Irish Mail On Sunday 23rd May 2010

Yesterday, Eugene Higgins of The Irish Mail On Sunday did a great Piece on The Garden Group with the tagline How a Bloom maverick is taking bloggers on tours of our ‘secret’ gardens and titled it A www.walk on the wild side

The main picture is of Dena [@curlydena], Mom Vena [@VenaW] and Dad Andrew Walker. [And to think I spent so long brushing my hair that day 😀 ] The other two images are courtesy Jennifer Farley Photography [@laughing_lion]. I’ve asked Eugene for the main text of the piece and will post it below as soon as I get it. For now…..

Irish Daily Mail – Free Seeds Collection

...

Friday just passed I got a most welcome press release in my post box. I’ve a lot to be doing at this moment, but I thought this a happy and deserved post.

From April 24th and for 6 days following readers of The Irish Dail Mail will receive a free packet of Suttons seeds. The selection includes pansies, poppies, snapdragons, sweet williams and cornflowers. The press release says they are worth about €20. I would have thought more to be honest.

Apparently some gardener called Gerry Daly 😆 [Hiya Gerry, gardeners banter eh!!] who I know loves to read this weblog….. will write a nice article to explain all the how to do’s. No point in me doing so then….  😉

Humour aside, it’s a great offer. A happy one and one of the best I’ve seen this year. Well done to The Irish [give me a job 😉 ] Daily Mail.

*thanks Deborah
