Another year older!

It's that day of the year when I find myself another year older. I really am just a thirtysomething now! *big sigh*

However some of the best things about being another year older are the consolation prizes! I had been dropping subtle hints about needing a wheelbarrow, so this morning when I was led out into the garden to recieve my birthday present I was hoping for just that...

I hadn't expected it to be full of beautiful plants. It was a lovely surprise.

I had a treat for the house too. After a visit to the Peterborough International Orchid Show yesterday I just couldn't resist this rather quirky but gorgeous beast!

Paphiopedilum Moustache

A big thank you to my family and friends for all the lovely birthday wishes, cards and presents (especially the pink ones!) I have had a wonderful day.

Hope you had a wonderful day. What a great present - not only a wheelbarrow, but plants too! It's my birthday today (longest day) which is bittersweet, as I always think that we're plummeting towards Winter from this point forward in the year.

The orchid is a stunner!

At least you get a nice long day for gardening! :o)

Hope you've had a good day full of presents and cake.
