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.

    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.
