Big Spend, I love vouchers..

17 comments


Awoke this morning to a dreary wet day so thought" OH BOTHER!!!!!!!" or words to that effect, guess its back to housework again, then my mobile rings, it was my youngest daughter," Mom do you wanna go to Waterside??" were the magic words I heard, well obviously you all know the answer to that..
By the time we arrived the sun was shining and it was really warm, we were in seventh heaven, just the two of us, no teenagers asking if we were finished or implying that they’re starving as is their wont, lol…
So many choices and between us we had a trolley full, below are my choices today….


Could have spent longer wandering around but tea and cream scones were calling, as many of you know they are part of the enjoyment and as my daughter always says “Its the Law”lol.
All planted out now but too late to take individual pics, so will show tomorrow hopefully, all in all we both had a great day and apart from the cost of our cream treat I spent only £4. 69p and half that was on a suet treat for my friendly robins.
Dont’cha just love vouchers..

My friends gave me a£100.00 voucher when I was ??. It was great spending it at the garden centre. What else would a girl want?

What a lovely little array of plants to lift the spirits and good company and a cream tea all thrown in. Isn`t it great plant hunting again and we do seem to be getting the odd day of sunshine here and there.

And last year I won £100 In the Dundee Courier Garden Competion.

And of yes I had so much fun spending.

Hi Sue ... wonderful choices bought with your vouchers ..
and well done on planting them all !

You needed that cream scone to give you the energy ... and the robins will thank you for their treats too :o)

Its my idea of heaven, walking round my favourite garden centre knowing I can spend what I like......or it would be if I had the vouchers as well ! Hahaa!

No one asks me what I want now, they all get me vouchers. Isn't it wonderful!
You've a nice selection there Lincs. Will be looking forward to seeing them in your garden.

glad you had a good day out. nice looking plants too.

Sounds like time well spent Lincslass. Beautiful primulas there.

Lovely, Lincslass. And you are so fortunate having a daughter to keep you company on the outings!

Looks like some great plants there Lincs, and what a great way to spend a day in the company of your daughter too.. looks like a great day had by all..\0/x

Vouchers.
It's like a Willy Wonka gold voucher, isn't it? Lol.
Mine (£100) came courtesy of The West of Scotland Housing Assoc.
Double joy, as I didn't know I'd been nominated!
No teashop at local B&Q though. :-(

Ours has a cafe Mouldy......

no rain here Lincs, mild and sunny!

I love the blue primula

At the risk of sounding familiar 'didn't you do well?'

A great way to spend a miserable day, and 'scones and cream, the law?' well what better.

I'm with you all the way, garden vouchers are definitely the best idea for a prezzie, when it comes to what to get a keen gardener...I love to get them...anytime!

Yes I have the best of both worlds in my girls, the eldest shares my love of visiting the stately homes, we are both members of English Heritage and like nothing better than a day out getting lost amongst the historical places armed with our cameras and the youngest shares my passion for gardening, only lives round the corner so the plants and ideas fly backwards and forwards, my son also loves gardening and is always good for giving me the vouchers, lol...
Pam the blue one is called Zebra Blue and the other primula is Victoriana, some of them were nearly black on the edges, really pretty selection...

That was a lovely day out for you Sue. I'm pleased you bought some nice plants too :o)

21 Feb, 2014

 

Zebra Blue is just gorgeous Lincslass.

21 Feb, 2014

 

Linda we hadn't seen them before, many different shades of blue so we both bought them in the hopes that they stay true to colour in years to come....
