It took a while for me to get this and if you want to know the full story of how and why – you’ll have to read about why Peter Donegan was a bit shy here…
Gardens by Peter Donegan, Landscaping Dublin, Ireland
I got this in the post yesterday from Green Party Mininster of State Trevor Sargent. It was a little bit of a surprise to be very honest, but a most appreciated and very welcome one.
After Bloom I sent out a postcard to [the so very many who deserved a massive] say thank you. Trevor received one. Credit where it’s due, he also stopped by the garden during Bloom; lives not to far away from me and as you can gather from this photograph, we’ve know each other a while now –
Of course it took me a little to figure out exactly what it said…
For those of you who had the same trouble, I’ve translated below! [well, if you’re going to call it a hippopotamus…?!]
Peter, A Chara
I was to see that big pink hippopotamus of a boat at the electric picnic. It fitted right in just like the family of topiary elephants. See you soon. P.S. Thanks for your card! Le meas glas
The question is can you help? Not too big! Not a jumbo! Just one like this or close enough. I don’t want to fly it. It doesn’t even have to look good…. anyone wanna know more – pick up the phone!
This time…. I’ve started where I finished off! Tuesday 9th September saw me go live on air [again!] as we not only started a National campaign to look for a sponsor – but – also an aeroplane!
If you are interested, a PR list for the last 2 show gardens and how I and the donegan landscaping design team can tailor this to suit your company is only a cup of coffee away. Why not drop me a line?!
It had been organised to tweet meet-up at the pink boat at the stradbally festival. And it happened. Myself, Maryrose, David, Frankiep, Ciara, Debbie and some extra added friends joined to kick off the celebrations.
Of course it has a home for life now and to all [you know who you are] I thank you – from my heart.
This is a gardening weblog of course. And the deal has always been if its greenie or related to my business it goes in. So I wont do a review of The amazing Stunning or The Sex Pistols. But, to say I was proud, was an understatement. I was also so very honoured that this could be shared with others in my life. To those who I met at The Picnic, who sang, laughed and shared time with – thank you all. It was an honour.
Now all thats left to do I suppose is walk away….
