Hope you all had the best day ever, been thinking about you lot today enjoying the company, and i'm sure the excellent food.
Hope you have got some good tales for all of us. :shock:
Were you lot talking about me at about 12.30 as my ears were really burning, i suppose it would have been things like, He is a real gentleman and the like. :wink:
Piglet hope that tusk didn't spoil the day for you.

Kind regards Old Herbaceous.

Of course we were talking about you Old Herb, as well as everyone else.

We had a great day - the weather was perfect, the food was excellent, the show was first class and the company was exceptional! Even the OH's enjoyed it, although they clearly still think there's something adrift in our genetic construction.

We're all tired but happy bunnies.

Hi OH, we had a fabulous day and in the end there was me, Seedling, the Piglets, Tigger and Lyndon, Jenny Green and Johnboy plus a surprise appearance from Wellie and Paul. The weather was great, the picnic even better and I've emailed the photos to Piglet so he may be able to post some of them on here.

I don't recall talking about you at 12.30 I'm afraid, unless you've changed your name to game pie, road kill quiche or lemon tart...

Hey Old herbaceous !

It must of been when Piglet told Paul that your ears were burning, and that you could get cream for it now....

Well OH, we got there at 9am and were parked 3 cars from Chantal, right next to the gate and 10 yards from toilets, quality indeed. We all met up at 12.30 and had a feast fit for kings with all sorts from lemon tarts to game pie, red wine to chicken tikka wraps, home made breads to muffins. Enough to stick a skinny mans ribs together. We all had such a whale of a time tentative arrangements have already been made by some of us to have a "weekender" at the Harrogate Autum show. Anybody is more than welcome.

OH, Piglette (Johnboys new name for Mrs P)was talking about you at that time as Tigger brought her two lucious pots of plump corriander that were magnificent indeed:D

The plant swap went really well with people going home with thousands of pots courtesy of Johnboy and things of all description from everybody else. Tigger even brought us all little goodie bags.

All those of you who couldnt come or went on other days you missed out on a treat, especially the sight of Piglette walking to the car park carrying a 5" high, huge standard fuschia and me in my shorts.

Glad to hear you got your standard fuschia Piglet & Piglette. Hope you got a bargain!
I had a brilliant day although Johnboy was hairier than I thought he'd be. It was great to meet everyone.
I came back with 15 plants and a concrete tortoise. :oops: Don't know what possessed me!
Oh yes and we talked about EVERYONE in great DETAIL.

Postby Johnboy » Mon May 15, 2006 2:37 am

Having spent one of those days that will go into the memory bank I have been home, eaten a fabulous meal cooked by my Daughter I drifted into sleep.
Having had a descent kip and at 2am I could and would willingly do it all again.
I was wonderful to see them all and especially Jenny Green who has been my sparring partner for as long as I have been on the Forum (about 4 years now)
My thanks to Wellie for a wonderful lunch.
I have for sometime thought just plain Mrs Piglet was wrong as she is a super girl in her own right and decided to call her Piglette which gives her her own persona.
Welcome the one and only PIGLETTE!!!
Wellie, Paul and myself found that by rather badly parking our cars we could assure a wonderful little picnic area and a few hours later it so proved. Lyndon made the most fantastic Game Pie you ever did spy. I was magnificent! Tigger gave us all a wonderful little 'Party Bag' and one of the things in mine was a packet of Gherkin Seeds and I meant to buy one earlier in the year and clean forgot so I am totally indebted to her. Glad that Seedling was driving as this meant Chantal got to the show instead of watching the Aircraft at London Airport!!
Piglet and Piglette a nicer couple you couldn't wish to meet. By the way Piglet the Fuchsia was 5 FEET tall not inches!! What a wonderful sight both the carrier and the carried. Who's looking after it when you both skive off to France soon. I'm sorry Piglet you'll have to stay home and I'm afraid I'll have to take you place!! Have a wonderful time you lucky Buggers.
Well I think it's time for my medication. This consists of a brew with a liberal lacing of the 'Amber Nectar.'
What a wonderful day. Thank you each and every one of you for making it so.
Sincerely, Johnboy.

Lots of Fun

Postby Wellie » Mon May 15, 2006 9:05 am

It was SO lovely to meet you all at last.

The party bag was 'inspired' Tigger, made me giggle...
And thank you SO much for the brollies Chantal, luckily not needed yesterday !
Thanks JB for the modules and pots, and it was particularly GOOD parking, no?!

Seedling, thanks for the Peperoncino plant, the cucumber variety I gave you is Telegraph I think...

Piglet, thanks for the Red Hot Cherry plants (and the greenfly, cheers mate!) If you PM me your address, I'll send you and Piglette some of those chocky ginger bickies to try. Those blueberry muffins were ace by the way !

Paul really enjoyed the day too, and is determined to contribute to the forum himself from now on as "The Trousers".

We had lots of fun, thank you all for a lovely day.

Hello you lot

I'm so chuffed you all had a fab time. I was sitting on the lottie yesterday, thinking about you all while I was pulling out couch and bindweed roots on my next bed. Sorry that I missed it but, hopefully, will make the next one.

The food sounds fab, blueberry muffins too, my favourite. I know that the Grock was thinking about you all too.

I hope that JB behaved himself and didn't wear you all out!!!!

Once again, glad you all enjoyed yourselves

You too and Piglette, Chantal and anyone else who fancies a day out.

There's a show on at Boddelwydden Castle in North Wales over the Bank Holiday weekend so am hoping to go to that with the family. My brother, his wife and my mum may be going too so that will be nice.

The Old Man thought just me and him would go and stop overnight in the hotel but it was going to cost nearly £200 for one night so we're not doing that. The castles only about an hour away from us so it doesn't matter.

Still, i've got GW live coming up, my mum bought me a ticket for Tatton Park for my birthday treat so will go there with her and then there's Malvern Autumn show when me and hopefully Grock will be able to make it. Loads to look forward to so it's all systems go!!! :twisted:
