We popped out to the garden centre to get some new secateurs, owing to the fact that the best pair  appeared to have vanished into thin air!! We are both of course in the clear! So they must have taken themselves off into the wide blue yonder to prune and cut alone!!!

We finally gave up waiting for them to return and went to buy another set , which of course means we will discover them sometime this week where  he? she? left them.

Of course we were only going to buy the one item , no plants! we did not need any more plants! We have no space for any more plants!……we came home with three! Which for us is a small miracle ..only three.!!

One was a Rose that the DH wanted , by David Austin called Wollerton Old Hall a lovely climbing rose with a strong fragrance, we have around 70 plus roses in the garden most by David Austin, their roses are so beautiful and very hard to resist ! As you can see! the second plant was a white phlox, we love  phlox and think they are lovely plants and the third was a new Delphinium called Coral Sunset.

Paige was very interested in the new colour Delphinium……..

She pulls the bent stem back so she can sniff the flower.

” It does not have a scent!” states Paige disappointed
” But it’s a very lovely flower and a beautiful colour ” says Mum ” just like your new
smock and shorts set by Sarah”

“Well ” says Paige climbing down off the flower pot ” Where are you going to put it? ”
” That’s a very good question Paige !” sighs Mum……
