I was part of a three man team that cooked dinner for 70 (Dougie and Angelo made up the three) on Saturday.
It was late.
But, then I had to be part of a 50 ‘man’ team that was tasked with planting 1,500 plants in SQ on Sunday morning,
Except it pouredwith rain.
So…mainly most of the 50 expected turn outs didn’t turn up.
So we just got our fingers out and got wet.
Not a laugh.

We’ve all been busy at Suntrap getting ready for the annual open day next Sunday. If you’d like to visit it’s on between 10.30 am and 4.30 pm.
There will be demonstrations on how to plant up hanging baskets and containers. Of course, if you can’t be bothered with the hassle of doing it yourself you could simply buy one. There’s also a demonstration from the Scottish Bonsai Association who house their collection of bonsai’s at Suntrap.
You might simply just fancy a stroll through the grounds looking at the beautiful plants and statues.
Or have a wee seat with a cup of tea and some home baking and watch the world go by. Whatever, we’d love to see you there. If you would like more information have a look at the blog.

Jeana works at Suntrap Garden near Ratho.
So, I’d like to suggest that you make a date in your diary for a trip out for its Open Day on 25th May, 10.30 am – 4.30 pm. If the weather stays like it is just now it’ll be a fantastic day out in a beautiful spot with money going to charity.
Here’s the link.
These shots were taken last year at the Open day.

Some people might think we know that spring has sprung because the snowdrops are flowering,
Daffodils are beginning to pop their heads out of the ground and flower,
But I think it’s when you can get your washing back out on the line in the garden.
And, as my father-in-law, Peter Gorman, used to say “There’s nothing better than watching your washing blowing in God’s good wind.”.
