I wonder if your nearest and dearest went for gardening presents for you this year? Mine certainly did! Mind you, I did ask for a book on Salvias…
Which I got! Along with a book written jointly by Beth Chatto and Christopher Lloyd – who could ask for more expertise than that? I’m looking forward to learning from them.
What do you think this is? It rocks when you sit on it… I’m meant to sit on it to weed (I think).
I am so used to kneeling down to do this job, that I suspect it will prove difficult. It might turn out to be the best thing since sliced bread, though! Watch this space….
This beautiful calendar will be a pleasure all 2008. It came with a CD-ROM which has put a calendar on my laptop. (No pictures, though).
Another present which won’t last quite so long, but just as welcome! The hyacinths are going to be blue. I love the scent.
The last present was from me to me. There are (I think) four or possibly five Amaryllis bulbs in the basket called ‘Christmas Carol’. There are leaves coming up but so far no fat flower buds. I live in hope.
My other presents weren’t gardening items. I do have some other interests, but the family knows that my garden is the most important. What did yours get for you?
