Boston ivy

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 23:28

I certainly wouldn't grow Boston Ivy...that's more for a mansion that employs staff to see to it...

..I like to try something different that you don't see everywhere and wonder if you might like this one... especially as you will be painting your wall a pale shade of green.... This one is evergreen with dark green leaves, and white flowers... self clinging... and not aggressive....   see what you think...

old friend of mine loved him and threw her knickers on the stage with her phone number written on them.  She was very excited to get a phone call but not so excited when it turned out to be one of the roadies

..for Spring flowering I like these... Geranium machorrizum in shades of white and mauve/purple... I like to plant them together for a dainty effect...

Favourite Christmas Song and Carol?

Posted: 06/12/2014 at 20:14

O Holy Night....surprisingly, by the incredible Michael Crawford

alternatively, I like an ethnic version... Jana Mashonee
a quite beautiful rendition I think...

..of course, with rising dental costs.... won't be long before we might be singing this...

Salino what did you order from BeaLes? Did you see the black Friday weekend half price offers? I have ordered Jacqueline de pre and one other! Can't think now and if I come out of this posting I'll lose it!  It sounded Hawaiian!

hi Beaus Mum,

sorry I've only just seen your message here... I like Aloha very much...grew that some years ago... don't know your other one...

I've got a few on the way including if I remember...

Souvenir de la Malmaison

Octavia Hill

hope yours do well for you...
