MOB rants

Posted: 08/03/2013 at 14:32
Well I haven't got a rant at the moment. Didn't feel like moaning when I was going through the checkout....very unusual, that's the place that always gets me. I usually sprout horns when I see how many shopping trolleys are infront of me.....and especially when the shopper is chatting merrily to the check out girl.......well I had none of that today, I was All smiles and deliriously happy.....mmmmm....I wonder what is wrong with me today????

Hi Pam, enjoyed looking at your pics and all those cuttings......I live in a flat but have a balcony and sort of garden space, I took about 15 cuttings last summer from trailing and upright geraniums, I left them on my bathroom and window sill, they are doing really well. I have them in small plant pots, do you think I should pot them on again, was just going to harden them off when it got warmer and put them straight out, can't upload pics from this device but it is nice to see other members piccies, barb

Garden Achievement

Posted: 07/03/2013 at 19:40
Hi Brumbull, hello everybody haven't been on the site for a little while, bin busy this week, just starting to slow down now. My achievement is that I enjoy gardening, up to a few years ago you wouldn't have gotten me near a garden except in a deckchair! Couldn't stand all those creepy crawlies and and all the other things you find in a garden, now some of them are my buddies, some I tolerate, others I politely acknowledge and side step. But all in all I think we all get on quite well, some achievement!!! I love going out into the garden with my shovel and wellies....bliss.

Depression and how gardening saved me

It's been good to share these things on the forum and to know that some of us have had breakdowns, depression, grief and whatever else and how gardening has been an instrument in healing and recovery, it's beautiful isn't it.
