Spoilt yet again......

30 comments


My family never find it difficult to buy a gift for me, they just head off to a garden centre and this year I have received some lovely prezzies for my birthday which was Tuesday.

Solar powered fish..


Changes colour, looks quite spooky at night and made the dogs very unsure the first night, lol..
Arthur Bell the scent is gorgeous..

Plus a tray of Gazanias, from my son, daughter-in-law and grandaughter..I spent last weekend with them and as is usual we worked in the garden, so he said I’d earned them, lol….
.Hubby has treated me to Horatio Heron, cos he likes him, lol.

New garden bench,


As you can see the old one is now used as a bench for the plants, he’s also buying me a plant theatre but unfortunately it hasn’t arrived yet….Watch this space !!!!!!

Dahlia plant support, Tripod and Bug Hotel from my youngest daughter and family…


Dahlia was chosen by my grandson, luckily he hasn’t yet learnt the different plants as its near a delphinium, lol…


The chimneypot is a gift from my nephew who has been to the reclamation yard…


Isn’t it nice when we get prezzies….

You have a lovely thoughtful family Linclass. They have been very clever in buying you exactly what will please you. I hope you enjoyed your birthday. Many happy returns.

Driad, I also wondered what a plant theatre was and Google images showed plant display stands.

Thankyou all, I had a very happy time, it started last Friday when my son Gary fetched me for the weekend, Saturday was a trip to one of the GC's and then back home to plant up the plants I'd taken with me and more that they'd treated themselves to, as you know I enjoy being in the gardens and never mind working in someone else's for a change, my son likes a BBQ and as Saturday was really hot we ended the day sitting by his pond with a drop of wine, good food and lots of laughs. Hubby joined us Sunday and we were treated to a lovely roast and trimmings all cooked once again by Gary, you could say I was in seventh heaven as I never even had to feed myself let alone anyone else all weekend, lol, so yes they have all spoilt me this again this year, I also got new clothing from my eldest girl and solar lights and earrings from my sister...

Rose you haven't trained your daughter right, you'll have to work on that one.
Waddy I'm ALWAYS a good girl, lol....
Simbad I'll let you keep the real heron but thanks for offering, lol...
Horatio is handsome and he never gets his feathers. ruffled.
Driad Alex got there first and is right, I found a lovely wrought iron one and showed hubby weeks ago, he in his wisdom messed up the order, hence the new bench which he was able to collect on the day, extra gift for me so what can one say other than thankyou, lol...

23 May, 2014

 

Steve you're a little bit out but I don't mind, lol....

23 May, 2014

 

Belated greetings for your birthday, Lincs. You got some lovely presents, especially the old chimney.

23 May, 2014

 

Happy Birthday for whenever it was :)))
And I like all your gifts ... :o)

23 May, 2014

 

Thankyou T'bear and Hywel, it was Tuesday....

Happy belated Birthday Lincs!

The garden is looking wonderful and so many pressies......!! Loving the pond area and seeing the chimney pot reminded me of ours which I picked up a few years ago and that is now hidden in the border by the fence. That will be brought out and given a more prominent spot once the fence is done!

Hope you had a great day/few days and that's me and you in the same week for birthdays. It was the grandson's yesterday as well so a busy week all round by the looks.

Love your garden :o)

Happy belated birthday Lincs, sounds like you had a good time and lots of lovely pressies.

The garden is looking really lovely, especially the pond area. Horatio is looking very much at home there along with the fish, who is looking surprisingly relaxed considering how close he is to Horatio lol.

Sorry I missed saying 'Happy Birthday' on the day Sue ... didn't you do well presents? Lucky lady :o)

24 May, 2014

 

Belated Happy Birthday from me too. Will you hire out your generous family to some of us with few relatives when its our birthdays? Your fish is great - is it going by the pond?

24 May, 2014

 

Thanks Ob, good job we had our bbq's last week, its flipping cold out there now, lol....
Hi Sam, thankyou, they do look amusing standing there together don't they, have to think of a name for fishy..

25 May, 2014

 

Thankyou Shirley and Stera, they did me proud didn't they...

25 May, 2014
