  1. I can’t believe, u can grow Chinese Lanterns !!!, Sue … so love them … as they keep for ever through winter and beyond … so love ur fairie garden … and all of ur produce and flowers … thank u so much for sharing all this … winter is coming here … getting cold … had a bit of snow a few days ago, which went away again … for now … had a few moist, warm days as well … found many companions glowing in the evening sun in our oasture, so it was easy picking … smiles … Love u, cat.

  2. I love the colour of those Chinese lantern husks. We only get the regular cape gooseberries here, not that glorious orange husked kind. Are they edible? Lovely photos Sue and I pinched some to use as desktops they are that pretty 🙂

  3. Beautiful kaleidoscope of colours there Sue, great to see you even share a corner of your world for the insects.
    I have just planted Wisteria in a pot, hoping to train this climber, very invasive but a beautiful decorative flower and scent.
    Kind regards.

    • Thanks Ian.. so pleased to catch you within the Plot 🙂 Lol.. and Wisteria are lovely.. we had one for year, it was not a success story though. it was in flower when we bought it and it grew very tall in a very large pot we had and we trained it up the side of our house.. But although it looked lovely with all its leaves, it never flowered.. We had to remove it when we had some work done on the patio.. But I have no doubts it will love your home.. I think its all to do with when and how you prune… We failed on that one!! 🙂

  4. You are Amazing!!!! You Write, you garden, you grow flowers…. I write, I used to grow flowers… I used to have a garden… but now with fibro I can no longer do them without a lot of help from my precious hubby. Unfortunately, He loves Golf. ! Need I say more? I do not resent it though. He works hard and needs an outlet he enjoys. I really am jealous of all your veggies. I’ve done quite a bit of canning this summer as for the first time in 4 years I felt like it. Yesterday, I made green pepper jelly to put on cream cheese with crackers, Or to use as a sauce over meat. Yummy!! Happy harvesting!!! Debbie

    • Hi Debbie.. Yes I know what that feels like and for a while as you know I was very poorly with it.. And each person is different.. Today my hands hurt having done a lot with them.. My feet are the worst when I get up, like treading on glass.. Since retirement I have stiffened up a bit, so try to keep active as much as I can.. Learning to pace yourself. and I constantly tell myself I am well, and mostly I am.. 🙂 I turn all my negatives into positives if I can, and continue daily with my Qi Gong, and I still have acupuncture once a month. Been having that now for around 6 yrs and its amazing! .. Its good you have a good understanding Hubby who helps.. I do not know where I would have been without mine several years ago when I had a huge flare up..

      Sending you Lots of Healing Love Debbie and I hope you continue to heal, and that green pepper jelly sounds very very nice..
      Thank you so much for stopping by.. Love to you Sue xx
