A post with pictures!
Seems I don’t post enough snaps here, I have had complaints! So for a change here are some, it’s not as if I don’t take out the electronic image gathering device every so often and record something which I think would amuse or interest you it is just once it has been done in my head job done! Does not help that I waste all my time reading and commenting on your posts!
What have I been up to? Garden is going like crazy with all the rain this year and to show that I have no embarrassment at the state of the veg patch a wide shot including the tumble down victorian summerhouse is here. The rot had set in long before I got involved but enough of it was good to keep it standing, just.
Some of you pick blackberries but here they pick brambles which this year I half trained up canes before abandoning the place for six critical weeks. It has done wonders for the crop and they were amongst the recent harvest and a good excuse to invite friends and family round for a meal. Tarted the presentation up a bit with a cut glass crystal bowl with silver rim as one does.
Sartorial elegance is not a concern in the garden as you can see by the thirty year old boots, may have to change them soon because the laces have finally broken and o yes the souls hardly hang on any more! Sorry about the old lady legs, I really do have no shame, I was enjoying a well earned rest and drink.
So there is a glimpse of life in my little paradise, and a few photos too boot!
