Gardening on a small plot with an oak tree in one corner and trying to encourage more wildlife. Love visiting gardens and buying plants too!

Hi folks, hope you're all ok. Life is good here - it's rained 🌧, these Rudbeckia are looking lovely 💛, and after my cochlear implant was switched on I can hear so much more including all the birds in our garden 🐦🐦🐦. Enjoy your day.

Thanks Julie, it's honestly life changing. I can stream calls from my mobile directly to my implant and am using the phone again after 10 years of not using it! Do encourage your other half to find out more about it, find me on Messenger and pm me if you have questions as more than happy to share info on it. 🙂

It certainly is Jane, it's been so lovely to sit and listen to the family of blue tits in our garden 🙂 @pelly

Hi Kari, I know things are tough for you at the moment, so thinking of you. Have sent something to you, don't post it on here when you get it as it's just something I wanted to do privately. No idea when it will arrive, post to family in NZ is taking over 4 weeks! Love and hugs 😘 @KariSamuel

They used to be one of my least favourite plants but having put one in and it has flowered for weeks on end, they have shot up my list. Will be getting more for next autumn.

I think we all change our minds about plants - have to admit yellow isn't my favourite colour but I absolutely love these and wouldn't be without them now 💛 @jendren
