Latest Pics From My Outside Greenhouse.

Remember last week when I planted up some perennials and they all looked forlorn and thirsty? 

Well.  Since all the rain in Hibernia (land of eternal winter) they have perked up and enjoying the Spring outdoors in their new positions in their plant pots.

It just goes to show you don't  have to a garden or a polytunnel or a greenhouse to grow your plants.

I'm  back working on one of the islands so I probably won't be blogging so much for a few weeks.  Besides there is very poor coverage on the island and the the Tinternet and Tweb is virtually non existant.

I will catch up with the blogs I follow and and answer any comments tonight.

  4. It's only temporary Linda but it's good to see people who I have worked with before. Hosepipe water is ok from a well. Mains could contain chemicals and rainwater is very good too if you collect it. Free nitrogen from above. Thanks.

  5. Enjoy your island break - in a way the lack of internet is a bliss

  6. Thanks. It's certainly good to have conversations with other people for a change. Human beings are meant to talk.

Pictures From My West Cork Gardens In June.

 I couldn't think of much to write about so I have had a week blog break.  This morning I walked around the gardens and the flowers were...
