leisurely day


Started the morning with a long motorcycle ride on a charity “poker run” didn’t draw a winning hand though. On our trip back home Hubby pulled off onto a side road to wait for me to catch up (got caught in traffic) I pulled onto the same side road and turned into the nursery that was right there :) Told him if I bought anything it was his fault! LOL

Well I just couldn’t pass it up now could I!?

What did I find when I got inside?….“ALL PLANTS 50% OFF

So what did I buy??

Upon further investigation (no tag in the pot) I believe this to be a Huernia

And a Heuchera ‘Caramel’

I think I was very well behaved with that kind of a sale.

Happy gardening

Hi Kris,
I love the sound af a 50% off sale, and the motorbike ride sounds fun as well. I know its not gardening but you've just got to fill me in about your bikes, Please !!!
Perhaps a private message might stop us getting in trouble HeHe

I like the plants bargain, also like bikes as well so put the plants on the bike and photograph them both, problem

so what panniers do you have on what bike?
ian it is important to know which bikes gardeners have for us other bikers. so i am sure we could squeeze answers in.
currently i have a honda 250 with small top box. ok for 2 x 6 celled plant trays pansy etc.
hubbys honda 500 has a bigger box and panniers. can get a 2 litre pot with similar height top growth.
when we had the harley road king [sob no longer] we used to get loads in.
have been known to ride pillion with a clematis and honesuckel in my lap.
plastic bags over the top foliage to prevent wind damage.
that was a strange sight.
the only ones i'd struggle on would be the matchless G9 and the ariel huntmaster. but they tend to be special days and then we have the excuse for going back in the car. :o)

Watch it Seaburngirl, Keep talking like that and I'm likely to throw my dummy out again, Photo's photo's and more photo's are needed to stop any missile throwing LOL

My kawazaki 650b is just a distant dream now, I've had several Hondas from a 250 superdream upto a 750 (with a sidecar) so I would have got loads of seeds in that LOL

The Matchless and the Ariel are in a different league though,
severely jealous now.
