I have been so neglectful of this poor blog I wouldn't be surprised if no one even reads it.
Being tied up with cosmetic renos inside our nest and it has driven me to the brink of reason.
Anyone who has gone through renovations in their nest knows what it can do to a normal sane mind.
But ? do it to a wacky one like mine ?
Pity my poor husband, Garden PA, .. he has put up with hysterics , laughing fits, and general insanity of a woman on the edge.
Have you ever seen the movie "The Money Pit" with Tom Hanks ? remember his laughing fit when the tub fell through the floor ? ... that was me a few times .. truly !!
It is done now (for the most part) ... but then why am I still teetering on the brink of "madness" ?
My gardens have been sorely neglected.
Garden PA will be trying to help me as much as possible to clear back plants,transplant plants, plant bulbs and general clean up.
Bless his heart he picked up 6 big bags of special "sea" compost for me today.
We have two days that seem decent by way of the forecast, IF we can do it.
Please wish us all the luck that the Irish are supposed to have, to get this mission done.
Meanwhile .. I managed to capture a few pretty shots of the flaming Japanese maples that survived the last winter kill and are so beautiful they stun me with their colour.
It also answers the burning question as to why I take my chances with these gorgeous little trees.
The light is not the best but you get the idea of how intense the red is on these leaves.
Crimson Queen's main trunk seems to be dead, but I am not giving up since this undergrowth is pleading with me in a sea of lamium
There is other colour and non colour in the garden too of course
