Got 2 Manx marvels & some Kelsae Onions in so far, currently sat in the pub with a tray of mixed lettuce with me.

Thought they'd be a conversation starter:D

Fab! I don't think they'd appreciate a beer though (although I suppose the slugs would like it) ;)

Zigs, that "Spar" sign is driving me nuts. Is it from a grocery chain by any chance? I think it is. But I'm not sure.

Yep, it used to be a spar shop over 20 years ago, the new spar shop is over the road where Woolworths used to be.

Are the flowers "planted" over the window, @zigs?
They're artificial ones that the shop threw out. Weaved what I think might be a Jasmine vine into the trellis, hopefully that'll look nice :)

Had some offers of Ferns from friends coming to the open day next week :)

Have you seen those frames/boxes with the succulents planted in them that you can hang vertically? If you're there a while, maybe you could snag some bits and pieces of succulents to create something like that over the window. Then again, a Jasmine vine is more cold hardy.

There's a thought, love succulents :)

Driving me mad that the roofs are covered with them in Bridport and I can't get to them :D

Not a good pic as they're quite low growing, but a lot of them.

Look nice when they flower :)
