@alan1111 93??? Wow! You really have a knack of getting your plants to flower! It’s a proper heavy scent isn’t it. Lovely but I can’t begin to imagine what 93 smelled like 🤪

I’m with you both @cyndi @kez001uk when we moved here knowing I’m not getting any younger we opted for not too large a garden. It was all grass when we arrived - it shrinks every year! Life is good with a garden!
