Bits n' Bob 2011

Another selection of snaps from our garden that never made it to my wee bloglet earlier in the year.


 Yellow Poppies ... Grrr ... as pretty as these look, I do regret BIG TIME ever scattering these seeds around the garden. Don't be fooled by the delicate, yellow, tissue-paper appearance ... NO ... they have roots to Australia and come up EVERYWHERE ... Grrr (again)

 
... and relax ... now these are stunning, burnt orange-red day lilies. Still a fairly new plant and quite small but hoping for big things from this baby in the future ...

Hellebore

Polyanthus, these are flowering again now ...

Randoms ...

It's a funny ol' time of year, with gardens closing down for Winter, but for me there's still huge excitement and enjoyment to be found (easily pleased). I'm a bit of a 'tidy-freak' so any opportunity to clear leaves (or a leaf ... I'm a proper 'neat-freak), then I'm outside with my industrial-sized broom sweeping the street.

Here are a few random snaps of blooms from our garden this year that didn't get an 'airing' ...
 
Geum

Aricula


Polyanthus

Knautia

Romantic Ol' Fool

 
My husband has always been incredibly romantic.
I recall, with affection, his rather 'drunk-sounding' proposal to me over the phone whilst on a boring training course years ago. The romance didn't end there ... NO ... there were more outpourings of love to follow. The finishing touch to his proposal was to put an engagement ring in the airing-cupboard for me to see when putting away the laundry.
His fiery passion continues all these years on ... only the other day he returned from a shopping trip with a "Cooey, I'm home ... I have flowers for you"
And there they were ... a pot of Curly Parsley ...

...  a pot of scented Basil...
Overcome with emotion, a lump in my throat, a tear in my eye, I was about to blub ...

... then these appeared.
Romantic ol' fool.
