Dina over on her Gardens & Wildlife blog very kindly gave me a Liebster award last week. As usual with any such awards given to me I’ll happily answer the questions but won’t be nominating anyone else.
Here are her questions and my replies.
1. What is the worst injury you have sustained whilst plotting? Thankfully I’ve been lucky so far having only received a few minor blisters, bruises and cuts.
2. How would you deal with wet, slushy leaves fermenting on the lawn that refuse to be raked up? I would probably go round picking them up, and bag them up for leaf mould. I don’t really like lawns and this is another reason why not.
3. Have you ever had an invasion of bamboo trying to colonise your plot? It’s not something that’s generally grown on allotments so thankfully no.
4. Do you have any irrational fears/terrors re an animal or insect? There are plenty that I’m not keen on but it’s snakes that really give me the heebie-jeebies, but I’ve no idea why.
5. Have you ever danced barefoot in the rain or hugged a tree? Don’t tell anyone but I’ve certainly hugged a tree or two. I think that as a tree follower it’s obligatory!
6.Do you believe that the moon can influence the growth of plants? I’m not sure, but I have read a book about it and know it’s something some gardeners believe in and practice.
7. Do you have a favourite flower legend/story/superstition? None come to mind.
8. Have you ever used a plant medicinally? Only dock leaves on nettle stings.
9. Which is the more important to you? Both, but the plot is probably more important for the soul.
10. Do you constantly talk/complain about the weather to anyone who will listen? I’m British and a gardener so what do you think!
11. What is the most you have spent on a plant over the past year? I don’t think that I’ve bought any, but a few of the seeds I bought were over £3 a packet.
Elaine over on Rosebank Ramblings also answered these questions, as did Nikki who did so in her comment on Dina’s post as linked above.
It’s always interesting to read the answers to such questions as we find usually find out a bit more about our blog friends.
I never cease to be surprised and delighted that Glo (Porcelain Rose) does an award for each Plot A to Z post that I’ve done, all of which are shown on this page. In last Thursday’s post I mentioned that I’d like to grow pineapples and she has done this wonderful Flighty’s Pineapple Pipe Dream Award picture and poem!
Glo has also done this PPD Award post on her own blog all about it.
Have a good week!
