Been lovely weather here last few days, took a few pics of things blooming in the garden etc. Not been on so much recently as my poor daughter got bad news on Monday night. Her boyfriend of 4 years finished wiht her. SHe has been staying with me for a couple of days as she is in pieces. Sleeping at the moment so I thought I;d take the time to put some pics on for you to see. Life sucks eh?
SO apologies for not commenting on things..jst not on here as much xxxx

25 May, 2012

 

So sorry to hear your daughters news pixi. Hope she will soon pick herself up again. Your garden is looking fine, everything is happening so fast now isnt it.

Sorry to hear about your daughter,some men really are swines at times aren`t they,my friends fella dumped her on valentines day after sending her a bouquet of flowers and taking her to dinner, dumped her after the dessert needless to say she was also in bits.....garden looks good though, and I like the painted tootsies!!

sorry to hear that Pixi, my Holly is going through a bad one at the moment... but the garden there is lovely..

25 May, 2012

 

sorry to hear about holly too surreylad, all the best for her as well, hope things work out.

25 May, 2012

 

It's good that she's getting back to work, Pix...it'll help her to get back to normal. xx

And sorry about Holly too, SL...x

Strange to say, my daughter and the father of my grandson have also parted last week...fortunely, we both look apon that as a good thing...

Anyway...Moonlight on the sea...has that got anything to do with 'shrimping' -no wait!! On second thoughts...too much information!!

25 May, 2012

 

Your garden is looking great, Pixi. I especially like the pond and those nails!
Sorry your daughter is having a bad time. It's never easy, s it?

25 May, 2012

 

Great photos Pixi, its just great to see the gardens coming alive, everythings moving fast with all this sunshine. Hope your daughter eventually gets some sunshine back into her life.

25 May, 2012

 

Were you trying a cheap version of a fishy pedicure Pixi ?

25 May, 2012

25 May, 2012

25 May, 2012

Lovely pics Pixi, gardens looking great.
Good to see you got to relax in the sunshine & I promise not to tell the boys that if you zoom in you can see in the mirror exactly what is making Clay blush, Lol.

Sorry to hear Sarah's news Pixi.....she won't know if she's coming or going. 4 years is a long time. Lucky she has you there for support.
Garden looking great - plenty of blue flowers and not forgetting to mention the paeony - my favourite flower :)
Did that fern manage to get going? I put the remainder in a pot and it seems to be stuck at doing nothing.

25 May, 2012

 

lol Willi..me in my pink hat lol!
Thanks Angie :) No sign of the fern at all! I have a bambbo stick beside it..jsut so as i know where it is..maybe it will come. brunnera is coming along slowly..the sunshine is helping everything tho..so hot eh?

Always remember - love something that will never hurt you.
Our music teacher taught us a song by Shakespeare - I think it had happened to her.
'Sigh no more ladies, ladies sigh no more -
Men were deceivers ever, men were deceivers ever -
One foot on sea, and one on shore,
To one thing constant never, to one thing constant never
But sigh not so,
And let them go -
And be you blithe and bonny -
Be you blithe and bonny -
Converting all your songs of woe -
Converting all your songs of woe -
To hey Nonny Nonny, hey Nonny Nonny, hey Nonny Nonny.

Been on holiday Pixi sorry to hear about your daughters split, breaks your heart doesn't it my Lisa has had her heart broke a few times she is now 30 and has been going out with my sons best friend for a year.....fingers crossed this time. Take care and hugs for your little girlx

26 May, 2012

 

Think I heard that at school too Diane :)
Yes K! lol
THanks Nana..Sarah is 31 this is the 4th time she has had this happen to her and she now thinks its all her fault, which of course it isnt. Just the way it is. Hope your daughters relationship lasts :)))

26 May, 2012

 

The ferns must sulk when disturbed Pixi...I started giving it lots of water a few days ago - scratched just beneath the surface today and there are signs of the fronds. So hopefully yours won't be far away :)

26 May, 2012

 

ha well..i was pottering about down at that part of the garden and there they were..about half a dozen of them! :)))))) things are jsut appearing up quickly now.
Been to Falkland palace with Sarah today but it wasnt the right time to go really..not too many flowers out jsut now! But it was a lovely day and it took her out of herself for a while..shes doing not so badly..hurt is turning to anger i think..poor lass. :)

26 May, 2012

 

Glad its showed it's face now Pixi :)
Was nice for you to get her out and about for the day - she would have appreciated that. Hurt to anger - that sounds about right. Doesn't matter what you say though does it - we've all been there and done that, it's just hard when its your child going through it.

26 May, 2012

 

Yeah was so pleased! :)
Well its not the kind of thing Sarah likes to do but she seemed to enjoy just walking about in the sun..and trees are always good for you somehow I think. Just put a blog on. No it doesnt matter..been there many times ..got the tshirt etc :)

26 May, 2012

 

Maybe everyone has different places that help them, for me it's the waves breaking on an isolated beach (favourite beach is on the isle of Harris)

26 May, 2012

 

Oh that too!!!!!! Just nature in all its forms eh? :)

26 May, 2012

 

We used to do a craft-fair at Falkland...the oriental poppies are spectacular when they come out... :)

27 May, 2012

 

Looking good Pix...are those feet new lol, not seen them before....

27 May, 2012

 

I was at the craft fair there about 14 yrs ago lol...wow didnt realise it had been that long! I dont rememebr the poppies but i do rmrmeber the Delphiniums! A whole row of blue..spectacular!
Lol Sue yeah..did you see the Irises? they are coming along niocely:)

27 May, 2012

27 May, 2012

 

Sppoky! ;)

27 May, 2012

 

Oh yes...I just noticed them Pix...great, not flowered for you yet...!! They look good there...

27 May, 2012

 

well we jsut got sun this week..everything is coming along now thanks goodness. They are strong plants! :)

27 May, 2012

 

I can see they've taken well...I was showing OH the new leaves on your Pond Lily, like a burgundy colour, very nice...we put ours in at last at the weekend...I took a pic of the Label...it's white with a lemon centre, should be pretty when it flowers...

28 May, 2012

 

:) Thats great SUe..they should do well.
I'm amazed at how many leaves and flowers this one produces..the other one only ever gives one flower but I sank the pot down to the bottom now so maybe thats what it neede..wait till you see there wont be room for them all and the poor wee fishies will have to live in darkness lol

28 May, 2012

 

WoW Pixi hasn't your garden filled out, it looks Lovely, The Salix looks great there..

28 May, 2012

 

Hi YD! thanks :))

28 May, 2012

 

Hi Pixi X

28 May, 2012

 

Hope you all feel a bit better now xx

28 May, 2012

 

We put ours down on the bottom, I think that's where they prefer to be...don't know whether it will flower this year though....

29 May, 2012

 

Im so pleased it flowered..i love it :)))))

29 May, 2012

 

I did think afterwards - tell your daughter to buy herself a small motorbike. You can always tell when a woman is riding, they have shorter arms !

It will bring her lots of new friends, and lots of laughs.

29 May, 2012

 

omg she would never have a motorbike she hates them lol :) and btw her arms are extremely long! Nice thought tho Diane :)

29 May, 2012

 

LOL Pix, where's my smiley when I need him....

30 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

 

Love your garden Pixi, nice toes too!!!

30 May, 2012
