Flowers after rain

No apologies and no explanations. I’m just going to say that there has been a lot of life happening in the last few months and some of it has not been very nice. I am slowly returning to things like the garden and photography and other things that I enjoy. That includes here – not […]

With blinking eyes and blistered fingertips

I’ve been “task mesmerised” for the past few weeks, working on a huge piece of written work for a big deadline. There’s been some time for gardening, but no space in my head for thinking about blogging. When not working I’ve really not fancied sitting in front of the computer a moment longer. I’ve been […]

My arse…

…is aching something terrible today after all that digging. Still, gardening aches and pains are one thing, seedling-related fire risk is quite another – pop over and give Luke your good wishes, he needs them more than I do.

Nice weather for ducks

The bank holiday came and went, along with rain that seemed as though it would never end. We had grand plans to put phase 1 of our garden redesign into motion. We did make a start, but were beaten back by the unforgiving weather and the appearance of yet another truly corking cold that ran […]

Heard on the radio last night.

A description of Daphne Du Maurier’s The Birds as follows: “It paints a terrifying picture of the natural world turning on mankind.” Works as a description of Pumpkin Soup too.

Back down to earth

It seems as though we’ve been away for ages, doesn’t it? Well, we have been away, but not all of that time has been spent enjoying the black stuff and the craic. We had a lovely, relaxing time in Ireland, walking (strolling) on beaches in warm sunshine and tiring ourselves out with all the fresh […]

Able to breathe more easily

I am finally over my cold. Huge thanks for this go to Mel who suggested I take zinc as it is proven to reduce the duration of colds. I’m not entirely sure if it was the zinc itself or just the idea that I was taking something effective, but 48 hours after swallowing my first […]

A taste of things to come

I’m so busy right now that all the fun things in my life (like keeping this blog updated) are ending up being somewhat neglected. Aside from making me a bit grumpy (all work and no play…) it also means that I keep having ideas for things to write for you that have yet to see […]
