You have many beautiful pictures of this garden, but here it is again, I see these plants so far north of the equator! I know the Gulf Stream makes northern Europe much milder, but it still surprise me HOW MUCH!
As long as it is only the plants that survive and not the insects I'm happy! :-)). Lesley
I hear ya' Lesley. I used to live along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and we used to ask new residents if they had any roaches in their house.
They would adamantly deny having any and we would snicker to ourselves, knowing full well that EVERYONE had roaches. The small ones were the size of a large man's big toe. The big ones, well, let's just say, they couldn't fly, but they could jump from a high point and glide an awfully long way. Oh, and walking in the driveway after dark, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, you get the idea.
Where I live now, we have a lot of spiders. Hate those fracken webs, but, not very many "bugs" around here. I'll deal with those fracken webs, they are itchy as hell sometime though!
Take care my dear, Donny
Well I won't be coming to visit you Donny :-((
I'll take this lovely Miscanthus at The Dingle as well Lesly! The thought of Donny's spiders and roaches is ... making me shiver :)))
I don't believe that for a minute Lesley, millions of people flock here every year, year round! I mean, come on, the HOME of Mickey Mouse! This place is so popular the QM1 is docked here. Some people come to see her as well! What, you don't have spiders where you live? I don't think so.
Trust me, most people who come here don't want to leave, hence the population density and high cost of living. I'm just trying to get back to Denver myself, get away from all these people.
Donny forget Mickey Mouse, (saw him in Florida), saw the QM1 in Liverpool, and everything else, if you have spiders ) No way :-))) I wouldn't come for 56 million pounds. Lesley
Hi Amelia, They just don't understand it do they? Peter thor☼odin™, sent me an unexpected link to some the other night and the shock nearly killed me! I couldn't breathe for 10 mins. and I hardly slept that night as they arrived just at bedtime. To click on a link and then have an enormous Tarantula in your face. OMG.
Have a lovely day, Lesley
Look forward to those images. :-)))
I remember, some years ago now, there was a huge house spider on the ceiling of the bedroom. I moved the bed several times, and eventually got up, and took the duvet into the living room, where I finally managed to get a wink of sleep :)))
I don't understand the phobia really. My Dad, a very keen gardener, used to pick them up and pop them into his greenhouse, as did my Mum! When I see a spider indoors, my hand goes to my neck instantaneously, and I shudder ~~~~
I'm OK with garden spiders though :)))
Let's change subject then :))) what a nice grassy shot Lesley from a lovely park. Sorry you didn't get to see the kittens ;)... Best wishes, Peter
Dear Peter as I have finally recovered, and no longer dislike you immensely I will forgive you :-))). You are quite nice really :-))) Kindest regards, Lesley
