Second time around as my mobile broadband connection disappeared.
Last night I set off to see Peter Corry in concert in Armagh, this was the 4th time I've been to his concert and I'd go again it's hard to believe that it's 17 years since winning a Talent competition which has taken him to where he is today. Such a variety of music, Musicals, Opera and popular songs over the decades. On the way down the winding road between the Caledon and Tynan Estates a fabulous glowing low moon kept appearing from behind the trees and hills, I wish I'd had the camera and the right equipment to capture the scene. As I drove into Armagh it was a wonderful sight behind the Cathedral on the hill. After the concert Kate gave me my Christmas present of 4 David Austin Roses all packaged up and this morning I opened it up to see which other varieties I now had. The package contained four repeat flowering roses -Eglantyne - soft pink, Winchester Cathedral- white, Brother Cadfael- pink and Benjamin Britten - crimson. They are now resealed in their package in the basement until I can plant them up, my plan is to get 4 large terracotta pots and have them that they can be placed out hopefully in flower for caroline's June wedding. Definitely going to order some more including standards - think Darcy Bussell is what I will go for as I plan to move the hydrangeas from the two large terrcotta pots either side of the french doors from the entrance hall - dinning room, think that roses underplanted would give a fabulous display.
I also hope I sowed the seeds in Johnny's head about a tunnel, Hoey sent me details of how she constructed hers and we actually have some materials her that will work so hopefully happy days as I would love to have pots ready to move into position for the wedding as well as being able to grow more veg.
Cold but fabulous day in the sun birds busy hurtling to and fro from the feeder, not much can be done outside so it's a planning day.
