When the sun is shining and the sky is blue there is only one place you will find me.....in the garden. I have always had a great love for plants 😊

Foliage very pale and pot needs moving but surgery tomorrow on my back so it’ll have to wait. Perfume is still beautiful though.

@cyndi @Jasonsparkes1 Thank you both, me too. I’ll hopefully be equal on both sides and have more mobility. Crutches for 6-8wks then physio. My Mum is bringing me home so I’ll see if she can move it with my Son. ☺️🙏🏼

@linfoster @sharonhayden @richard.spicer.7906 Thank you 🙏🏼 all, fingers crossed 🤞🏼 all goes ok. I’ve had the right side done so I know what to expect. 6-8 weeks on crutches and on one leg. Such fun. 😆 But yes the best time of year to have it done. Hopefully I might get out in the garden at some point, if I’m good. 😁

@sharonhayden It’s my Si joints. When I was pregnant with my 2 children everything softened up for birth but my joints didn’t go back properly. I’ve got arthritis in my spine and 2 bulges as well. It’s been a nightmare.

@clustyroen it’s ok Hun thank you 🙏🏼 for thinking of me now though. I’m still not great with my back and now my knee is going but my mood is so much brighter and after not going in the garden last year I’m actually wanting to now. I’m making the most of it. Doing little bits here and there. I’ve just potted up about 100 plug plants so the garden will be full of colour this year. 😁👍🏼🙏🏼😘💋💞

@clustyroen Thank you Hun I’ll try and pace myself. It’s difficult though as I get going and lose track of time. Now chilling and watching a film 🎥 so I can relax. Have a good weekend?! 😘💋🙏🏼💞

A real close up of a Daphne blossom I think they look like the texture of prawn crackers close up lolz The perfume is definitely NOT fishy but very beautiful. 😊🙏🏼

@harebell yes it’s stunning. I have a problem with the leaves dropping off though. New ones are regrowing but I don’t know if they need to be in special compost or conditions. 🤔

I can’t say I’ve noticed a vast leaf fall,but some have gone a little brown around the edges,🤔 I don’t think they like a lot of water or too much sun though,I’ve planted mine in just normal garden soil in semi-shade and it seems to have taken well producing plenty of flowers 🌸🌸🌸
