Carry On, Jeeves: (Jeeves & Wooster)
Carry On, Jeeves: (Jeeves & Wooster)
Price: 4.49

5.0 out of 5 stars P G Wodehouse books, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ever since Stephen Fry recommended P G Wodehouse, I've read all the Blandings stuff I can get and now I've started on the Jeeves and Wooster stuff. I've got the full dvd set and the books are proving to be brilliant. I've downloaded two more omnibus books to my kindle and can't wait to get into them. Not only are the books entertainingly funny, but also give an insight to the social history of the era (inter-war period).

Mind you, I am biased. I've always loved the William books. However, after buying the dvd of the recent tv series, with Daniel Roche, for my grandchildren, I can't get enough. Unfortunately I think I've now read the lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic story from PGW, 4 Jun 2014

Yet again, the Empress of Blandings is under threat of being underhandedly treated by rivals in order for her to lose the fattest pig contest, along with the usual love trist. But it all turns out well in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, innocent fun., 27 May 2014

Great to read these books again. They were originally for adults anyway. So funny in an innocent sort of way. My 1950s school memories were rekindled, as nothing had really changed from when tne books were first written.


Weeds: The Story of Outlaw Plants

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for wildlife gardeners, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very interested in nature and I garden for wildlife. Wildflowers that some people regard as 'weeds' (and that is their right to do so) are the mainstay of the flora in my wildlife garden, along with more 'cultivated' varieties. So to read about where many of these plants originated is fascinating to me. It lets me know I'm on the right track. I'd recommend this book to all those interested in wild plants and wildlife in general. I read it as an ebook on an original Kindle, so probably missed out on any quality illustrations, but this didn't detract from the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Man plaque, 2 Feb 2014

This review is from: ROUND GREEN MAN WALL PLAQUE
The plaque arrived well on time, was extremely well packaged to keep it safe, and is a sturdy, robust item made of strong stuff. It is ideal for outdoors and is a good size and pleasing green finish. Will use the company again when I need anything else of this nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy plants, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Planted the young Rosa canina plants in winter when I received them. They look healthy and strong and have grown since being planted. Plenty of leaf buds, and some leaves. This is a climbing plant and so needs planting where it can entwine round other trees, bushes etc.

Strong, easy to drill signs that are clear and to the point. Ours are on a wooden fence outside our house on a private road and seem to be doing the job effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for wildlife lovers, 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't read all the book yet, as I like to read a chapter at a time because they are all self-contained ie: each one about a different animal.
What I have read has been very interesting and puts over well each person's love of their particular animal, and why they are so passionate about it. It's a hard book to put down really, but I make myself leave it for a while and this increases my appetite!
