My garden is blooming


By sanbaz


Hi Guys,
The weather in Blackpool has been hot and sunny all week, but think its to end starting tomorrow with rain forcast.
We have enjoyed doing a few things in the garden this week keeping it tidy and deadheading some of the spent flowers round and about, a bit of weeding where i can reach in between my plants.
Every year i say im going to split them up but dont and i barely see any soil once its grown and flowered for summer, i couldnt possibly plant anything else lol.
I havent done so many pots etc this year as there is so much going on at the moment mainly my brother being so ill last 7 months and still not sure whats wrong, but will hopefully know on monday when he goes to hospital for results, we know they have found something as they told him but is it sinister or not we dont yet no, but having lost 4 stone and been in constant pain every day for 7 months its not good, it breaks my heart to see him suffer and hope its sorted out soon and pray it isnt what we fear.
Anyway back to my garden and have taken a few pics to show you, i have to say having our gardens is the best medicine and theropy when life is a bit harsh.
Hope your all ok and enjoying your gardens to, hope the bad weather doesnt stay long

Hope you enjoyed the tour and will hope to catch up on all your photos soon but at the moment my brother is my priority, take care and happy gardening to you all :o)) xx

Many thanx to you all for well wishes for my brother, much appreciate it Guys and Girlies, been to see him this morning and having a bad day today so cant wait for them to get him sorted and hear something monday.
The trough i was given by art carole who runs the tuesday group i go to, she wanted someone who she knew would look after it and use it to have it as she wanted to do less gardening and also gave me a lovely stone pot to, i love them.
the Hydragea has gone mad this year with so many blooms to, i have another which is pretty much pot bound so chopped it back ready to disguard and its grown again and flowered so must try and rescue it from the pot haha.
I have to say i dont think about where to plant anything, i just do it reguardless of colour or hight half the time, but it all mingles and i like it that way, if its perfect it would stress me out worrying about where things should or shouldnt go and colours,,, so no not for me even if i love perfect gardens, i stress out enough haha.
had some rain and wind lastnight and not have had to wedge canes across the front of my pond baskets as they almost went over , but luckerly the net stopped that happening, so hope the canes help, sunshine now so may go for a walk to blow the cobwebs off.
enjoy your day everyone :o))) xx

Sad news about my brother, it is bad as we thought but untill more scans have been done friday then going to manchester christies hospital to see specialist, will then know if they can help him, so im praying they can, but he is very weak and frail, cant eat much if anything some days.
so i will be spending most of my spare time with him and my sister-in-law to help and suport them both.
thanx again for all your well wishes. xxx

24 Jun, 2013


Thinking of you San, so sorry the news was not as you hoped, they can do so much nowadays and do hope the specialist has good news for you all.

24 Jun, 2013


thankyou Neena, finally gave him pain relief which works after 7 months of none stop pain, so today he enjoyed the day without pain, i stayed with him and his wife all day, nice to chat and relax, we all trying to be possitive. x

Just caught up with your blog, Sanbaz. So sorry to hear about your brother but hope the specialist can do something to help but such a worry for you all. As you say, gardens can be a comfort at times like this.
