Quilt Scribbles – The Garden

Mum had a real love for gardening. Sadly it is something that I have not inherited. I like a lovely garden, but messing about with soil, bulbs and numerous other things really has no appeal.

When Mum passed away she had 51 ceramic pots all filled with plants. Some had bulbs that had flowered, others were plants that were healthy and there were a few dubious looking plants, those we deposed of and kept the pots. We gave a few to several of Mum’s neighbours who asked for something to remember Mum by and I was very touched by that. The rest of the pots we bought home.

The day we moved the pots was miserable. It was raining and really there was no let up. We just wanted to the job done and the pots relocated, and quickly. We therefore deposited them in our garden in a pretty random fashion just waiting for a nice day to attend to them further.

There were several we really were not sure about, was it a plant that was going to flower? or was it a weed? When in doubt don’t do it, so we (that is a Royal we, as I don’t “do” gardening) tidied the pphoto 3ots up and bought them home. A few weeks have passed and yesterday I noticed that one of the plants that we were not sure about was starting to flower.

We still have no idea of what it is, but it rather compliments our blue iris bulbs that have flowered and I am delighted we didn’t think it was a weed!

I will be back later in the week with hopefully an update about the early medical records and some details about the squares.

Please stay tuned and keep sharing the news about the project.
