Johnstown Thanks

Johnstown Booty

Just a quick thanks to Hazel and her team who organized a truly lovely day for us at Johnstown - and thanks also to Johnstown manager and staff who made us feel so welcome.

You can see in the image, that I got my fill of 'retail therapy', and now have to find mild enough weather to plant us my new treasures which include  Salvia Hot Lips (from Joann), as will as Saracocca ruscifolia and it's new pot. Concealed in the Johnstown bags are some Irish primroses. Sad to say, I got the news that these primroses are currently going out of production, so I hope the ones I got survive as I'm now classing them as 'precious'.

Great meeting you all

Elizabeth

Delighted you had a great time, Elizabeth. Hopefully the weather will improve lots so you can get them all planted.

Lovely to met up with you today! Elizabeth. You will enjoy the scent from the Sarcacocca over the next few months. Johnstown had a nice selection of plants today.

Nice to see you again Eluabeth, and many thanks indeed to Hazel for all her work and her 'little helpers'. I was a lovely relaxed and enjoyable day, renewing friendships and meeting a couple of new friends.

Lovely chatting to you Elizabrth and thanks for the Bergenia Apple Blossom!!

Good that you enjoyed the day. Once more , I failed to make it. However as Mary and Paddy might say: Beidh eile ag an bPaorach.

Lovely to see you again Elizabeth and happy planting.

Thanks to everyone for your comments - yes indeed, the meeting up with friends and making new friends is surely the best part of this event.

Agus a Dick, nil ach smidereen Gaelge agam - miniu dom :

"Beidh eile ag an bPaorach".

There will be something else at the ??? Cad e an "bPaorach"?

Was lovely to see you again, Elizabeth and looking very well. I was glad to see everyone again as I missed last year. Has stirred the longing to get back to gardening.!

It means Power (the name of a person) will have another day. In other words he'll have a second chance! Id say its a Waterford saying as the Powers are very strong down there. Lovely meeting up again Elizabeth. Loved the colour scheme, such a dynamic red!

Gurbh maith agat, a Scrubber.

Wow, is there no end to the advantages of knocking around with you lot - not only has my gardening improved, but I've a chance to use the "cupla focal". Thanks again

Great to meet you again Elizabeth yesterday. It was a great day but gone in a blink! Maybe we will see you at another gathering real soon!
