My Grandmother's Kitchen Sink Filled With Sedums.


 That's  a photo of my Grandmother's sink.    The veg artist left a comment  yesterday saying  Sedums look good in old sinks. When we did up (renovated) the old farmhouse I  saved the old pot sink and filled it with topsoil.  Then I planted it up with Lamiums, Cranesbill Geraniums, Valerian and Sedums.  I sometimes plant bulbs in them.

I wonder how many times that sink was full of glasses when they use to dance in the kitchen? 



I wonder what my Grandmother would think of all our white goods like the washing machine that washes our clothes in fourteen minutes, the dish washer, microwave and Henry vacuum cleaner?

  1. I remember my Gran out in the back yard wringing the wet laundry through her old mangle. A horrible job on a freezing cold day.

  2. Hi JayCee. My mother once got her hand stuck in a mangle. Ouch!
    My grandma use to walk down the lane to the well for buckets of water before they got the electricity and a pump. I might buy the wife a dolly tub and posser for Christmas? Instead of our Candy washing machine. Even I am trained up to use it and it's got a fourteen minute wash cycle. I can even use the dishwasher but it won't empty itself😊.

  3. I can go back to those times. We had a tin bath that hung on the outside wall, this was hauled in each week and the boiler was put on for the hot water, we then took turns in the same water to have a bath. They wouldn't put up with that today, our lot have showers every day. lol

  4. Great memories Briony. I remember in the late sixties when we had an outside toilet and the water would freeze in winter. I always have a shower when it's my birthday👍,

    "David! David! Are you there lad?...What the feck is my sink doing being used as a feckin' plant pot? When St Peter lets you in here expect a good old-fashioned clout!"

  6. 😊Ha,ha. My grandmother loved her flowers. She had terracotta clay plant pots full of Geraniums, Rose bushes and Hydrangeas in her gardens. Is Heaven divided up into different counties or your favourite hobbies? I will be in the allotments, walking and Prog Rock bit. There must be some great super Rock groups in Heaven.

    1. In Heaven's Yorkshire section, Tetley's bitter will be free and Yorkshire puddings will be served with every meal. At night I will go online to book an angel. I prefer female angels but it takes all sorts.

    2. It makes you want to believe YP when you describe an after life like that. I would also like Vimto and Theakston's Old Peculier oh and that 1950s pop group: Ben Shaws.

      Delete
    3. Oh yes The Ben Shaws! I remember their greatest hit - "Dandelion and Burdock" - now that's what I call "pop" music!

      Delete
    4. I have not seen Dandelion and Burdock for ages. Another one of the things we miss from Blighty.

  7. Your granny danced in the kitchen??? I don't think either of mine ever danced in their lives. I only knew one of them, and the only tunes she knew were the ones she played on the church organ each Sunday! And thanks for rubbing it in - you've got a butlers sink filled with sedums and I want one!

  8. Hi the veg artist. I believe she did Irish dancing in the kitchen when she got married. My gran never drank alcohol. Hope you like the Sedums in my grandmother's sink?

  9. Nice using old containers like that. They are as full of character as of flowers. We have some of Ks old wine barrels cut in half as planters

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Linda. The wine barrels sound good. Container gardening is a good way of putting on a floral display and you don't need to have a garden.

I was diagnosed of HSV few years ago, my doctor told me there is no permanent cure for the disease, i was given antiviral medication to reduce the outbreak of the virus, at the initial stage it was not so bad till it progressed to the end middle stage were i had difficulties going about my daily functions I was totally devastated till I saw a comment about Dr. festus , who have used herbal medicines to cure virus like HERPES, HPV, ALS, when I contacted Dr. festus via email, after a few discussion, he prepared the medicine and ship it to me, when I received the herbal medicine, I took it according to his instructions, few weeks later I went to the hospital to have a blood test and the test came back negative, i was cured and free from this Virus... That is why I am sharing my testimony so that people can also contact him for help, via his email: drfestusherbalsolutioncentre@gmail.com or

  13. I’m recommending Dr Uromi to everyone who have herpes simplex virus to get the cure from him. I was diagnose of genital herpes in 2018 and i have been searching and asking questions to see if i could get something to cure the disease because i did not believe what the doctors say that no cure is found yet. I came across a comment on Youtube and the person testify how she was cured from herpes and hpv after using Dr Uromi herbal medicine. I quickly contact Dr Uromi and explain my problem to him and he prepare the herbs and send it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to use it and tell me to go for checkup after usage which i did after two weeks of taken the herbal medicine and my result was NEGATIVE. I waited another month and retested the result was still NEGATIVE and my doctor told me that am completely free from herpes. Am so happy and grateful to Dr Uromi for what he has done for me and i will continue to share this for people out there to know that there is cure for herpes. You can contact Dr Uromi on email and WhatsApp to get the cure from him. Email:Druromiherbalhome@gmail.com  and WhatsApp +2349021374574    .

  17. My name is Timothy Eric,i am from USA . Its a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr. USELU, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try Dr. USELU, then i contacted him through his email when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with her to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for check up after 3 weeks of taking the medication. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for check up after a month later , to my greatest surprise my result was negative after the treatment, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 3weeks to be very sure i was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes to reach him through (dr.uselucaregiver@gmail.com) OR Whatsapp him  (+234705289482)

  25. It’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Sikies Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Sikies. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on mail Drsikies@gmail.com He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital, warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Genital, Wart, HPV, Hepatitis A/B, Good luck, HSV, Pregnancy, Ex back.

  29. I was cured of HIV with the use of natural herbs. My name is Alandre and I'm from Texas. I love herbs so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured, I suffered from HIV for 13 years but with the help of Dr. Mark herbal medicine, I was cured within a few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured my Aunty from herpes, as soon as I heard she had herpes, I quickly refer her to Dr.Mark and she was cured too after drinking his herbs.I have referred a lot of people to Dr. Mark and they were all cured from their various illness. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Contact Dr. Mark now, he is a herbalist doctor, Dr. Mark has herbs that cures Hiv, Herpes, diabetics, asthma, hepatitis, STD, cancer, chronic, etc. Contact Dr Mark through his Email address on: blessedlovetemple@gmail.com Please share the good news to other people once you are cured
