I don’t care...
I really can’t abide geraniums.
Dahlias top the list of flowers I really really can’t abide, due in no small part to probably the richest boyfriend I ever had continuing to cough up 50p for a bunch of maroon jobbies. Dahlias themselves are appalling in my humble opinion, however maroon takes them to a whole new level of awfulness! The bloke, bit the dust along with the immortal words
‘I suggest you artfully arrange them where the sun don’t shine!’
That bit is a fib, however he was given his marching orders in short shrift.
Decking is another pet hate, why would anyone take the trouble to level perfectly good soil to lay dead trees on? And worse than that run the risk of slipping on the wet deck and breaking their
Net curtains... knitted man-made fibre, to grace suburban homes.
Only good I can see is for folk who enjoy an occasional twitch!
Faux orchids... why?
Alright I will be the first to acknowledge real ones are tricky until with patience you find their happy place. Then they flower for absolutely blooming yonks. Next comes the phase that is hard, especially for one such as me with veins pumping impatience as I wait for them to re-flower. Boy is it worth the perseverance, and the excitement as you have completely
forgotten what colour they are!
Do you think I need to get out more...?
