Discovered this next door in a long forgotten about little house garden . Planted beside a small gate that opens into the garden .

Flower arranging

29 July 2017 17:08:00

I think I have this flower arranging thingy sorted . Actually I dislike cutting my flowers for this purpose but visitors arriving deserve a colourful welcome . Even better when they are all free in the garden . I don't think I could do it full time though .

Jacinta D Jacinta D 29 July 2017 17:48:52

Quite often, men are better at flower arranging than women. Well done, you. Lovely colourful welcome for your visitors.

fraoch fraoch 29 July 2017 18:25:24

Lovely!I usually prefer to leave them in the garden too.

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 29 July 2017 20:39:29

Very colourful!

JoanG JoanG 29 July 2017 20:45:07

Lovely, your visitors will feel very welc. 

Scrubber Scrubber 29 July 2017 23:01:50

Declan its very good for the Zen! Dont fight it! And its a great way to enjoy flowers right under your nose as it were.

I think cut flowers from your own garden, or someone else's, always look great indoors and yours are no exception. Those dahlias are lovely.

Mary B Mary B 30 July 2017 19:57:02

Can't go wrong with beautiful flowers like those, well done!

Photo Album .. no photos

22 July 2017 00:43:23

I created a new album, named it , saved it but cannot add any photos ??? What's up now ? I am doing it with iPhone so maybe that's still an issue with web master and IT ? Grrrrr

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 22 July 2017 07:52:15

I don't think that you can upload an album from either a iPhone or iPad.  

Jacinta D Jacinta D 22 July 2017 08:17:12

I think we'll have to wait for the new site before stuff can be accessible from iPads or iPhones.

DeclanfromTipp DeclanfromTipp 22 July 2017 23:40:08

Can it be that difficult to get an IT techie to sort this ..... Iam beginning to think GARDEN.IE is run on a shoestring . It's a bit amateurish in this day and age 

Dick Warner

17 July 2017 18:26:42

Strange to find no mention of Dick Warners death on the 16th June last . He had his usual interesting piece on wildlife in the back of our magazine . I suppose it was gone to print before he died ? I liked Dicks writings and his other works on TV too . RIP Dick

fraoch fraoch 17 July 2017 19:02:02

yes, I enjoyed his articles too.

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 17 July 2017 20:49:06

I heard it announced on TV at the time, a sudden death. Enjoyed his writings as well. 

Jacinta D Jacinta D 17 July 2017 21:49:04

I usually go to Dick Warner's articles in the Irish Garden before any others. He was a very learned man on all aspects of wild life. He'll be missed.

Plant Swop

07 July 2017 22:25:01

Went to collect some Bee supplies today and a new friend said she had some plants to swop ! I got more than I bargained for ... and just when I'd almost finished planting out all my own stuff too !! I have her some Aubergines , Peppers , A Paulownia T and some other  annuals . 

Dick Dick 07 July 2017 23:10:21

Well done Declan

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 08 July 2017 00:16:31

I am sure you will squeeze the peppers and aubergines into the glasshouse.

DeclanfromTipp DeclanfromTipp 09 July 2017 19:17:05

No I gave her the Aubergines and Peppers ! Thiugh I now have a Melon to plant ...
