Yesterday we were on telly for the first time!    Some time ago we were asked to be part of a 60 Minute Makeover on ITV.   John Amabile, the Glasgow interior designer, made over a house in Blackford, Wales for a lady with serious health issues.  With great difficulty walking and breathing, not to mention a very bad phobia about insects, Carol rarely spent time out of her house.   We were asked to be part of it because the programme wanted to change her garden so that she would use it and they asked to use items from Twice to dress the outside dining area.   John transformed the garden into a Mediterranean feeling terrace and cleverly used faux grass and hedging, together with gravel and non-flowering plants to keep insects to a minimum.  We sent one of our pretty covered baskets, our ever popular tin plates, French bee glasses (you see, even the insects in Carol's new garden are fake!) and, just in case, a wasp trap.
