When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

This will always make me think of you and Sam and taking ownership of Cambridge Botanic Gardens for a couple of hours 😂😘 @rachelbrooks @icedance

Same Jacq! Forever! Well of you and Sam cause I was already there! Think that sort of makes sense! 🤪😂 and didn’t you buy yours after that as well? Think you may have...still no sign of flowers on mine...

I did, so this is its first winter. I was so excited to see flower buds, especially as it had been growing in the shade of the aruncus so was a bit crooked and I had to splint it 🙈😬 I hope you see some soon but #theresalwaysnextyear @rachelbrooks

And it has the most wonderful scent too David 👌 Worth looking out for as it doesn’t take up much space 😊@davyc

I can’t wait for them to open Carol 😍 and yes, #daphne-day has a certain ring to it 🤩 Hey @ukgardentags why no #scratchnsniff or even #smell-o-vision yet? 😜😂 @carolgs @clipperty @rachelbrooks

Well why don’t we go the whole hog Jacq, and make it St Jacquelines Day?! 😉🤣 oh do you remember how fabulous the scent was at Cambridge BG? Could smell them way before we saw them! Just spectacular! 😍 and I checked mine...nuffink! 🙄 they’ll probably invent #smell-o-vision before mine gets any flowers! @carolgs @clipperty

Absolutely this time we will arrive in the garden in sun and with time to wander at will 😊 I mentioned to Rachel a round two sometime, and maybe a turn around the garden centre where I work ? X

No plans. Tom is working now so doesn’t have to move out every few months and comes home by train. That doesn’t mean I can’t come up with an excuse though! @rachelbrooks @icedance
