I travelled back from North Tipp / Galway border last night and what a frightening experience. Flood after flood and worst when I was almost home. Drive through some nasty torrents but luckily made it. The photos today are all from my locality and Parish . Storm Frank now battering the a bartered communities. If this is global warming in Ireland Iam seriously considering leaving !

Happy Christmas Everyone

This is one of the original shrubs from when I moved here in 1991. It has become leggy and neglected. I debated removing it but maybe I can cut it back some and improve it. Can anyone make it , it's got green glossy leaves and nice white flowers at the moment .

Felt good today to get back into some gardening mode. The Arucaria is now in its long term spot . I almost felt like putting up a " Planted by ... On ......" Plaque . The Skimmia and five grasses also got planted so all in all it was nice to be out and about . Mary arrived home from town and when I heard her say " never again " I knew I had enjoyed a nice mornings work and hadnt missed out !!

The hens arrived to have a scratch about shortly afterwards .

Half Price Bulbs

woodies must be making room for Santa stuff. All bulbs half price and here's me after spending a small fortune six weeks ago planting up all my tulips. Not to worry sure there's always room for more ... Two packs of Scilla for €1.50!!! I hear these self seed too 

What's this guy then

What's this guy then

I seem to have a bulb left over from the Dahlia and Gladioli tasking. Wonder what this chappie is ? Don't think it's s Dahlia Cormlet or a Glad either ?
