Gone Fishing!!!!

OK, I am really gone gardening. 

I am on holiday for almost 2 weeks at Kilbourne Grove, yay!!! As many of you know, I have no internet there, so I will not be able to post or read any blogs. This will be the longest amount of time I have spent there, I am really looking forward to it, and am hoping to accomplish a couple of projects (depending on Ian’s help, of course, and how often the lawn needs cutting, lol).

my current favourite plant, Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’

Hope to see you all when I return.

    Ooh what a cool Euphorbia. I’ve planted a few specimens and now I’m hooked! Have fun fishing. 🙂

    I am jealous! Enjoy yourself, and most importantly, remember that no day of gardening is complete without a little cheese, some wine, and then some more wine.

    Have a great time Deborah. I too love that euphorbia and I let it seed all over the garden but polychroma is my favourite of those euphorbia plants. If you saw that one I’m sure you would want one too. Let us know if there is any news on whats happening with the plot of ground beside you – I hope they didn’t get planning permisison for the flats.

      Rosie, I love all the euphorbias, especially the polychroma, just bought the ‘Bonfire’ variety. Have not heard anything yet, it is just a bare spot, (I like the look of that, lol).

    Have a wonderful time. I bet by the time you get back, you will be anxiously wanting to know what’s going on in the blogging world. We will still be here… so enjoy.

    How fun is this going to be for you [maybe not Ian, but you know how it is, and at this point of the game, he should too!] Try not to over exert yourself in the first few days, you will want to enjoy all that KG has to offer.
    Love the Euphorbia…… Say, if you ever want a daytrip, you could head down highway 6 towards Fergus and stop in at LittleTree….

      Teza, I can’t crack the whip too much, there might be some rebellion in the ranks. But I am sure that I can get him to do a few things, lol. One day when there is not so much to do, you will be shocked when you look up and there I am.

    Deborah, What a great time of year for a gardening holiday! Enjoy yourself, and we’ll all be looking forward to seeing what you’ve accomplished when you return.

      Jean, we always try to take a week in May and a week in October, the two busiest months (and the months when I seem to have the most energy). The rest of the summer, we kick back a lot more.

    Hi Deborah,

    “Gone gardening” sounds way better to me. I hope you are/were able to completely envelop yourself in the bliss of garden making, shutting out the world’s demands for awhile. There is something very therapeutic and rejuvenating about this, don’t you think?

    Hey Deborah girl !
    I think we could all use some down time from technology ? LOL

    Have a great time up there .. it is roasting here in Kingston with this jump into summer .. love the heat and humidity … NOT !!! LOL

      Joy, much as I love the internet and my blog, it does take a lot of time. During the week it doesn’t matter, I am stuck in Toronto, but the weekends, ah, the weekends, I don’t even want a radio on. Love it!

    Enjoy your computer-free time! I hope your bold announcement will encourage other bloggers to take breaks from their computers and come back refreshed.

      It is always great to have a break and recharge those batteries. Since I do not get to see my garden on a regular basis, I really look forward to it when I can.
