Hello everyone, I hope you're all feeling okay.
Thanks for all your thoughts with regard to the insurance carry on, I will tell you I'm not down hearted about it and merely mention it as an observation. I'm sure one day they will finally get everything sorted out. Thankfully we are no longer struggling to make ends meet as the tenant we have in our house is now paying the rent and also we did get one pay out from the insurance.
HORIZON made a comment about getting a new dog, Have you seen the new pups they have at Wiccaweys? Take a look [Here] if you haven't, save one for me though - in fact I may have two... or three ha ha! Also while you're there - assuming you're like me and can't resist a peek - take a look at Mack who I featured in one of my previous posts - by the way did I tell you I want Mack as well!! Anyway if you want to cut to the chase and catch right up with Mack click [Here] Doesn't he look a nice clean hansom boy after his bath?
I know you shouldn't pick a dog on looks but just for fun which one would you go for? I quite like Annie but she would need to like attaching herself to my left as I already have a dog attached to my right. Benny and Joon are lovely too but I would feel bad about splitting them up so you know what that would mean! Then there is daisy, how could you resist daisy? Look at those eyes! How would you choose? I gotta stop lookin at that site lol!
Today I managed to locate a couple of trees that were missing from the main order that I made the other week, I placed the order over the telephone and the guy said they should be with us next week. The trees I ordered today are Cupressus sempervirens Stricta They are very narrow growing conifers, you often see them growing in Italian gardens
I took these pictures for you today as I haven't really shown you what is in flower in the gardens for a while. These are a dwarf Iris which act similar to Crocus in that they die back in time, they are only in evidence for a few months of the year unlike normal Iris which have foliage even when there is no flower to be seen. These are very delicate in appearance and a welcome treat for a grey February day.
