... In the Garden... Part 1





 Thanks for dropping by.......

I spent a lot of time in the garden in the last week... that always lifts my spirits.....


I needed to use the pot that I had some young trees/sapling/seedling growing in ... I was growing these for Bonsais.... so I potted them  up into bonsai pots..... hope they settle in properly......

                                                                ..a Maple.....

...have no idea what this is called......
.... Mulberry trees.....
 
 
...                                               ........ Privet trees ...........




Hubby found this large Umbrella tree growing on his shed roof when he went up to clean all the leaves off it..... he has now potted it in the pot the bonsais-in-training were..... this is why I had to pot out my babies...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
..... see you lovely people soon with part 2...

...revolving door blogging....

... Hello...

I've been taking 'another' little break ... but I'm back again....







I have been a bit 'down'  lately...





I suffer from Anxiety, Depression and PTSD ..... and am sometimes overwhelmed by 'Life' in general and find it hard to put my thoughts in order......





... Then I'm fine and I come back to blogging again..... like a revolving door ...




I just thought it was about time I explained my little disappearances  are not because I lose interest ... ..




...thanks for being patient with me and sticking with me all this time.....
 I'm going to be around for a long time ...and I'll try to be more consistent with my posts........




. ...and to reassure you that everything is fine here... this is the gorgeous jacket  my Hubby bought me for Valentines Day... even though we normally don't celebrate it ...

... God Bless....
Hugs.... Barb  xxx

                                    ...........Isn't  Mother Nature wonderful...............




         ....  here's Nature's clean-up squad hard at work... amazing how everything works together......




   ..........Hubby made this great board for Mum and I to play Yahtzee on ... and we can take it out the front and play in the afternoon sunshine...  we love it.....

Have a good week everybody.....
