And today i got a real thing... my first fern tree was planted beside the river and hope will grow well. A bit nervous about winter time.. Thanks to Dessie (known as Astril on garden.ie) for the offer and delivery.was nice to meet another gardener and get great tips and names, origin countries... gosh i wish, i remember all the names as good as Dessie. Thanks to Clara adopting ducky so we have less to look after and i know, it found a great home. I am looking forward to see you again.

no gardening today
too rainy today... one of these days when i just decided not to garden... not like ran out ideas just need a break... I think i felt like autumn is coming and made me a bit upset. What will happen in the winter, when the flower beds will be sadly empty and plain. Will be too cold to garden and only escape will be inside cactis...
hope will be some sunshine tomorrow just to clear my head from autumn thoughts.
happy gardening to you all ..

well i always wanted one.. can not afford it at the moment so i made one myself in the dead jucca trunk. and the best thing is- if the frost will damage it, not a big lost..
