Street Party at Teds Corner


By teds


Hi Everyone, yes its me Teds!
Sorry I haven’t been around of late but I just didn’t seem to find the time to log on – and now there is so much to catch up with I just don’t know where to start!

All your gardens are looking great and the trips out have been so interesting. It is going to take me a long time to read all the blogs and look at the photos. Paul and I have been decorating for my 90 year old dad in his house in Essex. Then when we got back, we tidied up the front porch as the rose and clematis had taken over. There was a lot of cutting back to do and trips to the local recycling centre.

We then had some friends to stay so my time was taken up showing them around Devon.

This time of year, as all GoY members know, is a busy time for the gardener, with seeds to sow and potting on, so a lot of my time has been taken up at Teds Corner.

I also had our street party to organise for the Royal Wedding. We all had a great time at the party with a hat and pudding competition and lots of games. The weather kept fine for us and we all enjoyed the BBQ!

Here is our day in photos

Hello Teds! Glad to have you back! Looks like you had a great day, and well done on raising all that money for a well worth cause. Teds Corner looking good too! It'll take you a while ploughing through all the great blogs and pictures, but don't worry about it...the rest of us can hardly keep up either, and we haven't been away!

Glad you had a good day in Teds Corner. Everyone looked to be enjoying themselves. It will take a while to get ploughed through all the blogs and pictures. Hope you are getting some nice weather as we are in Lincolnshire, cold at night though.

Teds, it is great there is such a good neighbourly spirit in your part of the world...looks like everyone was enjoying the party! :)

Your wicker planters look like they had daffs/tulips which have died off that right? What are you going to put in the wicker planters for summer...or am I totally misguided in my viewing of them? lol

You've been very busy with the decorating at your dad's; I bet he really appreciates your help too.
