Hello. Back home, not too shattered.
Not seen myself on tele this time- found ourselves looking for my headscarf instead of paying attention to the prog! Only missed out seeing a couple of gardens by the look of it. I had a hard time with daughter wandering off & then having to wait for OH to finish taking his pics. He soon learnt to push to the front, just as everyone else was doing! Still there's friday as well, as some of the filming I saw them doing wasnt shown tonight, & will be in shot for that! Didnt actually 'see' anyone 'famous' this year, nor bump into anyone- long story..... Have an old video tape (daft as now no player) of one year at Tatton with daughter striding purposefully across shot behind MD looking for moi, who'd apparently wandered off somewhere.
OH was well behaved! We got through the entrance & daughter had words & all went well! Seriously the weather was totally the opposite of the forcast & although we'd all worn wellies we could have coped with walking shoes/boots as not wet underfoot at all.
Ok I did end up with a couple of extra plants, but was pretty restrained. However will soon take delivery of my birthday pressie- a very, very posh coldframe, at a whopping show discount. Then there was the fudge, all eaten, the oil, the sunhat (me), the bakeware (OH), cactus (daughter).
OH talked me out of buying my usual calendar- apparently they are going to do me a plant one of our own..... this I must see, am not holding my breath.
So am now busy deciding where the new plants are going to end up. Got sweetpea & viola seeds, the latter will need sowing now, so that's on the job list already.
I'll catch up with posts. Tomorrow daughter & me to collect our new spex & do some more retail therapy, non garden this time. Tatty bye for now, J.
