So Quiet

07 May 2010 22:51:54

This site is so quiet.

It is really odd.

I think it is quieter than in the winter of 2009/2010.

Is everyone too busy in their gardens to write?

Yea, I was just thinking the same.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 07 May 2010 22:55:04

Surely they can't be still weeding!!!!!

Rachel Rachel 07 May 2010 22:55:16

What the heck is going on?

Jacinta D Jacinta D 07 May 2010 22:56:40

Maybe they're on 'Slug-Watch'. That's Spider's fault!!!!!

Rachel Rachel 07 May 2010 22:57:25

Spring is the time when we do the most gardening work. So why is it so quiet?

Maybe everyone is waiting until summer to show the pictures of their immaculate gardens!

Rachel Rachel 07 May 2010 22:58:51

What are you looking to buy at the Rare Plant Fair on Sunday, Jacinta?

Jacinta D Jacinta D 07 May 2010 22:59:32

Well, I am photographing mine, warts and all!  I hide NOTHING!

Rachel Rachel 07 May 2010 23:00:32

You are very honest. I hide plenty : )

Jacinta D Jacinta D 07 May 2010 23:00:36

Nothing in particular, Rachel. Have to see what's on offer. You?

Rachel Rachel 07 May 2010 23:06:11

Well, I am under strict instruction not to spend money since the recent tree fern purchases but...

I want a Romneya coulteri and I want a Lotus berthelotii  and a Bird of Paradise and a Helichonium and...

I will be claiming that these are all presents from you lot, my garden.ie friends : )

Thanks, Liga. Bill said there's somewhere selling Romneya for €6 at the Fair tomorrow. Will take a look. I'm not paying €20 although I do have many ideal spots for the plant.

Work keeping me off this site - not my garden.  But can't complain as there is the bloody recession on.  Beggars can't be choosers.
