Hydrangea

Posted: 12/03/2013 at 21:57

This is a hydrangea Annabelle last year in my garden. I have got several now as they are very easy to propagate. I have got them growing in both sun and shade and they seem to perform well.

 They brighten up a dull corner.

Morning All.

I see the conversation is as usual didn't know that dressing gowns had doors Geoff.

The cat is driving me mad. She has found a bit of wire tie from the printer packaging and is tearing up and down the hall, batting it around, you would never believe she is 16.

Nothing of great excitement planned today. Oh is going on a tour round a brewery tonight with his domino mates, nuff said.

Catch you all later.

Favorite tomatoes

We grow gardeners delight for salad, nice and sweet, just big enough to pop into your mouth whole, always had good results, so tend to return to them each year.. We will also be growing piccolo tiny toms this year, got some already through this year, very sweet.

We also grow something like. Alicante, Shirley or Money Maker for cooking and chutney making. All very good croppers. We do grow them all in the greenhouse, never been very lucky growing outside, but I suppose it depends on where you live and if you have a sheltered, sunny spot in your garden.

New printer successfully installed feel quite pround of myself, lets see how long this one lasts

OH had a small operation to remove a cyst  on his head 10 days ago, 2 more larger ones to go. Didn't think to mention it. Sense prevailed at the surgery and the nurse decided she could fit him in for his blood tests today, so he doesn't have to go back tomorrow, thank goodness. It's a 5 mile round trip.

We had scrambled egg on toast for lunch, and very nice it was too.

Got to go to SIL later to drop off her birthday pressie for tomorrow, hope the snow holds off, we keep getting heavy showers.

Am I using too many smileys?

Morning peeps, just.

Waiting for my new printer to be delivered sometime today. Have uninstalled the old one, well not so old, but knackered, what do I do with it now?. It looks brand new, not happy.

Had quite a lot of snow overnight, could hear it beating on the windows, but it is slowly going, bright sunshine, but b***** cold.

Oh has just gone of to see the nurse to have a few stitches removed from his head, has to go back tomorrow for a blood test, couldn't fit him in on same day so 2 journeys what a pain, in more ways than one.

Some of our seeds are up, the piccolo tomatoes, gardeners delight and some flower seeds, makes you wonder if we will ever be able to plant things out.

Thanks Dean, that cyclamen arrangement will look lovely on my windowsill.

Did you have a few too many bevvies last night? take things quietly today after your fry up, the best cure for a hangover.

Morning All and Happy Mothers Day to all Mums out there, hope you get lots of flowers and choccies. Going to see my M at about 11 ish.

Didn't realise my last posting would cause such a debate, my 5 mins of fame.

Not a very nice morning here, snowy drizzle if there is such a thing.

I've been to Bunny in Nottinghamshire, near to where I used to live, a very nice little place, or it was when I last visited a long time ago.

Thanks for your comments on HP printers, I now have 2 full ink cartridges for the Kodak, friend has one so will give them to her. Hopefully I will have more luck with this new one.

Have a nice day.

Geoff. - I've ordered a HP all in one printer, the same brand as I had previous to this load of rubbish, had it for 8 yrs, had the Kodak for 2 and I've never been happy with it. only got the cheapest model as I don't use it a lot, but it's handy to have. Should be delivered by Wednesday.

Daughter and partner came to see us yesterday evening with MD flowers, a lovely bouquet of roses and lilies + card. They can't come tomorrow as they are away for the weekend..

Nothing on TV to watch, will have to see what we have got recorded.
