We have a large garden....mostly grass ( being used as a football pitch right now ) and apple trees ( we have enough apples to start a small cider business ) !! But I'm pretty useless at growing flowers....that is until I became pals with the retired gardener next door..... every weekend he hands me armfuls of blooms to plant over the fence...what a star ! So today we cut a bunch of large daisies and took them round to his a say thanks
