There is still a bit of growing going on here.  web-s-016

The rose bush surprised me with a couple of new buds, even though I thought I had seen the last flower last week.

The daisies are still making up for lost time, web-s-008

wgloveI have been using Bionic Gardening Classic Gloves since the beginning of spring.  They are comfy and have sensitivity that rubber gloves just can’t give.  My fingers don’t feel clumsy when I wear them and I can pick up even tiny things easily.  Unlike other leather or cloth gloves, the seams have never caused blisters or even soreness.  I have to say I am impressed with their suppleness and recovery after getting muddy or wet. They are  a must have if your hands get tired and sore while gardening and there isn’t the sweating issue you get with many gardening gloves. The wrist closure supports your wrist and keeps the dirt out as well.   The thing that really surprised me is that they are washable.  I never would have thought that possible of leather gloves,wgloves but it’s true.  They came out of the washer looking a lot closer to new than when they went in, and they didn’t shrink.  After a few bends of the hand, they were comfy again without stiffness and they looked good. They feel more like golf or batting gloves instead of gardening gloves.  I  definitely recommend them to any of you who like to get your hands dirty~without getting your hands dirty.

   There are  different colors too, check them out along with other styles of Bionic Garden Gloves at gardenshoesonline.com or just click on one of the pictures. wwgw-colors

Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made

by singing: — “Oh, how beautiful!” and sitting in the shade. ~Rudyard Kipling

web-todaty-005Went to Frog pond on Saturday with a couple of my friends.  It was great fun.  As soon as we spent most of our cash we headed off to The Green Thumb.  I wanted them to check it out since it was a new place I found to buy plants.   They had some plants there that we hadn’t found at the Frog Pond.  What I really learned that day is that my Jeep can hold alot more flowers than one might think.    I also learned that I can’t get enough flowers to plant.  What gardener can?
