Saturday, what a day!

Saturday started off with a surprise visit from my mum, she popped down for lunch and ended up staying for the afternoon, was really good to spend some quality time with her and so soon after Christmas too.

We ended having Subway for lunch plus Gloria Jeans cappuccino as well, very nice!
Then we spent some time talking with the kids and we were picking her brain in regards to the couple hydrangeas we had brought and next thing I know, she and the kids were off driving to Bunnings to have a look at some bigger pots (31 - 34 cm pots) plus saucers and some petunias to plant around them as well,mom and more potting mix.

Toni called me on vid so I was able to "see" and have my opinions as well, that was really good, actually we also got two hanging pots of purple & white petunias, oooh so pretty!

I said to mum if she had time did she want to stay and help pot them and yep, thats what we all did. Put the round table out front patio and I was able to sit out there and help well, watch anyway as we ended up potting the two new bigger pots plus the two smaller pots I had already brought but were too small for the hydrangeas so we just put mixed colours petunias in there on their own.  Plus we hung hooks up on our roof / gutter thing and hung the hanging pots too.

Success :). Looks beautiful, now though we have to get stuck into the rest of the front garden then we will look at putting a veggie garden out back, Michael really wants to do that too so that is good for me.

Was so nice to sit outside in the fresh air, wasn't too hot, nice cool breeze, felt really good.

Unfortunately I'm suffering tonight, not exactly sure why, just feel really "off" and sick in stomach, strange.

Anyway, was definitely fantastic having mum here and helping and she says she loves this part of  gardening where you repot plants etc, so I've booked her for next time :). Oh she already does all our rose & gardenia pruning, so she'll do these new ones as well when they come due.

Love you mum, and thank you so much!

I'll try and add some pics to the post too, am writing this via blogger app on iPad so not sure how this will work, wish me luck!
