Good Friday Scout


Happy Easter everyone.  We have scaled down the gardening plans for this weekend due to the cold.  Woe.  Instead I think we shall be tidying the flat, visiting the pub and venturing out for a day of fun on Steve’s birthday on Monday.  Here is some good stuff to keep you entertained this weekend.

Hooray for Friday.  We have lots of potential plans for this weekend. Maybe a ramble in Henley tomorrow and maybe the Great Dixter Dachshund Day on Sunday.  The garden could also do with some attention!  Here are my favourite finds this week:
