I did some gardening stuff today, but felt too tired to do an all day one.I potted up the self seeded petunias? from the stones.
I watered the pots, trimmed dead flowers off.Collected seeds from sunflower seed heads both little leo and the full sized ones.
I took some photos today.I love the golden fly on the fence, and a wasp on the Abysinnian gladiolus.The garden does not look too bad really.The colours are faded, and the blooms rough around the edges but it still calms me.
The cats observed me throughout the day, they dont wander too far.
I collected more Dandelions and spent an hour getting the petals for the dandelion wine.I just have a teriffic urge to make some.To feel a link to the past, quite distant past too as my previous post said.
I will do a post if it goes well, my recipe.I said there were loads of recipes.I wish my Nan was still alive so she could have given me her recipe for dandelion wine.I hope she is watching down with Grandad observing my life, and smiling.
The oral tradition is strong in gardening for practise, and tips.People continue the stuff their parents and grandparents have done.
I hope my Dandelion wine turns out okay, having never contemplated it untill this year after finding a link for making it.
The idea has germinated untill i photographed my gardens flowers and looked up the history of the flower.Then i found how people made it...
