If you’re as up-to-date with my goings-on as I am, you’ll know that I was in Clonmel yesterday. You’ll know about the car, The Food Hub and a little bit about Irish history.
I neglected to mention that a garden centre visit was squeezed in at the very last moment, without advance planning. I was operating on auto.
I also got some polyanthuses to add a bit of colour. For the moment, they’ll do nicely around the base of this pot.
And, faoi dheireadh, a beautiful Christmas wreath gift has been placed on the pot, together with a few grasses in the centre. Normally, we’d have this hanging on the door knob, but I like it here.
It was my first visit of the year to a garden centre. Eighty euro. Seventeen plants. Phormium, heather, cyclamen, pansy, Carex, Juncus (Pencil Grass) and polyanthus. Satisfaction levels jumped a notch or two above normal. It’s great to get outside for a bit. Juncus is a plant I’ve never had nor heard of. I’m glad I got a chance to get out.
