To The Rescue!

 pottering round the garden centre last weekend, I came across these rather sad looking plants on the reduced table - a droopy delphinium and several trays of lobelia. Never one to abandon a tired plant (especially when only 20p each) I've now re-housed them, given them some desperately needed water and they're looking much better.

 I'm hoping they'll turn out as lovely as these 'rescued' pansies

and this blueberry which was just a sad twiggy thing this time last year and is now ready to flower and perhaps even fruit :)

  1. I'm sure with some tlc they'll do well.I love rescuing plants too, Mary. There's something satisfying about enjoying things other people have passed on.
