    My online name is.....Lissa :) No surprises in this group. I'll send you a "friend request".

    Have a look at the Garden Visit group if you would like to check out other peoples gardens each month. All very casual but you need to be part of the group to receive the emails with addresses.

    There's lots of great groups covering all sorts of topics you might be interested in along with blogs etc.

  • welcome Rob :)
