  1. Hi Netta! How are you? I could say Typsa has rain on my parade by sending me here! (At least for the time being). But I’m sure things will improve. won’t them?

    • Alfons so good to hear from you!
      Typsa rained on your parade – that is a great example hehehe 🙂
      Well, here in Barcelona it has been quite rainy recently so at least you are not missing out on a fantastic spring or anything like that…
      Are you coming back soon?

    I was really chuffed with your choice of idiom and colourful phtograph. To rain on your parade is an idiom I use quite a lot. Come rain or sun it always bring a smile to my face, and brightens up my mood.

    • Tutti,

      I am truly touched, however, for me having someone like you (ie. someone who is not my mum – and thanks mum if you’re reading this!) reading and commenting and enjoying my blog – and who knows- maybe even learning something – is the biggest award of all.

      In any case, I hereby present you, Tutti, with the ‘Top Commenter on The English Gardener’s Blog who is not the Gardener’s Mum Award’
      It’s a very coveted title I can assure you 😉

      • Hooray I’ve a lucky streak it rains awards on me! Thank you very much – I feel very honored, and greetings to your mum 🙂 And yes, I love you little lessons – someone must refine my gibberish!
