Hello Owls and Larks,

Hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and enjoyed all your choc eggsVery Happy

Drove out to see daughters new house yesterday afternoon although she has not got the keys yet, passed a most beautiful church at the end of the lane it was surrounded with pretty spring flowers in a wonderful setting and quite tranquil. Patch and I found the footpath along the side and walked over near the corn fields. Met a lady there who I swear would be a lookalike for Mary Berry.

Off to down pillows soon, if you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams

Camilla's Avatar Son bought me a new mower so I shall be mowing the front lawn later today. No plants yet but I have visions of an old fashioned rose trough to fit near the cottage front windows. Then to prune back the Hebe bush in back garden which I discover by googling it needs to be done in springtime, I may remove the Hebe bush altogether in time and replace with a different bush, roses maybe.

Night night dear owls and larks, sweetest of dreams.

Have a good day.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar What oh what is a (n?) Hebe bush? I have gone through a great many years of life comfortably not knowing and now that I have looked it up in Wikepedia I find images of what look like a dozen different types of plant altogether and none of them looking like what I would describe as a bush. One looks like a Hydrangea - but I wouldn't describe that as a bush either. But Wikepedia does confirm that whatever a Hebe may be, it does need pruning lightly in the spring.

Yes, I must cut my lawn, too, and I meant to do it yesterday but we were plagued and exhausted with the young folk. Beanie has run around all weekend in her Elsa dress from Frozen, which looks remarkably like her Rapunzel dress but in blue and with flashing lights on the front and a button that plays the theme song from Frozen if you let it - so just the thing for a job interview. Theo is for ever robot building and getting quite good. He is a one man Blue Peter Show: what he can't make out of an egg box and some silver paper isn't worth having. He ate four bowls of bran flakes for breakfast yesterday. Nothing else (at least for breakfast).

And now back to work; must take J to the surgery for 10 and then back to the to do list which is overflowing as usual. Ah well, still the sun is shining. Have a good day. Very HappyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar I rather like Hebe bushes, I have a plan (when or if it will ever come to fruition is in the lap of the gods) to replace our now non existent fence with a row of Hebes to help stabilise the slope at the edge of the garden.
There are lots of different types but most only grow to three feet or less and are evergreen with lovely long lasting flower spikes.

Perhaps Mary was visiting someone Camilla? Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Morning Fennie and FN and Everyone.

Not really like a Hydranga bush I wouldn't think Fennie but it is evergreen it was left here in back garden by our previous owners and apart from one tall rose bush ( yet to discover what colour it turns out to be) there too there is not much else a few nasturtiums in the small border which will appear again in late Autumn.

One of my little granddaughters when she visited recently put on a blue dress with flashing lights down the front by just pressing a button the Elsa dress.Very Happy I expect Theo loves Lego and can make lots of things with those too. On the subject of cereal my two little ones must have choc coco pops for breakfast and if they can't have them they cry their heads off.

Have a good day, very windy here in Norfolk a gentle sun but lots of fluffy clouds in the sky.

Camilla's Avatar The Hebe bushes would make a good hedging FN, I lost my blue Coteneaster bush in the last house think it was too shady and did not water enough I was thinking of planting one of them in the back garden here in place of the Hebe but the garden is small and it would be nice to see some lovely scented roses come up instead I think, I miss my roses.

It could have been her sister of Mary Berry FN, she must live there it is very rural with only 10 houses either that or she was visiting.
