    My Fingers Are So Green They Are Gonna Need Pruning

    I've always enjoyed my time in the garden. Mum was always out in the garden doing something- the only thing she never did was cut the grass; that was dads "job." I've always enjoyed going into the greenhouse, first thing in the morning - that smell of the warm earth- mmmmmh...
