Come the end of the year it's going to look lovely if your garden in Scotland is anything to go by, just a pity that your pod is not there

Oh yes Davey. But to be honest, they will have more need of it on that windy moor in Angus!

Best of luck and I`m sure your dreams will come true, looking forward to seeing the results once you can get started.

Somehow I missed your blog on moving south, Karen! 🙁

I've just this minute come across this one! I'm sure you will make a lovely garden in your new house, like you did in your old house in Scotland!

You seem to have bought a lovely selection of plants so you must have some great ideas! Looking forward to seeing how you get on with it during the year ahead.

Best of luck! 👍🏻
