Firstly, sorry to all who have emailed me about the items I was listing on my shop as announced in the last post. I am so snowed under over here, and am really struggling to get on top of it all. I am going to take a mini break from listing new things and just complete all my current orders and get on top of it all before I put the new things on. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there was something in particular you wanted. I will let you know when they will all be listed so you can look out for them. I have emails to reply to, orders to send out, so many things to wrap and put together and I just need a little longer to do this. And I am spending more time wih my family so there is a little less time to get these things done, I think I am starting to get the balance right. I'm just trying to take control of what I'm doing rather than feeling like its all controlling me. Sound ok? I hope so.
On another thing, I ordered some delicious David Austin roses the other day, I have been wanting one for sooo long, but they are fairly hard to come across in Australia. I ordered them online, love everything about online shopping! I'm so excited to get them. I also ordered some berries, I have been preparing a garden for a few months now to grow my own produce, and berries are a huge favourite of mine. I cannot wait to pick and eat these delicous things from my own yard. When we were little, one of the houses we lived in had the best strawberry patch, it was huge (or it seemed huge to us), and its one of the best memories i have of that house, each morning searching and searching the area for strawberries with my sister in our dressing gowns. It seemed like there was an endless supply, and finding them was just as fun as eating them. I want to provide the same fun for my children, and Ruby already loves gardening and seeing the flowers and fruit on plants she waters. Cant wait!
Raspberries, boysenberries, rhubarb, strawberries, blackberries.... how fun. I will have to try my very best not to kill them, I am a keen, but still learning gardener! Mum and Grandma are wonderful gardeners, so I'm sure I'll get the right advice. Any tips? Bring on summer!
Added: I bought them from here
