Christmas gift.

Christmas gift.

Despite the bad weather we had a visit here from some members of the family a little earlier than usual.I was given a gift from my niece and nephew as a suprise for the garden.When i saw what they were,they put summer weather back into my mind straight away.A mushroom planting kit and a small pocket encyclopedia on gardening.Two young gardeners that were happy when on brief visits during the summer to help me out in the garden if they could brightened the winter weather for me.

Ah, that's such a lovely present. So sweet of them and obviously you have made a big impression on them, John. Well done. PS lovely looking flower on the front of that encyclopaedia!

Your niece and nephew are very thoughtful. Well done to them. Cant wait to hear how you get on with the mushrooms. I have tried them twice and nothing came of them.

Very thoughtful niece and nephew - your enthusiasm is rubbing off on them.  The mushroom kit looks intriguing - please keep us posted with how well it works out.

Thanks you all for the kind words.

It will be interesting for me to see the outcome of them.
