Located all old illustrations by tipping the contents of every shelf and folder onto the bed and following the landslide onto the floor.

Of course, this is also Chealsea Garden Show time of year so its hard to concentrate on anything but thoughts of plants, rocks, trees and designs for my own Chealsea garden. Should I ever be let loose with gardeners and architects of my own any year soon - and actually be allowed to enter - I'd probabaly not win a gold medal but it would surely be a talking point... I'd like to see Alan Titchmarsh and Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen ponder the merits of my garden er, furniture and rustic sculptures on lunchtime TV.
