Spending and Donations

Thanks to two very generous and welcome donations I've been doing a bit more spending.

Townhead will soon be home to;

2 'Metallic Blue Lady' Hellebores £9.98
1 Mature Pink Lavender Plant £5.38
4 varieties of mint (chocolate, pineapple, orange and grapefruit) £7.48
2 Mature Toad Lillies £12.70 (see above picture)

All prices include postage and packing. I've chosen the above for their good spreading habits and ground cover, with the exception of the Hellebores which I couldn't resist because of their beautiful colour.

I've also had 2 Poached egg plants donated by my mother (1 for Wilson St, 1 for Townhead)
- there is more to follow from that rich source!

I have raided my own piggy bank for

12 violas for Wilson St 99p
2 Rosebushes for Townhead £5.98
1 Birdbox for Townhead £1.00
1 Passion Flower for Wilson St £2.99

I'll be raiding my own piggy bank for some ivy and green lawn edging to cover the breezeblocks, a saw to turn the donated wood into raised beds, some more lavender and anything else that looks good. I've also been stockpiling seeds in preparation for the spring and have been donating my Squidoo earnings each month

After paypal fees that leaves us with £7.56 in the kitty which I'll be adding to in order to purchase 10 mature lavender plants for Townhead.

Please keep the donations coming, whether it's cash, plants, time or suggestions. All help is appreciated.
