    Other numbers are available but three is convenient as it takes a long time to load, dry and then unload and bag up the hops. They are also the best size for converting to houses.

    So if you fancy a challenge this one is still waiting.
    Any takers?

    That one isnít for sale as far as l could see, just boarded up to keep it secure and weatherproof.
    They are getting scarce now very seldom do we pass an unconverted oast, even google couldnít find me one.
    Found a single roundel conversation 2 bed for £500,000 and a 4 bed for £1.15 m, hope those chips of yours are solid gold.
    I have fond memories of the hop gardens on the farm l played on as a kid, love the smell too, there are still hops growing in the hedgerows on the farm 50 odd years since the gardens were grubbed out.

    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.

    Ok, l know everything in Texas is bigger! weíve all seen your hats.
    Those Lupins are gorgeous, our garden ones are still dozing till summer arrives. When we holidayíd in Iceland there were large swathes of multi coloured Lupins growing wild in very inhospitable looking conditions, really surprised me how tough they were.
    Iím looking forward to walking through woods completely carpeted with Bluebells in a week or two, smelling sweetly on a warm day, unforgettable.

    Yeah we have a lot of pride in Texas about size (shut up Alaska) but I can genuinely say that I've never heard a bluebonnet called a lupine.
    I guess you are technically correct but it just confirms that's why us 'Muricans have such a hard time understanding your "English".
    If you ever find yourself in Texas and get strange looks for calling them that, just tell them that I gave you a pass.

    The problem isnít English, thatís their Latin name.
    Description

    Lupinus texensis, the Texas bluebonnet or Texas lupine. There you go your own personal State flower.

    This is our Bluebell ....
    : Hyacinthoides non-scripta ....simply put a small type of Hyacinth.

    I hate to give Texans the reputation of always correcting those from England,
    but here, if you say "This is our Bluebell", this is what we are going to think:
