Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Let’s forget what is happening in the big wide world, just for a few moments. When wandering in the little woodland this morning, I realised that most of the narcissus were rapidly going over, but the one that was standing out was Narcissus St. Patrick’s Day, so let’s celebrate, he is on time for once!

I felt a lot happier after seeing the lovely flowers in the woodland. I can see that I will be doing a lot more gardening than usual as I am well over 75 and will have to self isolate. As all my groups have been cancelled for the forseable future, weeds be warned, I will have time to tackle you all!

Stay safe and well all of you and may we all enjoy our gardens. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    I am also self isolating, Pauline, so your lovely photos are really refreshing.

    Take care.

      Hello Rosemarie, lovely to hear from you!The garden will keep me going while I’m on my own, the children can’t travel to see me so will probably resurect Skype! Not looking forward to months spent on my own, but will cope somehow.Thank goodness for lovely flowers!

    Lovely daffodils Pauline. Here in Sweden we are also self isolating so I look forward to having some more garden updates from you to help while away the time!

    • Pauline says:

      Thank you Denise, they certainly cheered me up! Have done 3 sessions of gardening so far today, I can see me doing far more than usual as long as it stays dry.

    We too are self-isolating; better safe than sorry. It seems visiting other people’s gardens via the internet will be the norm for a while. I enjoyed your daffodils. My son picked mine and they are sitting across the room from me where I can enjoy them constantly.

    • Pauline says:

      What a good idea to have brought your daffodils indoors so that you can enjoy them Jeannie, I can see most of mine from the house so that is nearly as good! All the organisations that I belong to have cancelled meetings etc, so gardening will be even more important for me from now on.

    I love your warning to the weeds, Pauline! Made me chuckle. I went to Homebase yesterday and saw that all the seed displays were empty and people were taking laden trolleys of plants to their cars so I think many gardens will look rather smart this summer! Your daffs are so cheerful, such a lovely display – and, in a strange way, good timing that this virus is happening in spring when all is positive rather than at the beginning of winter – at least we’ll be able to entertain ourselves outdoors. Stay safe and well. x

      I made a start on my war on the weeds today Caro, but it was rather cold in the east wind!It’s good to think that people will be seed sowing in all their free time and planting new plants to freshen up their gardens. I feel so much better when I can get out into the fresh air and hope to be doing a lot more of it now, as long as the rain stays away for a bit! I hope you saty virus free and are able to enjoy your gardening.

    How lovely that the daffs were on time for once! I think everyone with a garden may win the weed battle this year. Take good care of you.xxx

      There’s not been many years when he has been early Dina, this made a nice change! None of us will have any excuse this year of not having enough time for weeding, I know that everything that I nornally do, has been cancelled, so I have no excuse.
      Stay safe and well Dina, along with your family. x
