I am not sure if I have mentioned that I am now on the committee of our local gardening club …
It went something like this
“Karen, please will you be on the committee for the gardening club”
“But we need someone who knows about gardening”
“No, thank you”
“But you have so much to offer”
“Really, I am so busy, I just don’t have time to contribute to a committee, so no, but thank you for asking”
“Karen, we really do think that the gardening club needs people like you on the committee, you have so much gardening knowledge and enthusiasm, please will you think about it”
“Oh! OK, I will phone you tomorrow, but honestly, I really don’t have time”
The next day arrives, and I make a phone call ….
“Hi it’s Karen here, I am really chuffed that you asked me to be on the committee, but I really don’t have much spare time, I would love to accept on the understanding that I cannot take on board any role, which I feel a bit bad about as I am not keen on people who sit on committees without contributing”.
So, I was elected to the committee and of course, the person who asked me in the first place knew me well enough to know I would get stuck in! Which I have.
Last week we had our Christmas party and I did a little picture quiz – so for fun, have a look at the following flower images to see if you can name them. No prizes I am afraid, and I am sure that most of you will know them all
(They are all from my garden – so that should give you a clue)
I will put the answers on a separate page here, so no peeking!
I have not quite mastered the gallery function on wordpress – so if you click on a picture it will take you to a full sized image, but then you will have to use the back button to get back to this page. (Sorry)
