Oooh how exciting! I love parcels! But I have never received anything live in one! Unless you count the fruitcakes Dad used to send to me when I was far away at University. Or the basket of kitten one boyfriend once 'made up' with :-)I thought Pippa was a hen too at first.
PS The garden looks FAB! I want to come and sit in it!
A kitten in a basket is shameless! Did it work? It's interesting that several people thought P's tail looked hen-like; it suggests my pictures seem darker than they do to me. I normally edit them at night with the room-light on, ironically because my screen is quite dark and I don't want to lighten them too much! I'll do them in daylight in future.
That's a mighty big parcel. And what a lovely view from the study.
If I look through the cardboard I believe I see a number of small pots with fresh young plants, carefully nestled in newspaper wrapping... or is it excelsior? Cheers,
The view from your study window is beautiful! Great blog!
Hi, Just ben listening to an article on radio 4, an Orchard is defined as 5 or more apple trees (including any in pots) so congratulations! Your view is lovely, the garden looks great.
Emily I hope you get a small little box soon from Jackson, Mississippi :). You view is wonderful. Your garden is fab! Can't wait to see whats in that box!!!
Love the photo from your study. Lucky you to have received a lovely parcel of plants I sent some to a friend 3 weeks ago and they never got there you reminded me I must send in a claim at least for the £8 cost of postage and perhaps a little for the lost plants also.
What a lovely view from your study window, Emily. Your garden is looking great now - all your hard work is really paying off.
Alice is quite right, even down to the newspaper!The problem with a nice view is I spend far too long looking at it (when I'm not out happily making it nicer)Joanne - make sure you don't let the dealine pass.And I'm very excited about Bilbo ;)
Nice view! You should start a meme of our study/home office views.
Hello Daffodil - I try to stay clear of memes, but a few are irresistible - you're on!
*panice - no. I don't really do memes, all the links and so on are a bit much for me when I'm in a hurry. Great idea though, I suggest you do it youself!
Your garden is very, very pretty. How is Pippa in it? I mean, does she behave?Also, are you pagan? You mentioned being interested in it on my blog. I ask because I was in a coven for about a year, but now am only agnostic.
Thank you! It has a high point around apple-blossom time. Pippa is... well, it depends on what standards you have! She doesn't dig or bark. She does love chewing sticks and likes to find them for herself... eg canes! And she does wander through flowerbeds sometimes but she has very light paws somehow - she rarely breaks things. We looked after a labrador for a day and the difference was stunning! I wrote a blog about my beliefs a while ago - it's here. I'd say I'm an eclectic, mainly pagan but influenced by lots of things! I did try a coven - for about 6 months. I loved the rituals but I didn't really feel I belonged, even though the people in it were kind.
