TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 25 January 2018 10:41:22

sallysarah sallysarah 25 January 2018 14:35:50

SORRY thought it was Friday today, even though it was my Knitting Group morning!!!    MASSIVE senior moment LOL

Dick Dick 26 January 2018 10:50:50

Great to see the flowers in bloom, Sally. Plenty of sunshine although cold to day but the next few days should be quite mild for January.


PeterW PeterW 26 January 2018 20:53:51

Love the cyclamen, something I must get as I only have two small seedlings in the garden this year but must rectify that

Gdn programme

13 December 2017 13:53:55

Judy Dench is in a new programme -  My Passion for Trees BBC1  8pm,  next Wednesday 20th DEC.  Reading up about it I think it will appeal to gdn.ie members.

Cold and windy hail showers here today.  Managed to go shopping earlier this mornin.

keep warm!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 13 December 2017 15:13:28

Darn! I thought it was tonight.

Looking forward to it, Sally. I think there are two programmes in the series. 


MargieD MargieD 13 December 2017 19:58:20

I saw the trailer for it last night, it looks good. 

Thanks for that Sally,  think I'll put it on record now in case I forget it.

Snow under blue skies

11 December 2017 07:48:15

Snow yesterday afternoon.   Croagh Patrick looking resplendent in the winter wonderland.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 11 December 2017 08:54:59

That's gorgeous, Sally. 

LindaB LindaB 11 December 2017 10:23:01

Beatiful the white looks amazing with the blue sky!

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 11 December 2017 11:52:17

That's lovely Sally. Wouldn't fancy climbing "the reek" today somehow :-)

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 11 December 2017 22:28:52

AitAlainn AitAlainn 12 December 2017 11:06:20

Fab Sally. No snow down in West Clare - rarely see any!

JoanG JoanG 12 December 2017 22:08:15

Beautiful scenes, Sally; no snow in Dublin either. 

MargieD MargieD 13 December 2017 20:02:44

What a amazing area you live in Sally. Your photos are beautiful. 

No proper (deep) snow here in Kildare, thankfully. Too much rain.. 

Christmas greenery

06 December 2017 08:42:46

everything for this Christmas decoration came from our garden.  A local group got together last week, meeting up in the local Community Hall.  The whole purpose was to show how one can use greenery from our gardens to make a nice Christmas arrangement.  Thanks to June for her expert advice.  We’re looking ahead to meeting up again before Easter, so will be looking at my garden in a different light!!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 06 December 2017 11:03:48

That's beautiful, Sally. You really can't beat FRESH greenery for the house at Christmas.

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 06 December 2017 14:44:08

Looks fantastic and so much better than plastic decorations and think of all the fun and pleasure you had from making it. I watched Kirsty Allsop last night on Channel 4 and she had some very talented craft workers showing their skills. 

JoanG JoanG 06 December 2017 21:47:07

Wow Sally, that looks so professional and a lovely arrangement.  Well done!

Jackie Jackie 07 December 2017 07:40:14

That's beautiful. 

LindaB LindaB 07 December 2017 16:47:17

That is lovely Sally.

Myrtle Myrtle 09 December 2017 16:57:11

Looks great, Sally. Hope yourself and Peter keep well.

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 10 December 2017 22:01:06

That's a lovely arrangement Sally. Our little Gardening Club in Borris-in-Ossory does that type of thing at our December meeting every year and we all go home amazed at what we make out of bits from our own and our neighbours gardens! I'm not a great fan of fllower arranging in general, but this way of brightening up the winter is very welcome! I look orward to seeing what you create at Easter too! 

sallysarah sallysarah 11 December 2017 07:39:32

Thanks for all your nice comments!

new garden programme.

02 December 2017 07:58:05

I see that Monty Don has a new series mid January 2018 - My Paradise Gardens!  It will be on BBC 2.  Photos attached of Christmas cactus.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 02 December 2017 08:14:14

Thanks for that, Sally. I'm looking forward to that already.

Lovely Christmas cacti.

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 02 December 2017 13:13:55

Christmas cactus are performing great this year, love the white one. Brilliant to hear that there is a new gardening programme starting in Janurary. 

PeterW PeterW 03 December 2017 08:47:43

Thanks, Looking forward to that

Jackie Jackie 05 December 2017 17:13:36

Excellent! Love the Cacti.
