    SBK (or stronger?) - please don't judge!

    I can relate to your problems as cutting grass with me is too much, everything has to be sitting down to get done. If another project pops up then the other gets left.

    My poor Hebe!..

    Just a wee update. The Hebe was toast. I left it until way into spring but no signs of life and it had to go. Replaced it with a nice wee Acer.
