Hi all. Semi retired. Just got a job as a gardener. Always had an interest, but now need to pay more attention to plant names. Might need some help!

All trees are wonderful and cheer you up, but I think this silver birch is quite magnificent.

Wow!That keeps you busy ,lovely dogs but needs much excercise I should think.Are they easy to train I have heard different opinions of them.One lady has two and they have never been off leads and are aggresive to other dogs.Then others are friendly and sociable dogs.@rigracer

@ladylucy All 11/12 years old now and have a large run so exercise themselves. Easy to train cos they loved to do it. Never let any of mine off lead either. Never any problems with aggression. Soft as grease even with complete strangers or other dogs.
