Changing times


My friend is getting married in May, so good excuse to buy a new outfit, yum yum, NO I decided to dig something out of the wardrobe, and spend the money on MORE plants, so it was back to the nursery!! Never have I passed up the opportunity to buy a dress, I think my partner is right I am obsessed, he also thinks 20 bags of horse poo is a little toooooo much. Oh I shall get more pleasure from the plants. lol.

Oh how I know what you mean Patricia! I see soooooo many plants on here that I would like to buy!! I tell my other half that I won't go on holiday, as would rather spend the money in my garden which I can appreciate all year, if that makes me sound as bad, then know you are in good company lol!!!

I persuaded my daughters to buy me 24 bags of Black Gold (ok, it was well rotted horse poo) for my birthday last year and I'm down to the last few bags. So Patricia, I guess were all as bad as each other on GOY.
But be honest now, it wouldn't just be a dress would it..... shoes.... handbag..... hat..... underwear...... haircut..... manicure ! There - now you can buy even more plants !!!!!! :-))

I have heard of black gold, but I fear my purse will not run to that, I have just spent all day in my little garden, looking a wreck, hot, dirty, and tired, but I love it!!! where did that smart girl go to, how times do change, I used to love windows shopping for next season, HA HA. now it the sales, so I can save money and buy more plants I have no where to put. I think I am getting a bit obsessed, also spent half an hour digging the daisies out of my lawns. NOW I have to take the dogs out, more mess, and water the garden, more mess. Oh well at least I will sleep tonight. Dreaming about what I shall do in the garden tomorrow. LOL happy gardening, all and thanks everyone for all your help on my probs.
