I am so releived I am not alone with monty getting on your thrupness Great phrase
That's a lovely thought Bunny - roses. I love magnolias, but I would like a tree but no one has asked, well not me Probably not this year, baby, house hunting stuff uses all their money which I don't mind.
It seems Mothering Monday is back on - son come in and says he'll be with us Monday evening and daughter is coming after work It' s just a time to have my famly together. It seems we are skyping on Sunday as well - things move on without prompting so now I'm smiles again.
Not checked for ages but I have 1256 reviews now Can't find the thread geoff
Sounds as though they all love you and are thinking of you, Rosa. That's what it's all about isn't it?
Got a global email at work a few days ago from the horti department who offer planted flower baskets for such occasions saying 'It's not too late for Mother's Day'. My comment was that it is about 16 years too late for me! Sorry - not meant in anything other than a jocular way. Made my work colleagues laugh.......
GW is just a gardening show
Does the finger still hurt Glyn?
Excellent idea - I'll buy myself some flowers, but after Sunday when they will be selling them off cheap!
Why not buy yourselves a plant/fruit bush or something for your garden/lottie that you love and are nurturing.
If you wrap plaster round your sore finger and the next it will support sore finger till it is more confortable. Bl**** difficult to use keyboard though
Bunny will we still have cake and a roaring fire?
I am really bad at buying anything for myself....sigh.
And I really must get myself some new shoes (it's desperate as my work ones are in tatters) and office clothes so should take myself off to Clarks Village at Street this weekend.
I HATE clothes shopping, especially shoe shopping.
Derek, that was interesting about Jethro Tull. In our charity quiz last night one of the questions was "who invented the seed drill?"
Did anyone watch GW or have you all recorded it? I was expecting a load of happy bunnies and lots of GW chat. Why does Joe Swift always design in straight lines? I thought a cottage garden would lend itself to curves and colour - but not according to Jo. Monty's veg garden is so tidy I find it a bit soulless, but it is empty at the moment. Why does my veg garden always have weeds? No, don't answer that one, it's because I don't weed it often enough!
I am sure it is not just him Liz. And not entirely organic either. I thought veg beds should be prepared by now so that manure is being assimilated.
I don't have a telly, B-L, but there is a thread about the new GW prog.
I only get plants - this year I am getting my mum a skirt - she's 90. Bunny if there is wine I'll still join you. never held with cut flowers. the one year when he was about 8 my eldest son insisted I wanted a parrot - OH managed to persuade him a picture would do. he he
Can still do wood burner and that on Sunday though Will we have cake?
thanks for saying that Goldi - i know they do- it was just the moment
My veg beds have manure put on them late autumn to be worked in in the spring but manure comes from my horses who eat a lot of hay full of wildflower seeds - which aren't wildflowers but are weeds in the veg garden. Seeds seem to survive the rotting process.
