31 Jan, 2011

Thank you...so which day are you all coming round?

31 Jan, 2011

 

everyday?

31 Jan, 2011

 

Ok...I like Rose wine xxxx

31 Jan, 2011

 

funny i thought you would be thinking of the wine - have you got a cellar?

31 Jan, 2011

 

No 4 bed detached and a fridge in the garage!

31 Jan, 2011

 

I also have a fridge in the garage.....that's a booze fridge of course....extra fridge just for the bottles!! Plus a wine rack in the kitchen! AND I like a glass of rose in the summer time, but in the winter it has to be Red or White Rioja! This is another lovely photo Ann. This time last year I was putting up the new wooden arch. Tomorrow will be February! Goodbye January, don't come back too soon! I will also soon have two spare bedrooms with bathroom each...you two should come up here!

31 Jan, 2011

 

And I have your address, just tell me when xxxxxx The booze fridge was the last piece in the picture...so like me !! Along with my love of Rioja xx Annie

31 Jan, 2011

 

Unbelieveable!! Any time Annie, the 'green room' is always available as it was my daughter's and she has her own flat now. My son Callum is moving in with her mid April, so that will be us back to quiet again. Perhaps I should start a B&B!!...not for you of course, you would be my guest!! 3 course dinner and Rioja inclusive! :))

31 Jan, 2011

 

Im happy with B&B Karen...full english naturally..not quite at the stage of wine with breakfast...yet!

2 Feb, 2011

 

I do a fine cooked breakfast...we call it a 'full Scottish' tetrarch!! :))

2 Feb, 2011

 

Can I have a touch of Yorkshire? I LURVE black pudding!

2 Feb, 2011

 

Tet!!!! you're not going to eat Yorkshire are you????

2 Feb, 2011

 

We have to convince her to come along first..

2 Feb, 2011

 

We are off to Scotland in a coach Annella, Im driving..we are visiting gardens and distilleries and Sticki and I are borrowing two Monkey Puzzle Trees with our Kneepads and they are going back in the coach with everyone on the roof or in a trailer....Coming?

2 Feb, 2011

 

i didnt know you were driving Tet!??

2 Feb, 2011

 

Thats the trees in the coach, the rest, wherever..but suggest you get in the trailer cos they have kneepads to sit on!

2 Feb, 2011

 

Yep!! When do we leave??

2 Feb, 2011

 

where will all the plants go? and the whisky? i hope we have large overhead lockers??

2 Feb, 2011

 

Well I would hope the whisky inside us by then..plants and trees in the coach..overhead locks for those who dont like trailers!

2 Feb, 2011

 

and seat belts?

2 Feb, 2011

 

Well the seats can have belts if they like..I dont wear 'em..cant find one big enough

2 Feb, 2011

 

i was thinking they would be useful to restrain wayward plants? or anything else that needed tying down?

2 Feb, 2011

 

LOL Chairwoman when she get overexcited with the police escort!!

2 Feb, 2011

 

I haven't been in touch with all the distilleries yet Tet:-( Are we having an overnight stop at Karens? Annella, isn't it hard to think of how lovely your garden is at this time of the year. Mine looks horrible, and everything is being blown away too as we've had very strong wind for 2 days and nights (I don't mean us personally before you say anything) I'm sure yours looks ok even now as it's more mature, but this pic is gorgeous ¦:-)

5 Feb, 2011

 

Ba I have never seen my garden looking so bad, the wind is trashing everything that survived the freeze :o((
The Cistus in the pic is one of the plants that still looks ok at the minute, so fingers crossed...

5 Feb, 2011

 

I bought a beautiful yellow striped phormium, a large one and quite dear with the postage. The biggest leaves have blown off (if you'll parden the expression) I may as well got a smaller one lol. I only put it out the day before the winds ¦:-(

5 Feb, 2011

 

oh no! how frustrating is that?

5 Feb, 2011

 

I should have brought it in but thought it was sheltered enough. It was still in its pot. :-(

5 Feb, 2011

 

I bought this Cistus last year and I love it, although mine seems to want to grow more prostrate than upwards. I'd be so chuffed if it eventually looked as beautiful as yours Annella.
