Good Evening, Just a wee entry tonight just wanted to let you see two of my containers out the back. I was rather pleased with them after the shock of what came up.  We chose the Hyacinths and the Tulips very carefully last September all colour co-ordinated but somehow the got mixed up.  I had written on the bags what was in them and the varieties but somehow we got them the wrong way round. The cream Hyacinths were supposed to be in with the red tulips and the pink in with the lemon but you can see the results. They have turned out not too bad but I thought there would be a clash of colour but nature is great you don't really have to worry.  The pictures of Ellen and the other big kid were taken on Friday on our way back from picking Ellen up she asked if we could go to the park for a while but it turned cold after about 15 minutes so we just came home but she enjoyed the short time she had.  Had a fairly quiet weekend coffee as usual at our local Garden Centre sitting in the sun on Saturday afternoon and Stuart got burned believe it or not then yesterday did some planting of Hydrangeas cuttings I took last August and Foxgloves that I grew from seed and have over wintered in my wee greenhouse. Hope you have all had a good Bank Holiday speak to you again soon. Love

I love foxgloves, can we see pics when they're grown please?! Had to laugh at Stuart in the park, men are big kids aren't they?!! I've always been amazed that you can plant any coloured flowers together and they don't clash, if we wore clothes with those same colours we'd look awful, nature is wonderful! Jeannette xx

Sometimes getting things wrong results in a better display, I know I have done it in the past.  Nothing ever seems to clash in nature.  Lol at Grandad having a high old time in his second childhood!
