When I moved into this place, I went to Bressingham. i couldn't fit another 3 inch plant pot into my car on the way home.

I also had a lot of plants mail order from them. I see that one of the younger generation has now started Bressingham plants, selling plants direct again.Bressingham Garden centres were taken over by a group.

I would be interested in a trip too.

Dad has been sent out of hospital today. I think he was too much aggro for the nurses. He is currently holding court, telling everyone how ill he is/was. He's not happy that I've banned him from driving for some weeks. This was after I found 3 months worth of medication he had not taken hidden in the kitchen cupboard.

New regime about to start.!!!!

SUNSHINE at last.

Lots to do in garden, then visiting Dad this afternoon, Supermarket tonight.

Mrs Garden and Kef, you will need your wellies tomorrow, the grass is so long and wet, the neighbours are losing cats in it....

I could have an auction in my house. All Mother in Laws treasures, safely boxed to go to Auction, now sister in law wants a final look through to see if theres anything else she wants

If they go back up to Newcastle, they are staying there. I've had enough wrapping,unwrapping, washing, rewrapping etc.

I might need fairygirls industrial staple gun to staple dad into bed. He thinks if his catheter accidentally fell out, and the continuous monitoring ecg leads fall off, he can come home. On the other hand, Mums had the best weeks sleep she's had in months.

Can You Identify These?

I have one on the garage  wall that hasn't got a single flower. A cutting taken from it on the pergola has lovely blooms. Both pruned  at the same time. No explanation as to reason why. This year's weird weather maybe?
