A day off

I have been going pretty much flat out with my helpers for the past while working on the Zen garden it was great to take a day off today. Even better, it was great to spend that day with a fellow-gardener. Jacinta and I spent a lovely day chatting, relaxing and paying a visit to Ratoath Garden Centre, which I have been wanting to visit for a long time! 

Even in November there was still plenty of colour to enjoy as we wandered around, ending up having a lovely lunch in the Wild Flower Cafe!

But before we set off, Jacinta showed me her amazing Nicotiana - still flowering away after two years! This has to be some sort of record!

Thanks for your company today Jacinta! Really enjoyed the whole outing!

Great to have your company, Hazel. It's been too long. Yesterday was my first day ever to see Ratoath GC in winter. Still lots of colour to see.

Good to hear you enjoyed Ratoath. I was there last Autumn and it’s a lovely place to visit.

Must go have a look some time. I have an old college friend from there too, would love to combine it with a visit one day!

Must try and get there in 2018. It is good to take a day off, Hazel.
