The Star of the Show!!

The Star of the Show!!

The Star of the Show!!

All I want to do today is to get out in my garden. However Big daughters first year in UCD has ended and although she is in Dublin, the contents of her life in Dublin have been dumped in my hall, my kitchen not to mention, my dining room and upstairs. Now all I have to do is sort it and find a home for it all!!!  I cant even begin to clean my house until this is all sorted.  But just to cheer me up I took this picture of the "STAR of the SHOW" as I was putting out the washing.  Ahhh beautiful!!!! Now I am focused to get the house sorted and get out!!!

You need to dump it on the floor of HER bedroom. That's what I did. Nobody could get in for a few days but she tidied it away the day before yesterday : )

Is that a Viburnum, Mon? It looks a bit like a lace cap hydrangea!

It's Viburnum - Wedding Cake shrub Rachel. It is sooo pretty!!!
