The weather man sent out warnings of high wind gales .
I much prefer to see flowers in the garden than in the vase as they last longer.
The spring blossoms are just opening -
One thing with gardens one can try again next year.
Wellington Botanical garden for this Tulip Sunday.
Time for a give away.
Andrew from Biking Mad whom I brought my Eleanor Schwinn bike from has given a few treats to give away on the blog.
This weeks prize is a bike pump.
I sure appreciated Andrew's help choosing a bike to buy - he understands female talk.
I entered his shop saying I wanted to buy a bike, I had no idea what type of bike but it must have rear brakes (as that is what I had as a kid) and I wanted it to look like a Mary Poppins bike with a basket with a low step in..
Andrew asked me if I wanted gears, I didn't know as I've never used a bike with gears, he assured me gears would be good in a head wind.
Andrew knew just the bike for me, he brought up a picture on his computer to show me and SQUEAL it was purple! SOLD then and there - gasp not like me at all to be so impulsive..
When I picked up my bike Andrew shared he had had another lady order the same bike but a blue one and that he had quite a few phone calls about these bikes..
Was it YOU from reading the blog?
I had told Andrew I'd shared on the blog all about his shop and his wonderful service re Eleanor Schwinn.
Biking Mad gave us some prizes. WHOOP WHOOP.
