Happy New year to all my GOY friends !


I’m back !! Hello everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and kept clear of all the bugs !
I’ll be looking to see how you all are and thinking of those who have been affected by the floods .
We have been very lucky here in the N.E. of Lincolnshire ! Very mild , but wet ! Definitely not gardening weather !
Just thought I’d cheer you all up with some Summer photos…

Can’t remember if this is “Sunrise” or Sunset " ! Either way its so beautiful !

Don’t want to wish my life away, but roll on Summer !
Take care everyone ! Keep warm and if you can’t get outside….well…just get those garden books out to plan for this year !

Thank you for all your best wishes for Rick , my lovely hubby who is doing fine at the moment and staying positive and cheerful ! xxx

Happy New Year to you also, hope 2016 is a very healthy one for you and your husband.Isn't it exciting to see the bulbs pushing up?......hope the promised cold spell doesn't do too much damage.

Happy New Year and good health to you both. Enjoy your garden when you can get out there. I am busy tidying up borders and looking after Lottie so not on here much myself. Keep popping in and trying to keep an eye on friends but it is so hard at this time of year. The garden is so calling out to me but so very wet just have to keep doing a little at a time. Love the photo pleased you and Rick are having some better times. xxx

Thanks Sandra and give Russell our best wishes too !
Lets hope it is a good gardening year for us all ! Something to look forward to ! I hope your garden isn't too water logged ! New dress and new hairdo for Christmas Sandra ! It won't stay like that long once I get back in the garden ! Hahaa! xxx

Hello Chris....New me ! Hahaa! Its not often you would see me in a dress !
I hope we can both get out in the garden soon ! xxx

Thank you Linda ! Happy New Year and happy gardening ...when we can !

Hello Sue , ( Lincslass) thanks for the compliment ! You'll not see me look like this very often ! Hahaa!
How are you now ? I do hope you are over it all now !
Lets hope 2016 is going to be a healthy year for all of us !

Thanks Karen ! You look a bit different in your photo, have you lost weight ?
I can't wait for the gardening year to start and ...fingers crossed , if the car goes through its test without having to spend much money on it, Rick is getting me a little greenhouse ! It should, I hope , fit in the recess between the conservatory and next door's fence . I've missed working in the greenhouse ! xx

Thanks Kidsgran and a very healthy Happy New Year to you and yours !

Thankyou Samjp, even though the garden is smaller than we are used to, I still like to make changes !

I think we could do with a cold spell Julia and maybe the gardens will dry up a bit ! I was very late putting bulbs in last year, some as late as early December, so not many have popped up yet apart from a few in pots ! xx

Hello Barbara ( Olive Oil) I'm afraid I've neglected the garden a bit and I dug a big clump of Phlox up in the Autumn meaning to divide it and replant , but I forgot and ashamed to say its still sitting out there on the border ! But...still alive, so must do it before the frosts come ! With Rick being so poorly, nothing else seemed important ! Then when his treatment finished I had lost the motivation to get started, but being back on here now should give me the push I need ! xxx

Thanks Terra ! Nice to hear from you and I hope you are well ! xxx

Rose I have been to see the consultant today and he gave me a clean bill of health, all healed well with no nasty side-effects now, another checkup in July but all is well, thankyou for asking, still a few twinges on occasion but that will eventually ease won't it....

11 Jan, 2016


Happy New Year Marjorie ! We must really get together again soon ! I will ring you...promise !

Thanks Hywel, we had a lovely Christmas just spending it with the family !

I'm so pleased for you Sue ! What a great start to the New Year for you and your family ! Yes Sue, it will get better !
