That's a normal drive for people in the country Dan, if we want to go to say Swane's it is 4 down and 4 back, should be nice drive during the week to miss the crowds.

Gawd, I LOVE this place! Has to be one of the most enticing rose nurseries I've seen, so many irresistible potted plants that it's dangerous. I'd have to stop at the nearest town and rob the bank.

Great! So looking forward to it. All the comments and your pics Maree have reminded me that I really should visit Silkies. Always been meaning to, just never got there.
