All sprouting, not planted :o(
I hang my head in shame...
But, I'm pleased to say that FINALLY they're all tucked up in warm, moist soil in the garden, ready to pop through and make a glorious display - though it'll probably be in June LOL!
(It's been such a wonderful warm, sunny day that I could not put off the planting any longer.)
I purchased two large RED Amaryllis flower bulbs before Christmas, and I DID plant them up ;o) but I'm sorely disappointed with them as glorious as they may be.............
They are WHITE!
There's just no pleasing some folk is there?
I found a few things this week too :o)
A lovely Wedgwood pot, 4" high and 5" diameter, in perfect condition at the perfect price of £3. I was amazed at this as they're normally much more expensive.
A perfect Masons Mandalay pattern clock, standing 6" tall. (I've just realised that the face was sightly off centre, now remedied.)
This has been in our 'expensive' charity shop for over a week, and each time I picked it up I looked at the tag and put it down again. Then, on Friday I went in again thinking if it's still there I'm going to buy it - and there it was. I feel I must have had a blow to the head as I payed £25 for it. Still probably quite cheap, but much more than I usually splash out! I realise must have a 'thing' for clocks, from where I sit I can clearly view eight of them.....
I also love books, no Kindle in this house I like the real thing I'm afraid. Here's a brilliant one I found a few weeks ago and forgot to post.
A large, fascinating country book containing recipes, remedies, information on livestock, gardening, sewing, spinning, cats, dogs, beekeeping and much, much more. £2
I'd love to keep bees, but as hubby has an extreme allergy to stings it's just not going to happen, still I can dream :o)
National Trust Fruit & vegetable cookery, lots of olde lore too £1
The cover says it all, looking forward to reading it. £1.
And Finally folks....
Yards of voile for £2.50. I already have this against my bathroom window and I love it, but it's so old that the gold pattern is fading badly - now I can replace it :o)
Hope you've had fun reading my dirty secret ;o)
Thank you to all those who read my last post and removed the dreaded Word Verification from their comments :o)
Have a great week, best wishes to all.
