Feeling better!


By anita


For the past two weeks I have been poorly – either a very heavy cold or the dreaded ‘flu! I am staring to feel a little bit better now – thank goodness!
We are both enjoying just ’pottering’ around the garden at the moment – next week I will start taking my cuttings so will have to condense everything down in the greenhouses! I was thrilled to see I have a lovely bud coming on my Polianthes tuberosa – I have brought it indoors in case it gets nibbled! Can’t wait for the flowers to open!! Have you grown them?

Barry had to get rid of the tomato plants on the allotment yesterday – the dreaded blight got them! I am watching the plants in the garden like a hawk as they are just beginning to give a delicious crop now! I am growing 12 different varieties – here is a small bowl of them – Green Zebra,Sungold,SunBelle,Black Cherry ,Premium Sun Cherry,Old Ivory Egg and Orange Santa!

We had to have our photo taken this morning for the local paper – we were awarded 1st Prize for our front garden in Woking in Bloom!!! Chuffed to bits we are !!!

What marvellous news ....Many congrats to you and Barry. You do have a beautiful garden. Lucky Woking:::))))))))

Those tomatoes look very tasty indeed...I've heard that Black Cherry is particularly nice.

Am looking forward to seeing a pic of your tuberose when its in bloom.

Sorry to hear you have been unwell, glad you are on the mend. I have Brian not well....We thought he had a bad reaction to some insect bites (they find him very tasty)....but he has he is feeling very sorry for himself his poor face and neck on one side is all raw looking and swollen and his ear makes him look like a boxer who has been a few rounds...on the losing side.:))

Hello AA - I am sorry to hear Brian has Shingles - it is horrid!! I hope he feels better soon! I had shingles on my face a few years ago- looked like the phantom of the opera- and it was very painful!
Give him my best wishes please!

Are my photos showing? I can't see them!

I've just caught up on your garden pics Anita and I'm not surprized you've won an award, theyre beautiful, wish I lived near enough to see it. I've also made a note of your chocolate cake recipe. I'm looking for your lemon drizzle recipe now:-)
