You are so lucky TT, they are beautiful, mmm...I could smell them from here... :-)

10 Jun, 2009

 

Hi Doon ~

Sorry you didn't get my message.
I've sent the message again. It should be in your GoY inbox....

Now, Poetgardener, these freesias are definitely REAL. Lol.
I'm going to put them in fresh water today with more of the special powder which keeps the flowers fresh for longer ...

Hi Panther ~ You're smelling these in Fiji ? That's amazing. :o)
Yes, I'm lucky to receive such beautiful flowers...

10 Jun, 2009

 

I love fresias. I hope they brought you some comfort TT.

10 Jun, 2009

 

Yes, Hywel. The flowers are still doing really well..
I've just put them in fresh water.
I'm no expert at flower arranging, but the flowers are so pretty, they arrange themselves to look beautiful...:o)

10 Jun, 2009

 

It must be my eyes, on the thumbnail, I thought I could see a little fairy face top left ! Need new glasses...

10 Jun, 2009

 

Funny you should say that ~
each time I look at the thumbnail I see a fairy face top left...
Thought it was because I was tired. Lol.
Maybe the fairy is casting magic spells to make my dog better :o)

10 Jun, 2009

 

I spoke with a florist friend of mine a while back about keeping fresh flowers going for a while, and he said that you should put a little sugar in the water if you run out of the white powder. And others swear by an aspirin in the water. And yes, keep changing the water. And snip the bottoms when they get soggy. They should stay nice a good long time.
Give conker a scratch behind the ear from Odie & Popie! (and me!)
Hang in there...I'm sure the fairy's are watching over you!

10 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks for the flower care advice...
It's years since I had cut flowers in the house, so useful to learn how I can keep the freesias looking fresh as long as possible. x

Conker says thanks for the scratch from Odie and Popie.
No bad side effects from the medication so far...
The fairies are doing a good job... :o)

10 Jun, 2009

 

ThanksTT, I guess i did not know to check my Inbox, now i know. I am sure Conker will respond to the awesome love that is going his way You know so well what a wonderful sense these animals have. We will send all our warmest love to Conker & hope 4 his recovery. Just love him to bits, he will feel all that love to make him better again. Sad to hear.

10 Jun, 2009

 

Hi Doon ~
I'm glad you found my message.
I've told Conker all the love and good wishes you've sent.
He's certainly getting lots of affection and attention here.
Thanks. :o)

10 Jun, 2009

 

glad the vet thing is going well. i have also used lemonade in vases too.
i saw a fairy face too. lovely thought sending you flowers. they are really pretty.

10 Jun, 2009

 

Hi Seaburngirl ~
Yes, thanks, Conker has improved this week...
The fairy face in the smaller photo is very obvious isn't it....
Thanks for the lemonade tip...:o)

11 Jun, 2009

 

This is lovely. The climbers I have on my arches consists of Akebia Quinata, which is almost evergreen and vigorous, clematis Cirrhosa Freckles which is evergreen and vigorous. It has totally covered a long trellis from top to bottom about 6 feet high. Jasminum Polyanthum tender evergreen and Solanum Crispum Glasnevin. I have not got the last two, but you could maybe look them up in Google.

11 Jun, 2009

 

Michaella ~ Thanks. :o)

11 Jun, 2009

 

Beautiful flowers! I keep wondering how you and Conker are doing, glad to hear there has been some improvement.

11 Jun, 2009

 

Hi Gillian ~
These flowers are lovely, aren't they !
Yes, thanks. Conker is doing well on this week's medication. :o)
I've put some updates about Conker on my current blog, and I'll have more news next week after Conker's blood tests.
I hope all is going well for you with your plans....

11 Jun, 2009

 

Thank you so much for the photo TT. what a surprise it was for us to see the freesias. They are our favourite too. Guernsey flowers always do a wonderful job. Highly recommend them.
What lovely comments too.
So glad they cheered you a little. We are glad to hear Conker's chemo went well and he is feeling a little better, we have been thinking of him while we were away.
Love Bob and Sylvia. xx

14 Jun, 2009

 

Thanks, Bob and Sylvia ~
I thought you would like to see your lovely flowers...
Conker is doing well so far..
He will take higher dose of chemo tablets this coming week, so fingers crossed.
love, TT, Conker, Truffle and Crocus. xxx

Lovely freesias....i didnt click mine this season...btw do you remove them during winters or just leave them in the garden..

27 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks, Arsh.
Doctor Bob who kindly sent me the freesias, would be the best person to answer any of your questions on those...

27 Jul, 2009

 

Like all bulbs, corms, tubers they have a dormant period. I'm afraid I can't comment in your part of the world.

29 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks for answering as best you can, Bob. x
