It is our intention to paint them and use them as planters, a herb garden to start and see how far they go. A good way to recycle and some great protection for the plants, the winds here can be quite damaging.
Signs of spring can be seen all around with little shoots starting to poke their way though the toughened ground. I am hoping they are not to eager as once again the temperatures are forecast to drop next week and more snow predicted.
The planter I bought are for the moment in the lobby, making me smile as I pass them but are destined for the front doorstep eventually.
Spring is in the air and with that comes the scanning of the sheep, they do tend to lamb a little later than the mainland due to the harsh conditions. There is a lot of excitement and jubilation from neighbours who have very few empty. They are now been fed extra in preparation for motherhood.
Flowers have also played a big part of my week, given with love but never lovingly, a rough diamond but indeed a rare gem.
I am deeply saddened by the shooting in Florida and for once lost for words. How many more...something has got to change?
See you soon.
Sorry to hear Gerard has not been well.ReplyDelete
The tyres will make brilliant planters. It is lovely to have a little colour to brighten the dull days.
The shooting is very sad, I really don't know what this world is coming to.
I share your sadness, my friend.ReplyDelete
I am always inspired by the creativity, contentment, and coziness of your life. I love following your days, and learn so much from you.
I hope and pray your husband feels better soon, and you both have a cozy evening in your warm and cozy home. Hugs from chilly and cold Pennsylvania!
Spring is definitely in the air here, temperatures in the 80's. Hope your husband is starting to feel better.ReplyDelete
The signs of Spring are encouraging.ReplyDelete
I hope Gerard is feeling better soon. X
I have some huge tyres in my garden to grow spuds in.ReplyDelete
Ooops didn't mean to press send so quickly. Lovely roses and a fantastic old plough in the background of the tyres.ReplyDelete
Lovely pots and flowers, I love the finishing touches of your kitchen and I can commiserate with Gerald, my arthritis causes me a lot of pain in the cold.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear that Gerard has had a flare up and I hope he is recovering well.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers. They really brighten your day don't they.
I hope Gerard is feeling better. Flowers bring so much cheer. It's still light at 5.30 here :-)ReplyDelete
It's good to see signs of spring, beautiful flowers in bright colours bringing cheerfulness on dull and cold days. They remind us to be hopeful and look to the future. I do hope Gerard continues to recover, take care and keep warm, Cathy xReplyDelete
Garden plans next then. I twill be good to learn what grows well in your new garden. xReplyDelete
I think your re-use of the old tires for planting is excellent, and the black rubber absorbs heat from the sun and keeps it, too. I just googled painted tire plants and saw some really neat ideas. Some are painted like bricks! Some are painted on the treads and look like knitting! Have fun with that. I am for banning assault weapons in the USA. Wish us luck. ((hugs)), TeresaReplyDelete
I'm sure the tyre planters will look great when they are done.I Love sheep and lambs hope the new mums to be are all ok.Lovely flowers too.xReplyDelete
Best wishes to Gerard and hope that he is feeling better soon. I wish there were signs of spring here. All I see are neighbours shovelling snow. I have done it twice today already and it is time to do it again. We have mountains of the stuff! Great bonus having all the tires, they will be great protection for your plants.ReplyDelete
I do hope Gerard is feeling much better as the new day comes. I love seeing your lovely flowers. It's such a nice way to brighten our homes in the winter. It looks like you will soon have flowers naturally growing around you!ReplyDelete
We are so sad about the Florida tragedy...There are no words. Yes, we must do something about these horrible shootings.
Have a happy Sunday. ♥
Using the old tires as planters is a great idea.ReplyDelete
Your Primroses are so cheery and the bouquets of flowers are amazing.
Your kitchen is so lovely and the bouquets of colorful flowers just make it even more so...just the thing to brighten up a drab February day.ReplyDelete
There is nothing more peaceful than sheep grazing. Thanks for the nice post.ReplyDelete
WOW Great post!ReplyDelete
follow or follow? let me know
Splendid idea to use the tyres as garden planters and I love your inside spring planter. Flowers are wonderful at this time of year aren't they?:)ReplyDelete
we have grown some amazing potatoes in tyres it seems to work really well and its much easier to get to them than digging our concrete like groundReplyDelete
I do hope that Gerard is starting to feel a little better by now. Spring can't come quickly enough for me, it lifts my spirits to see shoots making their way through the soil, it can't be far away now. The shooting in Florida is very sad, I don't know how many more lives must be lost before something is done.ReplyDelete
It seems that Spring is at the corner....ReplyDelete
Enjoy your Sunday !
I remember helping ewes with their births on cold nights out in the fields. Sure was nice to see all those lambs though.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear your hubby has not been well. May he feel better soon. I love your flower jug! It's so unusual I've never seen one like it before.ReplyDelete
The killings in Florida are horrendous, so many young lives lost or blighted. Why, oh why do they sell these weapons of war to ordinary citizens? Words fail me....xx
I hope Gerard is recovering. What a good idea for using the tyres as planters! I think the worst past of the Florida shooting is that he bought the gun legally when he was 18 ......ReplyDelete
Wow!! beautiful floral arrangement.. love it..ReplyDelete
Oh I do hope Gerard feels better soon! Tell him I said so. Lovely flowers to brighten up spots of the home - I have some flowers from Valentine's day and they make me smile.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers and cute pots, Spring is on its way even though it still feels so far away xxReplyDelete
Spring is around the corner...next month. It's quite chilly here. Had a smidgen of snow this a.m. but it left soon. Chilly even on a walk but no rain or much wind. Your plants are pretty. Hopefully Gerard will be feeling better soon. Nice quiet times are good together. ❤ Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Lovely and delightful pictures, my friend. Thank you for sharing with us. I truly hope Gerard is feeling better! Hugs to you!ReplyDelete
Lovely scenes and words from your week. I especially liked "silent companionship" for that is such a wonderful explanation of how we spend much time, too. I hope Gerard is feeling better. Enjoy those bright flowers.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed all the flowers and color in your post. And I look forward to seeing the tyre garden, especially if you're going to paint them. Hope Gerard is feeling better.ReplyDelete
