Today was my first foray into the world of Freecycle! Wow!
I put on a wanted add for anyone with any terracotta plant pots etc and within 1 hour I had an offer from someone 5 miles away for loads. Just went up to get them this evening and I am amazed! I have a car full of terracotta pots, porcelain pots, massive ones, medium ones, strawberry planters. Now I love freecycle. Tomorrow I will get them out and give them a good clean (weather permitting) and take some photos.
What a wonderful service, and how nice of people to just give these things away, it is heartwarming.
Another kindness this week was that someone gave me an i-phone. Now I must admit that I was a bit blase about this gift at first, because I am not actually that interested in them, but it was only after the amazement of some of my friends that I realise just what a gift this is and how much it is worth. My friend could probably have got £250 for it if he tried to sell it but he was happy for me to have it. As much as anything, it now means that when I go away I can take it with me and connect to the internet and keep up with all your lovely blogs.
Being at home has been blissfull. I have two days away working this week and then back for the weekend, so no complaints here.
Did I mention that I have booked the man to do my decking and put up my trellis? That will be done in the next few weeks which really excites me. I love my garden more than I can say and getting the structure in will now enable me to get in some of the plants I really want. Meanwhile, my roses are thriving, got lots of buds on one, my apple tree is in rude health and my potatoes peas and onions are all happy as larry. The only thing not that happy are my wonderful tomatoes. They desperately need sun and are looking so sad. I will be heartbroken if they don't perform well because tomatoes are my favourite thing!
Well tomorrow i will try and get some photos going and show what is happening out there and my lovely new pots.
