Glad to hear it as it’s just been scoffed by a three year old?! @scaryskates

Lovely pic. I did think it was a strawberry planet 🌎 floating around the cosmos at first 🙄😆 Love your worktops too ☺️

That’s brilliant- never thought of my worktops like that before @susanhumphrey333 😂 (they are some crazy composite stuff that you can sand if they get scratched, better than wood and not as cold as granite)

Oh yes. I saw that when my daughter was planning her new kitchen. She didn't go for it in the end, but I was impressed. I'm not due a new kitchen as it's been done, so I've missed the boat I think and will be nearly 80 by then 😂😂😂

Oh yes when we renovated the house from a 70’s nightmare we did everything with the understanding it would “see us out” 😂 @susanhumphrey333

I'm hoping the same thing!. Lots of flowers now so fingers crossed.

@sprout indeed fingers crossed - going to net them tomorrow so I'm not feeding the birds - and I need to remember to water more than last year to "plump" them up! Thank goodness we aren't on a water meter 👍

I'll be netting mine too. They should be producing very soon.👍
