Birthday Gifts

Look what my lovely daddy made for me.... a bench for my greenhouse. He also repaired it from the wind damage earlier in the year. Mum and Dad bought me a Pink Lady apple tree. It's a minerette tree that doesn't grow very big, so perfect for the allotment. Rob has just planted it for me and will teach me to prune it when it grows a bit.

You have the most wonderful family, Fran! But then that's a reflection of who you are too. The tree sounds charming although I don't know it, and the bench! What a dad!

Fran said...

Thank you Val. Pink Lady apples are my favourite. Juicy, crisp, sweet with a hint of tang. When I come and visit I will bring you some! Xxx

Happy Birthday Fran !!! And many, many, many more :)
Your bench is great. You should be able to start a lot of seedlings there in all that lovely light. I agree you have a wonderful family. I enjoy seeing and hearing about your get togethers. Have a wonderful day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Happy Birthday Fran - are you a Scorpion too? Mine was on the 9th - was yours today? Anyway - enjoy your apples!

Fran said...

Diane - Do you think that our devotion to Pink Ladies are a reflection on us (ie all sweet and feminine)!!!! xxx
Connie - I think we are both blessed with having lovely close families xxx
Janys - Thanks you, my birthday was on the 10th. I tried to leave a birthday message on your blog, but I couldn't get a signal, but Happy Birthday too xxx

Don't worry Fran - glad yours went well. I got a few well thought out gifts too including some little bits of attractive handmade jewellery by my daughter. Won't mention that she told me to finish the bits off as she hadn't found the time to do it!!!

When I get to be at the cabin more, I want a greenhouse somewhere. It would be fun to grow some things out of season, and get my sprouts started earlier. - Margy

Happy VERY belated birthday Fran! The presents you received are brilliant and I think that I'd be just as thrilled as you are :) When I buy eating apples in the shop I generally go for pink ladies...they're pretty, crisp and delicious. What a bonus to have some growing in your allotment!
