HELLO THERE...SO PLEASED TO BE BACK ON G.O.Y.

11 comments


It has been very hectic since December, but now things have settled down, I can get back on to my favourite gardening site again, I managed to dip in every now and again, so although I did not leave any comments, I was there!!
Like many of you I gave my OH a gardening book for Christmas…….yes!! you guessed Alan Ts, he has only just put it down!! but it has inspired him to make many changes in the garden, so exciting times ahead…..again.
I do hope we can look forward to a better gardening year, weather wise, and put 2012 well and truly behind us, we had so much wet weather in the South, I am sure we will lose many plants, so it will be out with the old etc
So it is hello to all my old buddies, and perhaps hello to some new ones also.
Leave you with one of my favourite photos, this was taken a couple of years ago.


Narcissus poeticus was one of the first daffodils to be cultivated and is frequently identified as the narcissus of ancient times, not always easy to grow……..or that could just be me!!

Welcome back. You'll have plenty to catch up with and I'm sure I won't be the only one looking forward to seeing what your OH is inspired to do. Happy New Year :)

Nice to see you back Dd, its the trees and shrubs I worry about they went from months of drought to months of wet and high water table that has nowhere to go

Hi DD. Happy New Year. Like you, I have only been dipping in and out of GoY. There didnt seem much to put on there, but I shall be back soon too. Beautiful narcissus photo, I think we used to call it Pheasant Eye. Look forward to seeing your garden again soon.

What a very pretty narcissus and it is nice to see your name again.
A very happy year ahead and I hope that all your plans for the garden take off under blue skies and fluffy white clouds!

Happy New Year Dotty to you both, I have no doubt some thing will change in your garden and will be watching eagerly.
I was given Mr T`s book and am really enjoying it but I cannot picture Alan being there, I guess we spent so long enjoying Barleywood, it still seems to me as though that is where I`d expect to find him, a bit like picturing G Hamilton sitting in his little hut , lol....

Lincs I have only just been allowed to pick up the book, so I cannot comment on your thoughts as yet.......
Thanks Wildrose, I am hoping for some blue sky, we did have some this morning, but it was very brief, and we were soon back to the grey skies......
Cinders it is good to see you again, Pheasant eye is right, not sure why? it grew well the first year, then nothing the next!!
Annella thanks, fingers crossed for a better summer at least.
Pam I agree, have never known the garden to be so saturated for so long a period....
Scottish we went to the GCs today, garden tokens to be spent, managed to get a few hardy evergreens, we have some large shrubs that need removing, also an old arch to be replaced, not going to be easy, still we love a challange!!

Like you I've been dipping into GoY briefly but not finding time to stay and comment until now. Seem to have started a cold today so I am already sitting cosied up in jimjams, Lemsip on the side, and doing some catching up! I must admit I have been surprised to see so many shrubs etc with new growth on already in spite of the constant rain so I am optimistic. I will look forward to seeing your changes :)
