Later that day I emailed Liz in Kentucky and mentioned that I’d received the card as back in November I’d arranged with Alison to send one of her hand-made journals to her. Liz replied and included this picture of Charley, one of her two dogs, along with the journal.
I also got a different one sent to rose lover Nikki in Southern California which you can see in this post.
Alison’s lovely journals, and more, can be seen in her Etsy shop Mettaville.
Also in the post on Friday were some flower seeds that I had ordered from Chiltern Seeds earlier in the week after having looked through the 2016 catalogue. I’m looking forward to seeing the nigella damasecena Mulberry Rose flowers as I’ve only ever had a handful of pink or rose ones appear among the blue or white flowers.
I looked round the plot last Monday following a wet weekend and wasn’t surprised to find it very soggy, but thankfully not waterlogged like some of the others. I found that plot neighbour John had been doing some tree pruning and he was happy for me to help myself to some logs to add to my stockpile for when I redo the area as I mentioned recently. I’ll be taking another look round this morning then going across the road to the horticultural society trading shed to renew my membership, and check when the onion sets and seed potatoes will be available.
Have a good week!
