Primula Rosie

Once again, bought from the J Parker mail order catalogue. £13.95 for 66 plug plants.

I’m actually really disappointed in these flowers. For a start only a quarter have actually flowered, but the main thing is that I just don’t like them. The catalogue picture shows them looking like pretty, curly petaled flowers – almost similar to carnations – well they do look like that when they’re just coming from bud, but then they open up and look the same as primroses. And instead of the pastel shades I was expecting, half are bog standard yellow, and the rest are really garish garage-flower-type colours.

Oh I suppose they aren’t that bad, and a bit of bright colour at the time of year is nice. They seem to be very tolerant of the frost too. But they aren’t what I wanted, that’s all.

17/5/09 – I sent these photos to J Parker just to ask if they sent the right ones, and they simply refunded me for them in full. Can’t moan at that!

Garden,

The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
