeah this weekend has been nice, the sun makes a real difference. I don't blame you, it's been (and still more to come) a freezing Winter!

Thanks HA! Glad you like it. We're loving it except the weather has been way too cold to be out there too much. At least we've passed the half way…

Hi Drew. I wonder if there would be a similar rot problem with these ones - hope not.
