What’s prettier than a red tulip?

Wordless Wednesday

A closeup of a gorgeous red tulip that was growing in my front boulevard garden bed.

Only a few tulips came up in that area, one at a time. The first tulip was the first tulip of the season in my garden, but just as it opened someone came along and picked it. Luckily I haven’t noticed that anyone has picked any of my other flowers.

There’s still a few tulips blooming but we’re starting into some hot weather so I’m sure they’ll be gone in a day or so.

Remortgage Guild can help if you have credit problems

Those who live in the UK are probably familiar with the term “remortgage”. Hopefully none of you are intimately familiar with that term, as it’s often used when someone needs help with refinancing.

If you do live in the UK and have been looking for some remortgage assistance you might be pleased to know that the Remortgage Guild specializes in assisting those with credit problems and help them get a mortgage. It’s true, remortgages are possible with bad credit. Even if you’ve filed for bankruptcy, are in debt, or have County Court judgments against you the Remortgage Guild will assist you.

Just visit the Remortgage Guild website and they’ll put you in touch with someone that can give you advice, and also help you get a quote on a brand new mortgage. They do not do credit checks either. Just contact them to get some free advice with absolutely no obligation.

Getting a remortage might allow you to switch mortgage lenders and save money on your monthly payments or might allow you to have the extra money you need to achieve your goals. Visit the site and find out how the Remortgage Guild can help you.

I’m neglecting my garden

The last time I was in the garden doing any work was more than a week ago. I tidied up the front garden beds and really meant to get to the backyard to finish the half that I had left to trim, prune and fix up, but I just haven’t got back there to do it.

Last weekend, not this one, last weekend we even went to a garden center and I bought some Tomato plants, cucumbers and a lot of other veggies as well as a few annuals to plant. Have I do anything with them other than water them three times? Nope!

I’ve just not been feeling well enough to get out there and get the work done.

It’s a shame really. The plants are surviving without me, but I know if I got out there and trimmed the dead wood off the rose, and pruned them into shape it would help stimulate them and make then grow a whole lot more. Also … I’d rather work with them now to shape them before they grow too much as it will be harder job and uh … more dangerous to my skin as they get bigger and fuller.

since I have more than 60 roses it’s quite interesting to take a look at my hands and arms after I’ve been working with them. I wear gloves but the thorns sometimes punch right through the gloves. I’ll come in after an hour or two of pruning and I’ll have scratches from the roses all the way up to my shoulders, or well … pretty close!

Is gardening a dangerous activity in your yard too?
