• We have both noticed how the months change the look of the garden Sheila, and I have a lot of learning to do about what flowers, when, and thus how to get colour throughout the changing seasons … working on it […]

  • Thanks Jane :rose:
    The birds come and go: they were fewer in the blazing heat. …. tended to come in the cooler mornings and evenings. I forgot to mention that the whole family flock of Starlings came a few […]

  • “the space” ;-) , it is named :good: thank you Cilla :lol: :rose:

    morning all, bit cloudy, bit windy, bit sunny, off over the border into Lancashire shortly, to a celebration at Whitewell, nr Clitheroe – what was father-in-law’s church and parish for 27 years is celebrating 200 years since the church building was built – been a chapel or similar on the site for much longer than that, so afternoon tea first and…[Read more]

    • It sounds like a promising day nevertheless Jenny. I hope that you enjoy it. Have a lovely time and tell us about it when you return … :love: :rose:

      • had a lovely day Anne – caught up with quite a few “old” friends in more than one sense of the word – Charles had a good natter with some folk he went to school with or grew up with – it has been a great farming community, not so many of them left these days but a great catch up all round

    • Love Clitheroe, Jenny :good:

      • moved north from Surrey to Clitheroe in 1966 to work at Waddow Hall the Girl Guide Training centre NT and have never gone back south – loved my time in that area, found local work after I left Waddow, met OH and the rest is history as they say

    Glad to see a grey sky above this morning, but whether it will translate into any useful rain is a different matter. May go up onto the patio and perform the Cherokee Rain Dance before I go out to have lunch and see both grandsons and attendant adults. Had the first pick of runner beans for dinner last night and some white turnips which had…[Read more]

  • This is going to be a very valuable resource for you to look back on. Lots of people keep a garden diary – but this is just as good. I always think “Remember this”, as I am going about – but of course I never […]

  • How clever of you to issue a trailer, Cilla – to whet our appetite. I will sit here quietly and await the rest – but shudder to think of the reaction of a younger audience – feet stamping, catcalls, and loud whistles……

  • Lovely Anne – apart from the concrete but that’s gone now :lol: You have a lot more birds than me at the mo – mine have gone on holiday!

  • Morning clickers :-) looks like another glorious day ahead! OH should finish having to use my computer later today – he said I could use his but it’s really not the same and he wouldn’t have time to clear his desk anyway ;-) Will just have to do some washing and reading. The bees and butterflies are very happy with this weather. Many types of bee…[Read more]

  • It does look pretty Anne and am watching the developments on “the space” ;-) Our goldfinches disappeared for a while but are slowly returning. Funnily enough I was watching a baby robin from the back door […]
