Just a Quickie!!!

I am here!! Mum is here to!! The weather does nothing but rain and we had a frost 2 nights ago!!!!

We have been out to quite a few garden centres and a couple of open gardens in the rain!

I have made quite a few presents, because I have to do something otherwise I would go stir crazy!

Today we are off to another open garden then a very nice coffee place and plant place after!

My husband has found an 8ft by 10ft greenhouse for just £50 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which comes with staging, so guess what, this weekend after moving K out of Uni and returning mum to Cheshire we are going to dismantle it and bring it home. Then that bit of redesigning down the bottom of the garden will have to be dug up and re-designed again!!! Which I'm quite disappointed about because it was all just beginning to take off!
To be honest the greenhouse is probably a bit big, but they always say go for the biggest you can afford, well we won't look a gift horse in the mouth and no doubt we will fit it in somehow, somewhere! We where down the garden last night at about 9pm with the tape measure and at the moment we will be keeping the small one as well, as it has the electrics fitted. So I will have a heated one and a cool one! But thinking about it, the way my tropical plant collection is growing we may have to get electrics fitted into the big one!!!

May not be able to post now till the weekend, take care everyone! xxx

Libby how wonderful to find a greenhouse for just 50 pounds!!! Lucky you! And well done hubby!!!

Hope you'll have a bit of sunshine too, it's nicer when you visit open gardens and it doesn't pour the whole time. ;-)

Enjoy your time with your Mum!!!
