Keep me away from garden centres…
It’s difficult working because I don’t see daylight hours when at home, I can’t even comment on which birds are visiting my garden because I have absolutely no idea!
Saturday I had a trip to Dobbies with my mum and nan to check out the Christmas decorations and I wanted to pick up some seeds… Yes, that was the plan. Honest it was. It didn’t quite work out that way though sadly… I bought new Christmas decorations, as I’ve had the same colours for the past few years now… This unfortunately bumped up the cost immensely, so what should’ve been a £5 visit, turned into £60!
Ok so there were some very cheap ready made pots that I also bought, but they were only £5 and £7, so hardly much! (worth it just for the wooden pot and nice ceramic glazed pot) But I do have some nice pots by the front door now, one with herbs (Chive, sage, marjoram and thyme and the other with an assortment.
I also got a selection of 6 Hebes for £5, a pink Jasmine for the princely sum of £1!!!! Oh and an adorable tiny orchid destined for my desk at work – it may never make it though!! 😉
The seeds I bought were Harebells, field Scabious and Peas.
The weather today has been generally shocking, it did eventually clear up long enough for me to plant the Hebes I bought in some pots, pot up the Hellebores that finally arrived too and take a couple of quick snaps of things which caught my eye. Curse my procrastination and assumption that today’s weather would also be fine…
Well, I think you can guess I was wrong!
Next Saturday is the beginning of the run in for Christmas, I’m off to Southwell for the annual WI carol service, I may attempt photos if the weather is nice. Then on Sunday I should be getting the Christmas tree…
I’m fully booked until Christmas now, and really must find my hair appointment card, I have no idea when I’m due!
