  • These didn’t load!
  • Evening all, I enjoyed my walk, I saw 2 tractors. 3 dogs behind a fence thankfully,some swans and no people. I walked 3 miles altogether it was good being in the sunshine and the quietness.
    I took these pics.

    Morning Jane, we have sunshine with a brisk breeze. So off for a walk shortly, need a change of scenery! I can’t get a Tesco or Sainsbury delivery date , they have nothing and aren’t releasing any new dates from the 18th April!!!! I hope the alternatives turn out ok.👍💐🐝

    • Hi Lynn :-) Hope you had a nice walk. Had that order booked for weeks but haven’t managed to book the next one as yet. I’m not panicking – I’m lucky to have this one, it seems.

    I’m glad your friend now has a letter from the council. You are so right, I don’t see allotments as a hobby at the moment ,they are essential on so many levels. I’m just off for a walk locally, as I haven’t been out of the garden for 3weeks apart to shop for food., So need a change of scenery, plus it was cold and miserable yesterday, matched my…[Read more]

    Morning Cilla, I’ve got a big shop to do tomorrow!!! I monthly shop for tins, pasta, rice, cleaning, washing items and toilet rolls!!! Then just add weekly fresh, but might have to change this with the limit on certain items or if they are in stock.
    I read your click quickly, and thought you’d sowed your flowers &rocket in the next village!!!! I…[Read more]

  • Morning all, a dull start, but some sunshine promised later?? It feels warmer today, I ended up doing a lot of nothing yesterday, lack of sleep etc. I checked the greenhouse and have 1cucumber sprouting and 3butternutsquash &Japanese squash, can’t remember the name!!! Also found more cucumbers seeds if I need to resow.
    I did finish sewing up this…

    • Cucumbers always seem difficult I have only grown them the last few years and the mini ones but they seem tempermental to start off. r

    • Morning Lynn, a lot of nothing isn’t too bad at present. ;-) Love the wee slipover. :good:

    • Morning Lynn. I had a bit of a non-day too, as you say, lack of sleep. Hopefully today will be better. That’s a nice little top, good you have your knitting. If it is warmer I must concentrate more on veggie sowing. My broad beans, peas and sugar snaps are all germinating. I must sow another cucumber, I don’t know why, they never reach fruiting…[Read more]

    • Try keeping them on the dry side Cilla, certainly up until they are fruiting, and do you plant them on a “mound” so that the stem doesn’t get damp? It’s too cool here for them, so I’ll wait another week or so before sowing. :good:

    • Morning Lynn :-) That’s a nice little top. We could all do with one like that for these chilly mornings ;-) Will sow all my squash-type seeds next week when it’s warmer. HAGD :-)

    • That is cute Lynn…wish I could knit like that …I’d make tiny teddy tops ;-) ;-) HAND :rose:

    • … and good morning :-) :rose:

    Evening Karen,my internet is even slower than usual, guess it’s being used more!!! and yes the streets are quieter and cleaner.👍
    Take care 💐🌻🌷

    • Can imagine a lot more wildlife may venture further into our built up areas due to this quietness, at least they will bring a moment of happiness in these times, as long as they stay safe too :love:

    Evening Mick, glad your ok.
    It’s been cold in Norfolk today,I put the heating back on, after the oil delivery!!!!
    I too make a list Karen,so that I only go out once a week for shopping and like you I could make it twice, but trying to be good!!!

  • This made me smile Jane, there won’t be much vegetation left!!!! I loved the bit where they were on their hind legs eating the hedge all in a row!!! :lol: :lol:

    Morning Anne, what a difference a day makes,have popped the heating on whilst I have my coffee & toast,have run out of cakes& biscuits,might bake some after my coffee break. Enjoyed reading about your magpie’s, if they do next nearby,may I suggest earplugs,once the baby magpie fledged,we had a pair nest is one of our willows two years ago and the…[Read more]

    • Hi Lynn :-)
      Yes I am aware of their piratical reputation, but they are so beautiful [and were helpful clearing up ;-) ] I was won over with the idea of them being close by. We wont hear them as there is double-glazing in the Glassroom :lol: I’ll keep an eye open and let you know what happens :lol: :good:
      Have a nice day and stay warm :good:

    Morning Jane, my fringe is straight that’s about the only thing!!!
    I shall wait until the oil has been delivered, before doing my Pilates.

  • flowerpotlynn posted a new activity comment 2 days, 18 hours ago

    Morning Cilla, hopefully the driver will work out where to go, but they don’t always send the same driver!!
    Yes some interesting haircuts at least we will all the in the same boat!!!

  • flowerpotlynn posted a new activity comment 2 days, 18 hours ago

    Morning Karen, I was sort of thinking, I thought I was impatient about things growing, but this is really ahead of the game!!!

  • Morning all, not a sunny start so far!!! But it’s due to stay dry. Had my first blight warning this morning, haven’t even got all my spuds in yet :confused:.
    Oil delivery due today, that’s about as exciting as my day is going to get!!! Right off to get showered and dressed as he could be here as early as 8am.
    No haircut yesterday, so a DIY fringe…[Read more]

    • Morning Lynn, very cloudy here too, but the wind is now round in the west, so I’m hoping it won’t be as cold. A blight warning? That’s cracked! :confused: :good: On the oil delivery, at least the price is well down. I did laugh about your hair cut, I was just wondering if I could hack some of my fringe off, we’re all going to be doing the same.…[Read more]

      • Morning Karen, I was sort of thinking, I thought I was impatient about things growing, but this is really ahead of the game!!!

    • Morning Lynn. There are suremgoing to be some interesting haircuts around in the next few weeks :lol: Stay away from that oil delivery driver and enjoy your day :-)

      • Morning Cilla, hopefully the driver will work out where to go, but they don’t always send the same driver!!
        Yes some interesting haircuts at least we will all the in the same boat!!!

    • Morning Lynn :-) Hope your fringe cut is better than mine :lol: Don’t forget your pilates – I’ve done my skip ;-) Have a good day :-)

      • Morning Jane, my fringe is straight that’s about the only thing!!!
        I shall wait until the oil has been delivered, before doing my Pilates.

    I know Jenn, it’s pretty rubbish especially as we are gardeners and we haven’t got much else to do at the moment. I bought a packet of allergy tablets the week before lock down!!! I find the ones that you take every four hours are the ones that only really help! Mines not too bad at the moment, June/July is my worst time.
    I’m giving my Tom’s a few…[Read more]

    Saw this on Facebook this morning Karen,but didn’t know how to post it on here, so Thankyou. It gave me goosebumps and made me cry, beautiful.🌻🌷

    • Thought it was incredible Lynn, it’s a powerful song at the best of times but this was amazing. :love:

    Afternoon Jenn,I know what you mean regarding hayfever, I’m a sufferer and it started just after lockdown, but itchy eyes and nose aren’t Corona virus symptoms!!!!
    Thankyou for reminding me about sowing some basil, I’ve got seeds from last year, so hopefully they will grow. My tomato seeds seem to be a bit slow this year??? I don’t want to sow…[Read more]

    • Hiya Lynn. Oh, it’s horrid, isn’t it. Everything is running, sore eyes, headache, scratchy throat and then coughing which sets everything off running again. I did a comparison check between hayfever and ‘you know what’ online and that calmed me down :lol: I feel awful…like I have been smacked in the face with a big pollen shovel. Have sown…[Read more]
