more clouds and more plants


i know there all the same but i think its great how a few minutes between each shot is totally diffrent

and this is the view from my front window with a beautiful rainbow

while im here i might as well introduce you all to vicky, she looks a million times better than this pic all moist and warm in the bathroom and growing new shoots.

since my last visit, iv been back to b n q ha ha rescuing more plants what did i get this time …….wait till i remember………a climbing rose, perpetually young, a really dodgy looking acer which i just love the colous at this time of year, a fuchia plant, alice hoffman, wee vicky the venus fly trap, a huge "mum"ball for a pound, bargain! only if it comes back, and a pot of agapanthus that was ready to explode out the pot, put it straight into the ground, i couldnt divide it it was too tight,and i sowed two packets of sweet peas, im kinda doin a monty experiment lol im gonna sew more later on, you can never have enough sweet peas i think.
was reading another ladies blog who done flower pressing, defo a new hobby for me gonna try it out and see if i can make my mum a christmas card, think it would be nice x

Thats funny Andrea as I was doing the same this afternoon, contemplating the clouds and watching how quickly they change and how some are quicker then others and over take them. I always find sky watching quite calming.

Those skies are lovely.

Looking at the sky teaches you to identify colours and better appreciate paintings.
Look up and count 9 colours.
Then look away.
Look back and count 9 more.

Lovely skies Andrea - I too enjoy sitting watching the clouds go by :)
You got some nice bargains there - good luck with your seeds.
I'm sure I read on here somewhere that Agapanthus flower better when they are 'pot bound'. I grew mine in a pot for the first time this year - they didn't flower but I remain hopefull :))
