Bargain plants

I love them!

(I originally wrote this in July).

I’m a sucker for a bargain; and if you’re the same, then look at at your peril, those enticing plant catalogues that come through the post. I am talking, in particular, about Van Meuwen and J Parker. They are simply full of offers that are too good to leave behind; it would just be such a waste! I spent hours on their websites choosing what I wanted. Then I added up how much it all came to and thought Oh Shit. So I had to go through choosing what I could manage without. I did pretty well, considering.

My husband, whose opinion on gardening can be picked up on by his statement that he’d be happy to concrete over the whole lot (“It would be cheaper too”). I haven’t been entirely honest with him about how much I have actually spent! I am hoping the postman goes past the front door (where his office is situated) and brings them to me round the back. If he does find out, a little bribery may be in order.

Garden,

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)

When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
