With the blessing of the recent rains, the grass around the
house was threatening to eat me up.
Gone are the days when I could use a lawn mower or even
my beloved brush-cutter that did such sterling service in keeping
a number of kilometres of road verge fire safe,
now I was hoping to just cut the grass around my present
abode, with a brush-cutter where I have to yank an electrical
cord around. Found one I can (maybe) manage to lug about
the same place also has a garden centre . . . a death trap for
the likes of me . . .
can you imagine paying good money to buy heaps of work??
Sure, that's me all over, and I really held myself back and only
10 punnets of seedlings,
a blueberry bush in a small pot
(need to pot it up pronto before I can prepare a place for it),
a passionfruit (ditto)
and two bare rooted roses
(as though my 150
weren't enough for me
a couple of punnets of stocks for winter cheer
violas, pansies, primulas and lobelias (ditto)
inevitably, another cyclamen, the large leaf to the right is
darling little violas in shades of pink
and how could I possibly leave these pretty faced pansies behind?
I guess, you've guessed it . . . I couldn't!
My only excuse is that I needed some flowers to post during winter
tee hee hee . . .
