climbing geraniums and others
Just had a peek into the glasshouse and took these up to the kitchen for inspection and all doing great and thanks to a packing I got and thought it might work and it did flowers on two of the plants.

Comfy up there
My house plants had to take a hike up high over Christmas and seem to be doing ok some are in the spare room some in the porch which is not heated but look ok I paid a visit to the glass house and all looking fine.
We went to Woodies today and was not tempted at the Orchids at €3 99 as I have never been lucky with them.
Greg and myself are going to Dublin to buy a book for each other a little after Christmas prezzie for each other, oh I wonder where we will end up Greg likes Borders and I like Easons but we will see.
We have to go by bus as all darts are not running to Bray but it will be different on a bus a treat I would say for Greg as I dont think he has done it ever but we said we will not take the car.

Hope Santa was good to all Garden.iers

Wishing you all a happy and peaceful Christmas
Heres to all on Garden.ie have a great rest and drink a little and eat loads but most of all enjoy!
I was fed up with white trees so I used these Christmas decorations as a change.
Oh I hear Santas bells I am off to bed night .................

The guy on the beach
This guy is 32 years only and has been sleeping in this open shelter for about 6 months now so my friend and myself have been talking to him for a while now he said he tried the shelters around and he could not take the fighting and the drunks as he does'nt do drugs or drink, I cant believe he is still alive as last night was the coldest I have ever been and I was in a heated home. The hotel gives him food and a flask, my friend and myself got him boots and socks and he said they make a difference, How long wll he last ? He is a good looking guy, it is such a waste of a life. I asked him if I could take this photo and I told him I might put it up on this site and he said' ok thanks

My candle choir.
This is in our house for 25 years as I bought it in one of the real pound shops and I got one for each of my sisters at the time it is a candle and each head has a wick and God help me if anyone lites it I will not be responsible for what I would do.
23 December 2010 00:04:38
I love Christmas and as I had flu I was a bit late putting up the decorations this year and with our Grandaughter we make it special for her and for me I think I have not grown up and this year it is so beautiful, I love all shopping , baking , making presents , carols the lot.
21 December 2010 20:32:04
I love the snow only for photos as you all can see so here is another I love this one
21 December 2010 19:13:14
This morning Greg and myself drove down to the beach to see if we could get a shot of the sunrise but so dark and not a sign we meet so many people doing the same had a chat and returned for breakfast and as I was clearing up I just got a glimps of the sun it looked like it was teasing me a cloud just let it be seen of a few seconds and by the time I got the camera it was gone so I thought that was it, went upstairs to do some tidying in my sons bedroom there it was peeping again and I had the camera ready this time and this is it
21 December 2010 10:40:39
Not a sign
I was sitting in the heat of the car waiting and this is the only view that was at the beach.
21 December 2010 07:51:38
Myself and a sister went for walk last night to take a few photos. It was magic a lot of people doing the same so we were not mad, called to another Sister and we walked to the beach so clear and clean loved it , but this poor guy was still standing with his hand out when we were walking home .
I will see is he still there this morning.
21 December 2010 00:44:10
Hope you all like it

My homemade Angel
I made this many years ago and nobody in the family like but after all the time I spent making it it come down from my attic and takes up its place like all my other decorations do much to the dislike of the family I love it and thought I would share it with you.
17 December 2010 00:17:38
One set of lights will do
Oh I have just spent 3 hours trying to untangle 3 sets of lights and just ended up using 1 set and it looks fine, I spent today up in the attic down in the basement [and yes we have a basement ] up in the attic and then closed up and then the fight started with the lights I am just going to get rid of all the other lights and just keep the one set , as I got no dinner and now am sitting here I should be in my bed.
16 December 2010 08:01:26
With decorations being put up and plants having to be moved and am afraid forgotten about I just notticed this as I went into the dining room to pull back the curtains, it seem to be happy and flowering away even if I have not seen it for a few days I will leave it where it is it might be better.
15 December 2010 07:31:54
I was in Woodies about a month ago and they had a few plants that looked dead on a bargain trolly and I saw this and it was just a mess so I thought I will try and give it a little TLC and am happy to say this is what it looks like yesterday.

My new plant
Jacinta put up a plant a few days ago and I thought I had the same one so I went to visit my friend who gave it to me and took a photo of the plant she slipped and gave me a cutting we still dont know if it is the same one Jacinta had a journal so if Jacinta will let me know the name please .
This is my friends one and is so big and has been flowering 3 months now and she has another one ready to flower.
12 December 2010 09:14:51
Up early this morning had breakfast and I thought would I go for my walk knowing that my friend does'nt walk on Sunday's and got my coat boots and gloves on and Greg said he would come with me and when we got down to the beach not a sign of my friend the sun but we walked a little and I turned back to look and there it was late! but what a sight it was no clouds I was so happy as I have now got the one I wanted.
09 December 2010 09:25:37
It is a beautiful morning out there and sun is shining but very low in the sky, a lot of people out walking on the beach and that is a good sign. Hopefully we are going to see Roundwood in the snow today if the roads are ok .
08 December 2010 19:48:01
This morning was realy to cold for my early walk , we went at about 4.15 pm and the sky over the horizion was a lovely pink, so I had my camera as usual and we spotted this guy surfing alone very brave I thought.

Rachel at last Christmas get together
Just heard from Rachel and all is well and has no internet and is happy she got heating oil thru today it took 6 people to dig the usual through . It was getting bad and thinks her Orchids might have suffered from the cold. Just to let you all know how she is.
04 December 2010 19:09:45

I was in the Botanic gardens during the summer and just a thought !!! Fran could get a big piece of nice wood and carve it and then put all our names on it.
03 December 2010 21:26:46
So Sorry if some Garden.ie members did not see my 3 journals on this being cancelled but if you think there is anybody I have left out and you are friends please let me know and I will get in touch I have had a few members who did not see the journals. Sorry to bore you with another journal but it would be no joke if a member ended up at the garden center and it was closed.
By the way Fran nappy changed 3 times ok.
03 December 2010 18:53:28
