My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 11/08/2015 at 09:06

I had two pipes leading to two of the washhand basins come apart under the floor boards and we did not know it till the water came up in the bathroom through the floorboards.  We were living on a raft!  Took years to get it all sorted.  Hope you get it all done quickly Pat.

TY you, all you lovely people.  I am enjoying my birthday immensely sitting here reading all your lovely messages waiting for the hot water for my bath though it is warm enough today to have a cool one.  Perhaps not at 87.  Keep having to remind myself of that!

Happy Marion's Birthday today!

Flumpy the tree friend is a he - he of the small garden which is so beautiful and who brings the plants that grow too big for his garden to me for my very large garden.  He is very pleased that Crocus delivered on time and that I will have flowers this year.

Radish will be up in days in this weather and you should be eating it in a week or two. flumpy.  Another early birthday present has just arrived from my friend - a myrtle tree because I admired his so much.  It has three flowers open and scores of buds and smells lovely.  Here it is having a drink.

Ladies, it is not till tomorrow, my birthday I mean but TY anyway.  My birthdays do seem to last about a week nowadays what with all the people who are late too!.  Raining in Bristol too as forecast which is good as my water butts were all dry yesterday.  Frumpy lots of people have had trouble growing sweet peas this year so we have done well with ours.  I do hope I spot my pot full on "Love your Garden" show tomorrow evening at 8pm.  I might do some housework today as it is raining and many visitors are imminent.  I would of course rather be gardening.
