thunbergia, will twine itself up trellis or tumble
over hanging baskets in a sunny, sheltered spot until

Other stunning additions to the border which do

If you're not into brash and bold, you can opt for the
softer hues of summer phlox in a variety of colours,
from white to deep pink, some of which have
variegated leaves.

muscles if you don’t use

them you lose them".

In this publication you may find the odd!!!! Spoll-
ing misstock, typing error or where you find the
grammar is not quite as it should be. That is due to
a condition l have called dyspraxia similar to dys-
lexia, people with this tend to spell phonetically
and sometimes l miss the last letters of words due
sometimes to the speed my brain (yes l do have
one) is working basically it means “I am playing
all the right notes but not necessarily in the right
order” to quote Eric Morecambe. If my malaprop-
isms amuse you that’s fine by me we all need a
laugh. The word comes from Mrs Malaprop a
character in Sheridan's play The Rivals who mis-
uses words in this way.
