My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 05/07/2015 at 21:08

Oh the BBC knows how to relax me and get my energy back!  The summer concert from Vienna on BBC4 tonight could have been written for me.  "Peer Gynt" which I saved my pocket money for months to go and see in Glasgow with Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson in and Sibelius "Finlandia" and the Viennese waltz to dance all round my huge lounge at the end to!  What more could one ask?  I will tackle the garden with great enthusiasm tomorrow - in my raincoat if needs be.

At last we have had a decent amount of rain in Bristol so should have collected some in my waterbutts.  Weeds should pull out easy tomorrow or when i can get the energy to start.  All the excitement yesterday has left me drained so am taking it easy.   My youngest daughter took some great pictures of the family and spread them round on her fb page!

Port de Soller is lovely.  My children used to love the little railaway that ran along the front .  You could stop it anywhere to get on.  Harvesting is so satisfying when you have a good crop. GWRS!  Pics taken this morning.

Hello everybody after a lovely day with fourteen of my family.  Weather warm but cloudy today but rain forecast for this afternoon so must get out there.  The forecast is for three days of rain and it is sorely needed.  Pat your posts keep getting repeated two days running.

I see the common name for leucopogon is beard heath which makes sense as the Greek leucopogon means white beard so the fringes are the beard bit.  And being ericacious explains the heath bit.  It would not grow well in Bristol being we are so alkaline.

My patio set was a special offer with £70 off, nearly half price in the Guardian Newspaper shop summer sale.  I always look there first when shopping as I have always been delighted with my purchases and they do next day delivery for a small fee.  That little native shrub looks pretty.  I like scented flowers.

21 degrees and sunshine all day forecast with no rain so my visitors are in luck.  Off to bake 3 dozen fruit scones, tidy up and find some non gardening clothes to wear.
