By joebell


hi, this is my first blog , and i would just like to say i enjoy all the photos and comments ,i have got to know some lovely folk and enjoy reading the blogs, i have not been active on grows on you for a few weeks as both my wife and i have not been very well but we are both on the mend and enjoying the garden. we have had to give up the allotment as it was to much for us i am in my seventies and lucy is not far behind,we both have heart trouble and have been told to take it easy, but i can not stop gardening and spend my days in the house garden and love to be busy. i belive that fresh air and pottering about in the garden is the best tonic in the world, we have just put a pool in the back garden and are looking forward to seeing all the bedding plants in bloom ,lucys baskets are filling out nicely, and the busy lizzies in my gipsy cart are starting to bloom, the front garden is looking like it will explode with colour soon,and i look forward to seeing every ones garden on goy.all the best to every one,

Sorry to read you've given up the allotment, perhaps you could grow some fruit & veg in garden pots? I agree with everyone, nothing better than being out in the garden. : o ))

It's true. Gardening is the best medicine. You forget everything else when you're in the garden and time no longer has any meaning. Hope you are both feeling better now.

Hi Joebell, nice to meet you:-) Isn't it funny how you keep meeting people on here you haven't met before? and I see you have been on since 2007! Glad you're both recovering now. I sometimes go out reluctantly to water the garden, feeling lazy. Once I'm out there...I notice I am're better tonic:-) I love you doggie picture by the way, lovely:-)
