First flowers from our new garden by happypat

First flowers from our new garden

Our daughter Cathy called into our new place yesterday. She had never been round the back into the very overgrown garden before. The previous owner had been a very keen gardener so among the tangle of nettles & brambles lovely shrubs keep appearing. She found this lovely peony & I love peonies so was delighted to have them in the kitchen. So glad she picked them!
In truth it still isn’t our house as the probate still hasn’t gone through so I suppose we are trespassing!

Three good things:
1. We have signed the tenancy agreement for our rental property so we have somewhere to move into at the end of the month.
2. I have cleaned my kitchen drawers out.
3. A cooker cleaner booked!! It’s the cooker hood that needs doing actually, the electric oven is rarely used so it’s not bad.
How wonderful to discover such beauties in your new garden ! and well done Cathy for rescuing them from the weed entanglement and rain !! ha ! They make your kitchen look so bright and cosy ! So there will be quite some work to do to get the garden to its former glory !! exciting to be able to put your own stamp on it whether you have someone in to do the initial work for you ! Things are on the move then Pat - glad you have the tenancy agreement signed for your temporary accommodation ! - nice to have things sorted out one by one -- and Pat -- I could do with your cooker cleaner !! I can not get down on my knees to do it ! Gary has done it in the past for me - perhaps one day again !!!!

I love the cosy homey feeling to this picture. Hope you'll be happy here for a few months. We'll have to come up and say hello when you get settled!

@beryl I had a real struggle to find one that could do it before the end of June Beryl...they must all be flat out, no one is cleaning their own cookers!! He’s going to do the cooker expelair hood, the single oven & there has been some juice spilt on the bottom of the Aga oven which looks messy so he’s going to do that too. £65 so I reckon it’s hard earned money!i wouldn't clean anyone else’s oven for that! We are going to get someone in to sort the garden out...build a shed for the tractor & fill in three round overgrown flower beds in the lawn. The most important job in Harrys eyes!

They’re absolutely gorgeous. I have the same peony in my garden but with just one flower.

It sounds as though you have been busy Pat. your flowers are very pretty
June 12th, 2019  
That’s lovely to have them in your new garden.

They look very pretty, how nice of Cathy to pick them for you.
When we lived in married quarters during our RAF days we had to clean our cookers to the point of them looking brand new. Not a single mark had to be on them or we would get charged.

How beautiful

@phil_howcroft Just moving into the village a mile away Phil. First into a rental house for hopefully only six months while we do our new place up. These flowers are from our soon to be permanent home which unfortunately the sale has been delayed as the lady died mid sale so it’s now in probate!
June 13th, 2019  
@phil_howcroft New permanent house is three quarters of a mile from our old house nearer the village...I know it gets complicated! 😳

Those are beautiful! What are they? Love the kitchen, I would love to sit in one of those chairs and crochet while warming up and have something baking in the oven. Maybe a mug of hot chocolate too.
June 13th, 2019  
That’s a good start ! Love the colours on them

Congrats on the signatures on documents - suddenly all very real indeed! Pretty flowers

Those peonies are flowering early - nice to know you have a bush - might be several hidden in the garden! Your stove looks so clean on the outside!
