As my heading say's , yesterday was just a dream day and as said" by Fran the first garden visit of the year ...and a full day painting in Skerries...today.

First a big Thank you to Fran it was just as the Doctor ordered for me as I have had a few bouts of sickness since Christmas and was great to get out with some great gardeners like Paddy and Mary .....I am not leaving Fran and Joan out of that league but I am a runner in and all I can say was privileged to be in all your company ...

Thank you Mary and Paddy I had a wonderful day your garden is to die for ...

Happy Saint Patricks Day to you all

Yesterday was awful we were nearly wased out of it ....sick of being stuck in the house but my poor hubby has had flu since wednesday and it was his birthday yesterday and such a bad day we just stayed at home .......I was bored so at about 6 30      rain stopped and out I went with the camera...............I liked what I captured just as it was getting dark.........

Looking out now it is looking promising for the day to be a good one ....so   I  am getting out for a while as I need a lot of jobs finished ..

Enjoy !

I have been cutting back on some of my house plants ....mooving them to new places as we are getting a bit bogged down with so many ..........and I lost 4 while away a few weeks ago ...Some plants will be going out to the glasshouse as they are getting so dusty and it is hard to clean some of them......the ones in the main bathroom do best and never need cleaning just a little watering once in a while ..............so that job finished     and now to get my garden into shape .....I have been lucky in the last week weather so nice I got a lot done but so much more to be done .

Looks like it is going to be a nice day so get out and enjoy all ..........

First cut of grass ....

This morning I was waiting for the washing to finish and to put it out on the line as it was a lovely dry day and very windy so I had about 3/4 of an hour wait for the wash as it was a white wash so down I went to get the lawn mower ....oh! it was great as we have a new bin for compost and it was so quick   to empty the grass into it ..I tidied around one side only so will get the rest done maybe Monday  if the weather is ok ....it does the heart good to get out and feel the soil.................

2 years ago we were at Johnstown Garden Christmas party    and both Greg and I had flu so we decided to stay indoors and not buy any plants ......so later in the month we went to our local garden center and we got this tree and it has grown faster than we thought , we have cut back some but it has given us great flowers last year  and this year is the best we just love it , it is ever green and flowers from now on until April ..
