Isn't it a bit late to be planting crocus?

;0)

Isn't it brilliant when a much waited for order arrives. What did you get? (I shall hang my head in shame if the answer is crocus).

Lavender Hidcote - none of the local nurseries grew it this year for some reason.
Nicotiana, Bishops Weed, a couple of Acers and what I hope will be a star in years to come an Exochorda.
Will plant tomorrow treating the deck and garden furniture at the mo. - a job I hate so shall enjoy tomorrow.
Did find time to get the crocus corms in though !!

Lovely selection Sandra, the bride is one of my faves that I don't have here, yet. My Myrtle was more important to me.

Are you growing the Bishops weed for the seed?

We are happy bunnies too. We had to go to Limoges this morning and as a treat we went into Jardiland (garden centre, rather a lovely one at Limoges), really to get some strimmer string for the brushcutter, and we found lots of 'leaky' hose at a very reasonable price. Bought 50 metres and I have just popped back from the potagers where himself has laid it out and it is in full operation around the tommies and the peas. It makes our life much easier and hopefully will make the tommies less prone to the blight. I can dispose of many litre empty bottles now; my job is to cut the bottoms off and then we use the upended bottle as a watering mechanism.

Also had a very pleasant lunch which is always a plus before doing the shopping.

Excellent ! Well remember the intense labour required just in watering when we had a large fruit and veg. area.
The Bishops Weed simply because I have always loved Cow Parsley but far too invasive. Just love the effect in a mixed border and looks lovely in a vase with my old fashioned roses.

P.S
Will also be traumatised as the present Hidcote beside the shed is a monster so has to be dug out for a smaller specimen. How I wish you could cut them right back.

I've never been very good with any lavender but my neighbour in the UK had brilliant displays; she says with just a light trim.

Can you take cuttings, that's a new skill I'm trying to learn. Some people seem to be able to nick a bit of whatever and it flourishes.

Yes, take cuttings from a host of stuff and collect seed but only from things I know will "do the biz " quickly ! Far too impatient to wait for lavender to mature I'm afraid. They are all replaced once outgrown their allowed space - I'm a hard woman !

enjoy your planting tomorrow.

I have a French lesson in the morning followed by my very first facial since I left the UK. I might look halfway human in a few weeks time :0)

a happy bunnt

I tell you, I had a French pedicure within 2 months of arriving, and, it is not the same!!!! She said quivering at the sharp knife (not a chopper).

I've been waiting until I have found someone I can comunicate with. Think I've done that now. Pedicure and manicure last week superb. OH reported his massage was excellent, I can't wait wait for tomorrow afternoon :o)

I just appreciate a few creature comforts !!!

one glowing bunny

Haha thanks Sandra, glowing and feeling 10 foot tall. She was very complimentary about the good condition of my skin, I did inherit good skin from my father, along with the large bones..... and small stature from my Mum.

I had almost 2 hours of luxury which included a head massage. I think I was given extra time because OH was booked in for a massage but because of the blood clot problem behind his eye she deferred his next massage to next week.

Oh dear, back again next week and I will have an eyebrow reshape. Sheer luxury :0)

Glad it went well. A bit of pampering is no luxury at my age, it's a damn necessity !

Glowing bunnies indeed

I have a manicure and pedicure booked for this next week too. Isn't it wonderful how a bit of pampering can make us feel wonderful? I used to think that it was only "ladies who lunched" who indulged in professional manicures and pedicures, until I was treated to both as a gift. I discovered what I'd been missing and indulge fairly regularly now. A facial is absolute bliss too - I have yet to try a massage but it's on the cards.
