Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Helianthus annuus 'Russian Giant'

Hey Sunflower, look behind you. It’s the Delta Airlines 777 from Minneapolis to Paris, flying at 35,000 feet!!! #sunflower #giant-sunflower #yellow #blueskies #mygardentoday 29/08/2019

No, Gary, I’m just obsessed with planes!!! I’ve even got an app so that I know what plane it is, where it’s come from and where it’s going 😳 It’s great fun! @scaryskates

I’ve got that app too as we’re on the Gatwick flight path. 🛫🛬 I like the idea of garden exits. I’ll try it out on Sunday 🤣🤣😘 @scaryskates

I’m trying to figure out what you do if you’re 5 mins from Blackpool airport. Air traffic controller? No, too far away! Fireman? Could be but you might need to be at the airport! Off site parking operative? Yes, definitely! I can just see you chauffeuring passengers to and from the airport 🤣🤣🤣 @scaryskates

I finally plucked up the courage to go up a ladder and take a photo of my giant #sunflower 😳 It’s towering over the runner bean arch and it’s almost reached the upstairs window! Sadly it’s facing away from the house but the neighbours have a perfect view!!! #grownfromseed #jacarandaraisedbed #giantsunflower #mygardentoday 23/08/2019
