Protea flowers from daughter.....


Protea flowers from daughter.....

Wish I could grow these....amazing flowers..
Recovering from op, so 6 weeks rest, should be well enough to garden in 3 months time, so loads of time to waste playing with apps......

Oh Dd...take care and hoping you feel better soon.....playing with apps or browsing seed catalogues, enjoy a quiet time for recuperation, and what stunning flowers too!

DD@beautiful flowers! It seems few of us underwent an operation last year, so let s hope this year will be happier. And yes - garden is that engine for us! Lol.

Get better soon Dotty, not much doing in the garden now.Get yourself fit and well for spring.

13 Jan, 2014

 

I hope you'll be back in good health soon DD ... spring is on the way :o) and that will help you feel better ... :o)
I didn't know these flowers could be cut and put in a vase. They look lovely ...

Hope you won't get too frustrated waiting to do things in the garden (of course you will!) but at least this is a good time of year for 'rest'. Where would we be without our OHs looking after us?! Have fun reading all those catalogues, and take it easy. :))

Get well soon Dd2....

Thanks Holly, Sheila I am not a very good patient, so pleased the weather is against me, that helps, OH is a very good cook, not so hot on the cleaning, but getting better with practice!!
Hywel I would love to preserve these flowers, they are beautiful...
Jonjoe and Gralew thank goodness for tablets/laptops so useful when you have to rest...
Kat I am hoping for a healthy 2014 for all our members..
Janey so kind of you to comment, hope all is well with you..xx
Klahanie thanks....

Dottie I wish you a good recovery. Sounds as though your OH is taking good care of you. The flowers are beautiful.

13 Jan, 2014

 

This is a good time to recuperate, Dotty ! You can sit in the warm with loads of seed catalogues planning your garden. I hope you will be feeling better soon.

Get well soon Dd, lovely flowers :-)

Beautiful flowers Angela , glad to hear you are being taken good care of make a quick recovery and get well soon x

Get Well Soon Angela - Lovely selection of flowers :) xxx
PS I've just read a comment from you about preserving these flowers! I've found that proteas last for ages - if you want to dry them, tie them together with string, and hang them upside down in the airing cupboard! They will go eventually go a brownish colour though... However, I dry lots of flowers this way!

13 Jan, 2014

 

The flowers are gorgeous.

I do hope that you will soon be well on the road to recovery.
It is a good time of year to be snug and cosy indoors.

I wish you a speedy recovery Dotty and it's nice to know that you received the proteas as they originate from my home country South Africa. The very best to you in 2014. Keep well.

Thanks Sixpence for your kind thoughts, Wildrose I am very thankful to have these three cold months to get fit....
Petal, so kind, regarding the Protea we do not have an airing cupboard?
Amy thanks, Peter is doing very well, homemade soup and Gees cheese loaf yesterday!
Simbad and Lindak thanks....
Rose have enjoyed catching up on gardening sites, and as you say looking at plant catalogues and ebay, such tempation though!! could spend a fortune...

15 Jan, 2014

 

Put those seed catalogues down now ... you know you won't be able to resist temptation! Whenever I see Proteas I think of Chelsea Flower show as there is often a fabulous display of them. Wishing you a speedy recovery ... let Peter watch all the sport he wants ... after he's done the chores of course!

15 Jan, 2014

 

Shirley how well you know me!! Peter is enjoying the tennis from Australia at the moment!
Thanks for your good wishes, just taking it easy for the time being.

15 Jan, 2014

 

Slow but steady ... take care :o)

15 Jan, 2014

 

Dd - That's such a shame not having an airing cupboard!:o((( If it was summertime I would suggest hanging them in the same fashion, but from a beam in the loft!! Not to worry though just enjoy them now as they are!

15 Jan, 2014

 

I will Petal, they are so unusual arn't they?

16 Jan, 2014

 

Please get well soon Dd....I love Protea flowers too...We use them in bouquets at our shop....:>)

20 Jan, 2014

 

Thanks Mot..getting stronger every day, it would be great if we could grow these flowers, wouldn't it?😀

21 Jan, 2014

 

Hope you're feeling a lot better Dd :))
