Thank you Kate I have others mixed between my Peonies Roses at the back. My daughter has bagged them for next year lol that's kids for you.

24 May, 2019

 

Bet they look nice amongst the peonies and roses! Pretty combination.
Ps. That’s what Mums are for ;))

I like that mirror on the fence :)

The Peonys and roses are in bud at present thank you Kate.

Thank you Hywel I bought it a few years back from B&M which is like a cheap super store here.

25 May, 2019

 

I've seen one of those B&M shops in Carmarthen ...

25 May, 2019

 

You ll have to take a visit Hywel it is seasonal shop for garden stuff up here they do 2 Isles they also sell garden furniture too and all sorts plants too here I got my fairy's from there too a few years back. Just bought a maidens blush Tradescantia fluminensis plant from there with another garden mirror as one of my mirrors has rotted.

When I go to Carmarthen I'll look if I can, but it's difficult to get a wheelchair in the shop - it's on a steep slope and the entrance is awkward. Maybe I could leave B somewhere and go myself.

That is a shame Hywel as I am sure Beryl would love to look around it too. Looking at that entrance there it looks as they have a flat surface entrance on the second door way up.

There is aB&M in Cardigan 48 min drive 26.3 mile away with a garden centre with a car park like we have here it should have disabled parking there too also another in Swansea with car parking if you ever go near any of these areas.

Thanks for the information. Yes I know about the doorway, it is more awkward than it looks on the photo. I had difficulty getting the wheelchair in there last time we went. The hill is also steeper than it looks on a photo.

There's a B&M in Trostre, an 'out of town' shopping centre near Llanelli. That's on the flat with good parking but inside the shop is rather cramped and and narrow isles, and difficult to manouvre a wheelchair.

Cardigan we never go, it's too far from here , about 50 miles and there's no direct rout. The roads are dreadful too, very windy and narrow with big lorries hurtling along them, very dangerous
Swansea - big and dreary with lots of traffic and hopeless parking facilities - a horrible place. They also keep changing the road layouts and last time I went there I got lost lol. Beryl was waiting 20 mins for me to pick her up because I couldn't find the way to where she was, (it was before she had to use the chair) they had altered all the roads :D

Yes photos are deceiving I did wonder if the entrance was also deceiving on the photo. Shame about Trostre one having narrow isles also Cardigan being to far and no direct route I don't think I would chance driving with lorries coming fast on narrow roads.

Yes I recall you getting lost in Swansea and Beryl having to wait a long time for you its the same here Hywel they have altered the city that much I would nt know my way round in fear of getting fined going into a wrong spot.

What with fines every where you go or park here now then recently they say we will be charged congestion tax on every road leading into the city then having 5G put it which is killing the wild life and trees are being chopped down for it and will causes cancers also LED street lightening which the blue light it emmits is dangerous to our health especially the eyes I feel I no longer want to I've here any more.

Just to warn you as they are starting to roll it out in Wales in Cardiff soon even Brussels has refused to have it in their country in fear for the health of their people which you can check in the news.

Thank you … I've only got an old ipad my brother gave me, just in case of an emergency if the car breaks down etc. I use it occasionally when I go shopping on my own, to see if Beryl is all right until I get back.

29 May, 2019

 

Keep your ipad a distance from your body if your on it for a long time even Steve Jobs would nt allow his kids near one when he was alive neither will Bil Gates go near one.
5G goes through the lamp posts Hywel so every one will be affected it was used as a military weapon ( microve) which if your close to the towers can fry your insides .
Yes I remember you saying you use it to keep an eye on Beryl 😊 xxx

29 May, 2019

 

I use it very rarely , Last time was a few months ago when I went to the dentist 8 miles away and I phoned B to see if she was all right. I have no intention of keeping it switched on all the time like most people. I don't like the thought of 5g going through the lamp posts though. it doesn't sound healthy to me.

29 May, 2019

 

My son told me radiation from the ipads should affect the elderly but I would nt take the chance as its proven like these iPhones if held near genitals they can sterilise you I fear the future of the kids today knowing this.

Neither do I Hywel there is a lamppost out side my house and this is what the man in the link above is trying to fight to stop it in his town in Gateshead.

You should put a phone by your ear not your genitals lol
... but I know what you mean :)
Maybe one day they'll ban this g5 but it will be too late then.

30 May, 2019

 

Lol Hywel any mobile phone I would nt put to my ear either especially if being used for long periods of time the experts advise and if used like this over 10 will cause brain tumours I use my loud speaker and lay it on the arm of my chair or hold it away from me if I am out.

I doubt it Hywel yesterday I heard them talking about 11G. I know the closer they are it then starts taking oxygen out of the air depriving us of oxygen.

Whatever next ! :O

I dread what they will come up with next Hywel Councils have an obligation to the public under health and safety and people can and should demand the councils research the safety of it as stated in the link above.

31 May, 2019

 

I agree. I don't think Carmarthenshire council would take any notice though. They are hopeless. It took them nearly two years to fix a paving curb where Beryl nearly fell out of her wheelchair, and that was only after my MP had been on to them about it.

2 Jun, 2019

 

Yes I recall you saying about having to go to an mp about Beryl.
It's the same here Hywel the councils are no longer have in interest of the people nor for the people who pay their wages we are in a dictatorship they are for the state and big business just like the police are and most of our mps and Judicinal system.

2 Jun, 2019

 

You are right, I don't feel we are treated as human beings these days.

2 Jun, 2019

 

Defiently Hywel the money is all going to the multy rich to control us as government has said we in the west are not as easy to control like the third world countries.
I ve recently discovered we have been deceived by all including Farage who wants to get rid of the nhs and join us to an eu army as well .
I was told by a local police man about a month ago to follow Ian Crane on you tube who worked in the oil industry discovering what's what he is telling most closer to the real truth the police man told me. I shall pm you his recent discovery link.

3 Jun, 2019

 

Thanks for the link. I never believe what anyone says.

3 Jun, 2019

 

Lol can't say I blame you Hywel 😊

Hi Thrupennybit ..... I haven't read all the correspondence relating to this photo, so it may have already been mentioned. "I would say this is much bigger than giant ! It's definitely at least 3XL. Love to know what you've been feeding it." 😊

7 Jun, 2019

 

That's it Alanb I don't feed any plants in the ground only my pots when I remember lol this allium is in the ground.
