Garden writing lifts me up.

That’s A First

A garden centre visit was squeezed in at the very last moment, without advance planning.

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.

  1. Good morning Fred. Whenever we are giving someone directions to our house, the green door is the easiest way for the to find our house!
    Have a great weekend, a chara.

    1. Mmm…. might not be confined to plants! But on a positive note I resisted the urge to buy an expensive smart watch an hour earlier. So, I figured I had money saved. 😅
