Getting the year started off right…

My family and friends are helping me get the new gardening year started off right! Take a look at some of the wonderful gifts I’ve recently received….

HOG WASH: “Perfect Scrub for Mechanics, Gardeners and Kids”
That just about covers my garden experiences!

ROSE JAM SHOWER GEL: “Sweet, tart and wonderfully fresh, this indulgent blend of rose, vanilla and lemon leaves you smelling of a rose garden and nourishing argan oil gets skin gorgeously soft.” Don’t you love the sound of that?

HELPING HANDS HAND CREAM: “A nurturing almond, cocoa butter and chamomile hand cream to give back what life has taken out.” Sounds good enough to eat.

GIFT CERTIFICATES FOR 2 DAVID AUSTIN ROSES: The Generous Gardener and The Ingenious Mr. Fairchild. I am over the moon about these.

BARNEL PRUNERS: Wendy Tilley highly recommends.

BIONIC ROSE GLOVES: Recommended by Chris VanCleave and Wendy Tilly

CLASSIC HAND TOOL SET: from Flexrake …. beautiful!

ROBERTS DISTILLATA ALLE: A rose tonic that the Florentine women of 1867 just wouldn’t be without— need I say more!

  1. It certainly looks like someone had a Merry Christmas! I’m hoping for spring so that you can get outside and play with your new toys.

  2. those things are really going to enhance your gardening, are you thinking of ideas in your head now? I know I have been mulling over a bunch of ideas i want to try in the spring. already have a list of materials I will need, lol, basically know the cost too, trying to figure out for a small rose bed do i want to square it off, round it off or layer it? it willbe 12 feet long by 6 feet wide. have some other plans as well. are you planning on moving plants or creating a new look? hope you take lots of pictures. I know I will be taking pictures and sharing them too. oh yea is spring here yet?

  3. Happy New Year! Everything looks great! Especially the gift certificates for David Austin Roses! This year I have my heart set on ordering some more and I was thinking the Alnwick Rose and Sharifa Asma. Do you have these? If so what has been your experience with them?
