HANGING BASKET DAY 2019

Here we are again, ready for our annual visit to Four Seasons to select our hanging baskets. This year I feel I’m actually ready as we have sorted out the new balcony, replaced the irrigation system, and got the whiskey barrels, drilled and planted ahead of the baskets. All the basket hangers are up so today should be plain sailing!

Not too many buyers at the nursery and the selection begins in one of the outer greenhouses. One for sure and a maybe. Back to the main building………

Plenty here, and three more get selected along with a couple of the tomato plants with giant spreads and plenty of fruit. A few packets of seeds completes the mission and we are soon loaded and on our way.

Sadly I was not to know what was going on, however, the baskets are up and locked, tomatoes swing from the maple and fresh roses are planted.

The Maple in full fruit for the LAST time!

Baskets up

……. and locked

Good display

Roses planted, perhaps I have some use after all ?

Monday and I’m told to help with yet another Gazebo, the reason why this was purchased is completely unclear to me, no doubt it will be revealed in the fullness of time. It also seems I purchased another bed that I knew nothing about on my UK card so that will be vetoed today. Also, apparently, the house is up for sale along with other items. Seems I’m also surplus to requirements as well. Amazing how people change, along with their interests, and what was once  fun and pleasure is replaced with loathing and hatred. It would seem the age of compassion and understanding are dead.
