Orchids and the rest

    Good Evening, thought I had better put an entry in tonight as I have not spoken to you since Wednesday. Have been a bit down for some reason or another don't know just why but a bit cheerier today.   We were up at our favourite garden centre this morning and I have bought an Orchid plant, it is not the one above this one is one I have not seen before. I got a great bargain today as it was reduced.  I have been going to buy one for ages but as you know they are quite expencive and I was not sure if our house was warm enough for one as they do not like sunlight that meant it would have to be the living room which faces north, and was very cold and draughty at the window. Now with the double glazing and the walls insulated the house is so much warmer I thought I would give it a try. If anyone has any tips for growing a successful Orchid I would be glad to hear about it.     

           No 'Casualty' worst luck really enjoy that and Holby on Tuesday  but the footy has taken over again so will just have to lump it tonight again.  Will find another drawer or cupboard to tidy out that's on good thing all will be done by the time this ......World cup is finished. Am going to load up some pictures i have taken over this last week so with that I will say Goodnight and God Bless, or as the Great  Dave Allen would say  'May your God be with you'.   Love



Sara made this for me.

Hi Joan,  I`m a football `widow` too, I hear the odd grunt or cheer from downstairs but apart from that I`m on my own...sigh!  I`m glad you`re feeling more cheerful today, I usually find the sunny weather cheers me up no end.  I`ve been merrily collecting petunia seeds the last few days I just hope I`m doing it right!  Lovely photos, you have some really pretty flowers.  I`ve no idea what do do with an orchid, they are very beautiful and exotic but I`m sure they wouldn`t last long in my house because we get sun in every room, especially the front room in the afternoon.  Good luck with it though. :o)

Loved the Pictures....I absolutely love Foxgloves, mine were bought in pots, and a very poor show this year.
Fortunately Allan does not follow F*****ll, so we went to visit my Mum in the Nursing home tonight.

Share your passion for foxgloves. I got down this week and know the cause - the high winds. I hate windy days. It's been lovely here today though, very warm and quite sunny. Take care of yourself and that lovely orchid.
Love Sylvia xx

I love foxgloves, yours are so beautiful. I'm glad the high winds didn't flatten them completely. Good luck with the orchid, I've never had one so can't offer any advice! Have a lovely weekend. Jeannette xx

Hi Joan. Sorry to hear you have been a bit down.I think we all feel like that from time to time.I know I do. The new orchid must have cheered you up, I would love to grow one, but not lucky with plants, but we have lovely foxgloves but nowhere near as tall as yours.Also, your garden is beautiful. Take care, have a relaxing Sunday, where does the time go? its nearly July.
