Hi I’am Victoria and I wrote a blog about the Harrogate spring fair on behalf of my mum.
She bought me some Arisaema tubers and they were £2.50 each. That’s expensive apparently. Is it?
I potted them up as mum instructed.

I’m not very patient but when I saw a red spike in one pot I was overjoyed. TBH I’d not looked for a while, oops!

There are roots in the other 3 put no above soil growth. [there is a proper name for this but wont admit to mum that I have forgotten it. ;o) ]

The pot was put on the pond wall and watched and watered.

This is what it looks like tonight.

The slugs and snails seem to ignore it, but not mums pansies haha. Its okay mum it had a flying lesson into the field beyond.

Just thought I’d let you see Honey and Poppy having a snuggle. Poppy is my fatty grumpy [joking Poppy] lop rabbit. Honey is big sis’s Dwarf Dutch .

Hope you like my first proper blog. Back to a critic of Macbeth for English homework :o((

Ah worked it out!.......
Well its a bit early and I hadn't had my coffee.......

I enjoyed you writing the Harrogate blog and this one, will look forward to anything else you do x

We did macbeth too many years ago to remember.......
The school took us.....all girls.... to the RSC at Stratford. Not to see the "scottish play" but Corialanus and we fell asleep, if you can find one of the open air theatres like the one in Stamford, Tolethorpe Hall, they are much more fun!

Hi Victoria, great blog and boy could I cuddle those adorable bunnies.

3 Jul, 2013


Honey is a cute gentle thing, but mine is a grumpy thing and lets you cuddle her only when she wants you too. Mum says just like me :o)

This one plant has grown well but the others haven't come above the soil. I must ask mum if they will still come out. I do hope so.

Macbeth is done now have to do Lord of the flies.

thankyou for all the encouragement
