Well  apart from gardening , I am getting ready for my visit to see my Brother. That’s  my younger brother , usually get to visit once a year. Living so far apart makes it a Joy to see him and my sister-in-law. I will be taking off next Sunday the 10th June for a week.

 ImageMy basket is doing very well I”m not usually lucking with hanging baskets. But these little Petunia’s have really picked up in the last few days. I decided to go for the wicker baskets instead of the wire one’s. 

I will be baking some Lemon Biscuits today , as it’s pretty dull outside at the moment. Also just have a quick tidy up , have been feeling a bit lazy of late. I put it down to all that heavy grey cloud over head. Even Wile-e has had the laziness. 

Have a Great Week be Happy . 🙂

  1. Love your basket dear friend, I am trying to do the same with herbs but seems I lack some green touch, all my hanging plants seem to rebel , hope you are in great health and wish you a great time with your brother

  4. Hi Sheila, for some unknown reason I am having trouble commenting on your site so if you get a string of messages from me, blame WordPress !! What I am trying to say is that your hanging basket is lovely and that I have been very lazy and not done any! Also I hope that you have a lovely time at your brothers, and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. I hope it gets a bit warmer for you, think you will probably need your mac & wellies ! Safe journey xxx

  5. Well I hope you are enjoying visiting with your Brother Sheila, and Sunday the weather was kinder here.. That basket looks delightful, we have filled ours along our fence, but the cooler weather and wind and rain has meant they have taken a bit of a battering.. So too have some things in the allotment, the sweetcorn got battered down so too did the leeks, We need some Sun again now to cheer them up…
    Your wonderful photo of your basket cheered me up no end… FLowers are such a wonderful Gift of Nature Thank you for sharing.. I hope those Biscuits went down a treat too… Hugs to you Sue xx

    The Petunias look lovely. They remind me of the petunias my mum used to have on her balcony.
