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!!! 🙂
