I blame Addict But in a nice way

Gosh when first saw title thought I was in the dog house!!!! Phew in the clear lol. 

I do love unusual stuff. Doesn't have to be a rare. Tulips are pretty bog standard just the one I mentioned is very different to the way a tulip usually looks.

I do dislike the fact that suppliers of plants seem to have decided what we want rather than the other way round. Going for something different will hopefully make them realise we gardeners like more of a selection......well this is my little crusade anyway

Damsons nearly ready. Damson cheese is the best! Can never make enough jars to last until the following year gets eaten too quickly.

Don't you just love weddings  

I did something similiar for a friends wedding using glass tumblers rather than milk bottles. Put a little bit of blue food colouring in the water which worked quite well.

What flowers is soooo hard tho. especially with the weather we have had in the last two years. Who knows what we will get! 

Cornflowers should be a pretty safe bet for the blue and would look so pretty with the cow parsley Dove mentioned. Those with some tulips would be perfect. You could grow yellow, white and Green Star tulips for variation in the bottles. This is Green Star...

Verdun you do make me chuckle. Angels playing harps I can believe but the rest of it?!    

Morning all.

Was sunny this morning, after very heavy rain last night, all night, but clouding over again and looks like more rain  Why smiley? Cos I don't have to work in it and all the plants are happy!!!!! 

To do, paperwork, sort seeds to send, go visit people.

Checked damson tree this morning. Nearly ready. Think next week will be damson jelly time my mouth is already watering at the thought  

Dove that sounds terrible. Glad you got it sorted but does make you wonder how many people just accept things and don't complain. Have to admit ours here seem pretty good.

Are you heading my way to see parents?
