I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Gardener's World

Friday 15th May 2020

Have watched Gardener's World for years.

 So sad (genuinely) tonight to hear that Nigel has died.



  1. Sir Hugh - We heard on the radio on Thursday morning and like you were sad to hear the news. Monty said that Nigel was now part of the garden buried with lots of tennis balls. Regular viewers will understand.

    Have you read Monty’s book ‘Nigel - my family and other dogs’?

  2. afoot - thanks for that. Another book to go on my to-read pile.
