Well, the show is now over, I started this post on Saturday, and I've been so busy since, and it's not until now (Tuesday) that I've been able to finish part one.

There's been some hectic plant related things going on lately, and it's been an absolute hoot.  But more on that soon... I promise,

Happy Gardening,

Hi, I'd love it if you'd make a comment. I enjoy hearing what you think and all comments are read, and replied to, to the best of my ability at the time.

Happy Gardening :)
