Hi @kez001uk This is a sunflower, too? I really like it. How about making a trade with my giant sunflower seeds? Mine looked like a huge pancake. If you have seeds from this or something similar, please let me know.😀🌻
@natii thanks Natalie ☺️ they’re really lovely and different 😛 and thank you for your kind words. He got ill so suddenly and wasn’t kind to let him keep struggling to get well again. His bowel paralysed and never recovered so after a week of trying to get him better he started to struggle and couldn’t let him go through that. Would have been cruel and as much as I miss him it was the best thing to do 🖤
Oh no.. that's heartbreaking 💔 I can imagine how hard this decision was for you. But, as you said, it was the right thing, he's not feeling pain anymore. Although doing the right thing can hurt so bad. I know there is nothing I can say to make you feel any better, but I just want you to know that I feel your pain. ❤️
@natii your words are so kind, thank you, really does mean a lot ☺️ I never had pets as a kid so not something I’m used to. It was the kindest thing to do but because he was my first one it’s a little harder. And he was the sweetest little cuddly thing too. The other 3 aren’t interested in anything but food 🤣🤣🤣
I'm sure they love you although they're not so good in expressing it 😂 I can totally relate. When I was a kid we had two dogs and three cats. I loved them all, but especially my dog. I found her abandoned as a puppy and she was my everything. But then we moved from Uruguay to Germany and couldn't take them with us. It was the hardest thing to leave her and my biggest fear that she could've thought that I didn't want her anymore, 'cause she just didn't understand what's happening. So I..
@natii must have been awful to leave her, especially as you were young 😞 but you gave her a great life when you lived in Uruguay and I’m sure she wouldn’t have thought you didn’t want her. You wanted her when nobody else did 💕 it truly is awful and I never understood how people got so upset over pets until I lost one. It’s heartbreaking. But at least we can be happy knowing we did our best to give them a great life ❤️
Such a nice thing of you to say, thank you 😊 Yes, I think what you described is the best way to deal with it. Although 9-year-old me needed much more time to understand and accept that, but finally came to the same conclusion 🤣 Treasure the memories, all those happy little moments we shared with them ❤️
@natii at 9 years old it can’t have been easy to understand but you grow to realise the good you put into the world is much more important than the few things you feel bad about 😊 we can be grateful we got to share the time we did with our little furry buddies ❤️
@gjones thankfully they’re still in bloom because apart from fuchsias and primroses there’s little left but foliage now 😟 the awful winds we had destroyed most flowers and now it’s suddenly got very cold. Was on the news today that UK is supposed to get 4 months of snow 😔
They really are cute flowers! Makes me want to touch them😊 The weather forecast- oh no, not there too! That will be horrible for you as you're not used to the snow and cold. Kerry I think most of your plants are in pots. What do you do with them in the winter months?
@gjones they do feel as fluffy as they look 😋 it’s going to be terrible if the snow comes for that long 😞 the whole country grinds to a halt if it snows for a day or 2 so I daren’t think how bad it’ll affect us 😂 all of my plants are in pots so the ones that aren’t fully hardy I’ll put in the greenhouse and I’ll fleece others that might need it. A fair few made it through the awful weather we had early in the year so hoping they should be strong enough to survive most temperatures now 🤞🏻
@kamaki they usually do 😊 this one is called “sun king”, think it’s the same as the teddy bear variety. They just seem to be all petals. Most giants are the traditional brown cantered ones. Think there’s only a few like this ☺️
