There is only so much you can say to plants

IMG_20160628_072325

I get up and the garden is still there. Not much has happened this week and I’ve mainly gardened. It is a never ending task.

IMG_20160701_072503

During times of austerity shopping last weekend, I had to decide on the box of Tesco 45p box of cornstalks or something dearer. I don't like cheap cornflakes, but I ended up buying them after checking the ingredients and quantities. They were all the same. I got a pack to see if they tasted like cornflakes should. A moment to remember before food becomes so expensive I get thin. As it happens though they do. They are really nice cornflakes.

When I get home my first direct shipment of contact lenses has come. I used to collect them from the store, but that has now all changed.

IMG_20160630_183951

I look in my contact lens draw. Erm full.

IMG_20160630_201729

A reshuffle and I’m now ready to sell some on ebay! And yes I only have one green bottle. The blue stuff may well come in handy as weed killer!

IMG_20160701_072533

I spend another evening talking to the plants. There is only so much conversation though you can have with them until you feel you are being ignored.

IMG_20160628_072408

I have however done lots of potting, sunflower seeding, where I guess it has been so wet 95% of the seed I have put in have either rotted or been eaten. And with the six bags of soil I got from Asda I have put soil in various areas of the boarders in the hope it might help.

IMG_20160628_072352

As I say I have done a lot of potting!

IMG_20160630_225314

I go to bed, I’m still in the back room enjoying the peacefulness of it, and the wonderful plastered walls.

IMG_20160630_225206

I open a box of chocolates and

IMG_20160630_225258

eat all by one. Wow these are nice!

And with that I watch this video for the ninth time, still laughing. This is so good. There are other versions of this, but this is the best.

I wonder what Switzerland are thinking?

It Ended So Nicely

IMG_20160626_213621

I get home and the three bags of soil I requested has turned up. That's great.

IMG_20160627_075539

And so I get the seeds out and

IMG_20160626_213724

spend the evening in the garden planting seeds  in the beds, putting soil out

IMG_20160628_072408

And using every pot I have to plant more seeds. Some will surely grow this time.

IMG_20160627_000123

I settle on the sofa with some ginger nuts and a cup of tea and

IMG_20160627_221345

watch the last episode of Mom.

IMG_20160627_221455

And as things move on

IMG_20160627_221522

it ends so very very nicely.

Sometimes

IMG_20160626_124352

Its been a while since I have posted due to being busy doing things and then being tired from doing things. So I doubt I will catch up on the Blogg and I’m starting here, if I get time I’ll go backwards. So I get a long power lead and connect it to the fridge and the solar panel inverter. Did it work? No.

IMG_20160626_124447

I had a lie in until 11am and it was nice. But once up and in the garage I got the mower out and well mowed my lawn.

IMG_20160626_130450

And it so nice again. And so was the weather. I was going to have breakfast but

IMG_20160626_144628

I could see the neighbours front garden was well over grown and I had not seen them for a bit. I went round and knocked on the door. The news was sad, her husband had passed away when I was on holiday. She was happy for a chat, and I suggested I sorted her lawn out for her. It was the first time my newer battery ever went flat.

IMG_20160626_130439

While it charged I made some breakfast and enjoyed the outside world.

IMG_20160626_144444

I went back and finished the lawn and then did it a second time. Wow it is so lovely spongy. Amazing. We had a good chat together. Sometimes we all need some company.

IMG_20160626_133939

The bamboo I got yesterday and the plant pots from Home Bargains were sorted.

IMG_20160626_130919

I even planted the three plants, one of which the store holder gave to me to finish of the set they had.

IMG_20160626_213616

I spent the rest of the afternoon planting seeds.

IMG_20160626_213610

They should be nice but I need some more soil.

IMG_20160626_150553

As I wander the garden I notice that the expensive QVC lilies I got this year are truly going to be

IMG_20160626_213704

something special by the looks of it.

IMG_20160626_213741

And with that I pack away

IMG_20160626_173150

And head around my parents for some Sunday dinner.

The Saunderfoot Rock

IMG_20160625_075910

Last night I tried out the back bedroom. Erm it is wonderfully peacful in here. Wonderfully.

IMG_20160625_092119

And there is such a nice view when you open the curtains.

IMG_20160625_105300

I have a shower, put the washing machine on and put some bacon and sauage inthe oven. Only to find the bread has gone green.

IMG_20160625_105305

Luckily I have some riveta. But it really isn’t good for bacon sanwiches.

IMG_20160625_112040

Its nice being home. Its nice to be here.

IMG_20160624_215836

I look through some old photos I got from my parents yesterday.

IMG_20160624_214535

And among them was a post card that my dad sent to me when we were very very young. A time that when there was no work in Britain that he had to go and work aborad. But where was it?

IMG_20160624_214526

Poland believe it or not. How the circle of life works out.

IMG_20160625_155605

The washing machine finishes and for once I use the line outside.

IMG_20160625_133406

Mu mom is dropped off by my dad I and I take her round town. It is nice here as we wander in and out of the shops. I’m sure the highlight was me taking her to the barbers.

IMG_20160625_134649

Or maybe haveing soem late lunch with me.

IMG_20160625_134659

There is always something going on here once a month.

IMG_20160625_155601

Having visited the plant store I get a few plants and six large lucky bamboos.

IMG_20160625_161448

I also got another version of this book. It has some different things in it! A wonderful read.

IMG_20160625_161829

We enjoy a bit of time in the garden until my dad comes. Then we all enjoy some relaxing time i the garden. This is The Saundersfoot Rock.

IMG_20160625_162541

It look nice in real life.

IMG_20160625_170352

A while later the family is going shopping at Tesco’s. When we get to my brothers I peep around his closed curtains to see how his is doing. It seems to be doing well!

IMG_20160625_173701

I look around at this and that. With my brother asking you arn’t getting much. Well he is right, I got it in town earlier at my local shops.

IMG_20160625_185457

Sometime in th Aldi later I’m looking in the bins. I get some more solar lights.

IMG_20160624_215846

Sometime later I’m back at home and you know what.

IMG_20160626_165939

I havn’t played this for some time and tonight

IMG_20160626_165929

I really enjoy it.

Looks like Alan isn’t happy. Humexit – I googled it.
