Easter quota..

purple haze….Yellow bud


Well, Easter has left us behind once more, the holiday for people over and thoughts of normal routine return. Though here in England a couple of holidays in May are something to look forward to!

I like to collect the odd quote from my family as sometimes things get said which are really really funny/daft/unusual/zany and everything else which is odd!! So this Easter weekend I picked up on a cracker my daughter Bryony said to me….so there we were the both of us, sitting on a bench in her garden, enjoying a really sundrenched few minutes together in total peace and tranquility when she suddenly looked over her shoulder and exclaimed, “Oh, my hebe`s gibbering!”  At which point I nearly fell on the floor as I had no understanding of this exclamation! So after politely asking for a, you know, polite explanation of this seemingly-to-me new form of swearing was told that the hebe was having a rough time and looked like it needed some tlc. Now at that moment in time I had no idea what a hebe was, what it did, or anything!! Now I know its a plant and that it encompasses approx. 90 species according to Wikipaedia, so I truly learned something from this bizarre conversation! Oh well, gardening and me? Not really the greatest of friends! My daughters garden? Beautiful!!!  🙂

    I am so glad you had a lovely time…and that quote…well, a new one for your family quote archives…lolol. I can only imagine your expression…lolol…too bad nobody had a camera handy.

    I am sure her garden is lovely and beautiful, judging from the photos.

    Hi Charles that is quite the expression a new one to me. Your pictures have Vi just drooling. She so very much enjoys her flowers and just can’t wait to get out side to her garden. Her in Canada, while the weather is much nicer, her flowers will still have to wait a month or so.
    Glad you enjoyed your visit

    Thanks Bill, yes, I always enjoy visiting my daughter and Marcus at their home and am so very proud of them both for what they have achieved in the last year.
    Hope you are keeping well yourself, you`ll soon both be your own garden no doubt!
