I am very happy to announce that Duncan and his partner Barbara became the parents of a beautiful baby boy yesterday morning.  To my secret delight, he looks exactly like Duncan did at the same age – and I have subversive plans to let him guddle about with soil, play with the hose, and sow seeds when he is old enough – in the hope that my family may yet, one day, produce another gardener.

      Thank you, Jane. I am simply amazed at the number of genetic markers that seem to have come through, but babies change all the time. Hope he’s an absolute little devil.

  5. Congratulations Bean, lovely news. I’m sure he will have a great garden knowledge, with you as his Grannie. :love: :rose: :love: :rose:

      Will have to be more subtle this time, and allow lots of guddling in the mud. Did not imbue a love of gardening in ANY of my children.

    Many thanks to everyone for your good wishes. Dylan weighed in at 9 lbs 7 ozs on Tuesday – and I have secretly re-named him as “Beefy” – only hope I don’t actually call him this within earshot.
