    • Dear Rochelle,
      They’re intended as a happy/lovely diversion, so I’m glad they work 🙂 For the last few weeks, I’ve posted them on a Monday morning for you, but not until the afternoon in the UK, so the Brits must think that I don’t own a clock!
      All best wishes,
      Sarah

  2. I roll out of bed Monday morning, shower, turn on the computer,and there is Sarah waiting for me. Yes, buying plants, putting them in the ground, and watching them all summer is a simple but exquisite pleasure. Now all we need here is for the rain to stop and the ground to warm up a bit. 🙂 Happy Monday dear friend.

    • Most Monday’s I have a haiku waiting for you, but just occasionally I let you down. On the plus side, I usually manage to make up for it with two haiku the next Monday. I just love my annual plant shop — especially as I don’t have to pay for it! I’ve learned that tuberous begonias and geraniums are not on the menus of snails and slugs. I’m risking it a bit with the petunias, but will put them in pots on the table next to my bench, which is just outside the kitchen door so I can keep an eye out for any slimy marauders. That taller plant in the picture, which will grow into a fairly large shrub, is called a New Zealand Bottle Brush. I fell in love with one that was in full bloom at the garden centre, but Mister said there was no point in buying it as the flowers would be over soon. Then I found one that hadn’t come into flower yet, so his argument no longer stood. Give me plant shopping over clothes shopping any day. It’s raining here today, and will do so all week according to the forecast, so I’m frustrated at not being able to re-pot the rest of my plants after a good start yesterday in brilliant sunshine. Happy Monday to you, too, my dear friend 🙂

  4. Don’t have to pay for them! Bonus!
    I love this time of year and will be (if I can get my butt into gear) going out to get some bee-loving flowers for my entourage…

  6. So true – I love seeing them all in a row like that too, waiting to bloom and grow.

    • Today it’s very hot and sunny on the SE coast of the UK, so I’m off outside to re-pot all those little beauties. I’m sure their roots will be celebrating their liberation from cramped quarters!
