Steve and I

I dosed myself up on pseudoephedrine and paracetamol to attend the BMX seeding round at the London Olympics this week.  It was a bit of a struggle, but well worth it.  The garden planting was just incredible but because I wasn’t well we didn’t explore the whole site.  We have some photographs to show in a few days of what we did see.

Being bed ridden gave me an opportunity to catch up with Gardener’s World and time to potter about on the internet.  Here’s the good stuff:
