TV gardens & Trigger June 2010

Firstly thank you to all who have kept enquiring about Trigger’s health. After Flamborough, we took him to the vets and he has been X-rayed. He has extra calcium growing on his spine that is trapping his nerves. This is called Spondylosis and is similar to sciatica. The vets have changed his tablets and now he is not in as much pain

As a Freelance Private Gardener I sometimes work at some really nice homes, some of the gardens I have created from scratch (One has featured in Yorkshire Life) and some I can only claim to maintain.
Last month I did some work at a house like you see on the tele. It was a “Clearance” job; the grass was two feet high and a Rose bush was about 12 by 12 foot. The Lady brought me out a coffee. Latter I had to go inside for water for the weed killer I then wished I had not had the coffee! The kitchen walls were black with plaster falling off. The floor was full of empty, but not washed milk bottles the whole place was filthy and made me feel sick! TV program yeh ~ Grime busters ~ I could taste the coffee all night. I used Listerine and had a few Whiskies but I could still taste it. That never happened to Alan Titchmarsh!

So another football world cup and England flags abound. As I know next to nothing about football and care even less who wins, I asked someone why they were putting an England flag on their French car? “Cause I support England” came the reply “So if you want to support England, why not buy an English car?” I asked?“ But this is football” enough said.
