      1. Thanks Barb, I look forward to your comments. I am really excited about this year and all the fun I intend to have. Hope all is well with you. I’m have given a geranium to Frankie but it’s been so hot all my cuttings and transplants have suffered badly, sorry!! Happy to try again in autumn if it does not survive.


    1. I have been looking after the geraniums and one of them has even flowered, the other is looking a little sorry for itself but if anyone can give it the kiss of life its Barb 🙂 She picked the up on Wednesday after knit and bitch.
