Hello Everyone it's marianofhickling I'm back!


Hello gardening friends and good afternoon to you all.
I have been away form grows on you for a very long time, and I am so pleased to be back.
What happened was, on the 25th of August 2016, I was rushed into hospital by ambulance from my doctors surgery, with a ruptured Appendix and I was in hospital a very long time before being allowed home.
Once home, it took me months and months to recover, in fact it has taken me so long to recover, that last weekend was my first venture into the garden and to my surprise, hardly any weeds had grown, there must have been a team of Angles taking care of the weeding for me.
So I started off small and weeded my wall pots and I planted White Arabis by the name of Little Treasure & Red Aubrieta by the name of Audrey Red, I have these plants growing as edging around the garden and they have done very well, so I hope the wall pots will do as well also.
Well it’s nice to be back among you all again, I’ve missed you all. Take care and happy gardening.
Love form

Welcome back, Marian. You seem to have had a hard time since 2016. Glad to learn you are now recovered. I'm sure the garden will help though I wouldn't advise heavy labour for some time.

Goodness, you've had a tough time. I remember a girl at school had a similar experience and she was off most of that year. At least the worst is over - take things steady and enjoy your garden. And if you ever find out why you don't have many weeds do please let us know...
