Saturday.

Good Evening, as Stuart is watching the footy I thought I would share a couple of pictures I took last night in the evening sunshine round the front of the house.  Do you remember back in January I bought two round containers reduced to £1 each well this is how they have turned out. I am so pleased they are both in full flower with these lovely Violas. I really only bought them for the empty container but thought I would leave them in a sheltered spot to see if they would flower again. I think I got my moneys worth as they are selling them just now for £9-99 each and they are not so nice as mine.  Been busy today we or should I say Stuart cleaned out the shed and made so much room we has enough space to sit and have a coffee (Been watching too much of Monty's gardening program on a Friday). We then loaded up the back of the car and made a trip down to the Recycling Centre or the Dump in old money, so job well done old lawn mower and strimmer away and a few other odds and ends that had accumulated over the last months. We just have a small garden and don't have room for any rubbish but always found it hard to remember when the Recycling Centre was open. I had a thought and put the opening times on the computer so any time I need to know its there, great. Well am feeling a bit peckish so will go and do some cooking have a good evening. Love

Sara made this graphic for me.

The pots look lovely and yes you certainly got your moneys worth.  We still call it the dump or the tip and always will lol!  I have been lazy today.  First warm day we have had so I have spent a couple of hours sitting in the sun, got a bit of a tan already.  Great you have made all that space.

Hi Joan,  I remember you buying those pots and I thought then what a great bargain.  At our garden centre they sell them filled with flowers for £12.99!  Your viola`s are really nice and the pots are just right for them.  Jim`s watching the football too so I`ll be on the PC for most of the evening undisturbed...lol! :o)

Those pansies were a real bargain, can remember the day you bought them, couldn't believe how cheap they were. They are so pretty.

Such pretty flowers!  My sisters (ages 5 and 7) and I were out the other day planting a small flowerbed out front of your house.  But our plants haven't had a chance to grow like yours have!
