Hello Q. I thought you might be interested in this blog http://www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch/blog/index.asp Wonderful roses! How lovely. I have some asparagus for the allotment :-)
Hi Chris,Oh thank you!I do the Great Backyard Bird Count every year too. This is my tenth year. It starts tomorrow! I have been gearing up all week. I hope to take some pictures and maybe have one that is good enough to submit for the contest. It is wonderful that the bird count is in the U.K. too!I printed off my count sheets and plan on being at the dining room table taking the tally.Yumm... asparagus! I never have grown it. We have talked about putting a patch in for years yet it never has happened. I am looking forward to seeing the plants in your allotment. What growing zone are you? I am a zone 5, but I push the envelope to a 6!Soon we will be out in the dirt and with the plants. I long for it! In the mean time I have my indoor gardens to keep me in good spirits.Thanks for thinking of me.~Q~
Gorgeous Valentine roses - how thoughtful!
Hi Deb,Oh, I was so frustrated! I had this darling post about the roses all done up and Blogger would not let the photos post! I tried many times too. I took a couple of different photos on the 15th and they worked. As Sprite say,"Mercury in retrograde." I go about the house smelling each rose. With 48 I have lots to sniff on! My husband knows I am a flower person! He gives roses for Valentine's Day and Anniversary. Other times he will bring me mixed bouquets. I am always surprised too. I don't expect the flowers. I alway think it is very kind of him.During the winter I do have my forced bulbs yet I seem to need cut flowers for the big vases.I will dry all the petals once they are over and add them to my big bowls of dried roses. I have all the roses my husband has given me over these last 35 years. ~Q~
