Now that readers have been introduced to Dennis, the man who can do everything, I felt that he should 'appear' on the blog. So here he is, along with Steve and myself, yet again involved in an unlikely mission. I'd decided to establish an obelisk grove in the garden, to set off the wedding marquee site. So I had to get the job finished today. I'd 'planted' the slate pillars, which I bought from Blaenau Festiniog, in large plant pots, filling up with concrete on Monday. They were ready for planting today. I asked Steve to drive the digger and Dennis couldn't resist taking over operations. They do look rather good and are bound to appeal to Snake who is doing the photographs tomorrow. No idea why he's called 'Snake', but I'm told its something to do with his prowess in certain directions.
And after the grove was planted, and for something completely different, I nipped over to St Garmon's Church in Llanfechain to help with the flowers. One of the ways I keep in touch with my feminine side is flower arranging. Our good friend, Ann Markwick is in overall 'flowers' control, but I was roped in to do the pedestals. Just in case you don't believe me, I've appended a photograph of one of today's efforts. I arrange then in such a way that they can just be picked up and transported to the Wedding reception. The rest of the day was given over to beautifying the garden - finishing touches. Please don't let it rain.

Fair play Glyn, you have excelled your self.
Stick to family, forget the politics, no good will come out of it.
It's a no win game politics, stick to the loved ones!

Christopher - Sunday morning and we're half way through. Couldn't have gone better so far.

Miss Wagstaff - But I don't have your address.

VM - Hope you had your earplugs in. Last Quo concert I went to, I didn't hear properly for a week.

anon - You're right about politics of course - but there is an irresistability about it.
