                      I went to the monthly meeting of the Local Gardening Club last night as there was a presentation with the title "Why I am a Plantaholic". The presentation was by a Professional Gardener Razvan Chisu, a Romanian, who's lived in the UK for years and really knows his plants. It was a great presentation and at the end he had some really nice plants for sale.
                      And, because it would have been rude not to buy some, I bought.....
