Buried treasure

Posted: 29/11/2013 at 12:23

We live in a Regency house in Cheltenham, It used to have a 2 acre pleasure garden, kitchen gardens, piggery, stables etc .  Parts still remain, but sadly most of it is built on now. the only stuff I've dug up is a cinder path, the remains of an out house and lots of ginger bottles and broken crockery.

Whoever has my garden when I leave will be warned that there are 2 dogs and a cat buried under the lawn, although we have 2 dogs now, so may well be 4 dogs by then!!!

Oh dear, sorry to hear that Mark. we have grey skies here in Gloucestershire, but its supposed to be sunny tomorrow. Sadly, I cant do much gardening, or anything else this weekend. I put my pelvis out pulling up a rogue Mahonia plant and my "back lady"has banned me doing any thing heavy this week! Cant even ride the horse.Looks like I will be sorting out seeds and other fiddly jobs instead.

Have a good one

Christmas trees...

Posted: 25/11/2013 at 13:21

we gave up having trees at Christmas, our ceilings are very high and we always needed the tallest, and therefore  expensive trees. Plus the fact we usually go away over the holiday period so we do'nt even get to enjoy it. However, I always decorate the place with lots of real holly garlands and greenery from the garden, we have a Strawberry tree that has lovely colourfull berries and makes a nice Christmas'y display. so our home does'nt look like Scrooge in in residence!

Ironically, last year, some one very kindly dumped their discarded xmas tree in my garden, so I still ended up having to dispose of one!!
