Wednesday was such a lovely day that I suggested to my mother that we go to Stodels for breakfast, just so that I could be outside in the sun for a while. We had a lovely breakfast and it was great sitting with the sun warming up my back! Afterwards we went for a walk to look at the plants as I had a while before having to pick Robyn up from school.
The people that work there was busy putting out plants at very special prices and we were the first to have a look. I bought this stunning Red Robin shrub as the red leaves attracted me and obviously with a name like Robin, who could resist! The plant was marked down from R180 to R20 - a real bargain! My mom stays in a complex and she also bought one to plant there.
After we got back to my mothers house we looked the shrub up in her gardening books and discovered that the new leaves are red and then turn green as they mature. They also have small little white flowers in spring. To gorgeous!
I also bought some other plants, but I think this one is the most interesting. The garden is coming on since I decided to "take it over" at the beginning of the year. I did a LO so it will be nice to compare it this time next year.
I am going to visit my friend in Monte Vista today, and tomorrow we are going to a 60's 70's dress up party. Watch this space for some funny pics!
