Morning peeps

Off to Cardiff today on the last leg of our tour of the country.  Another train, another opportunity to drink tea and read gardening mags

Sad to watch the last GW of the season last night, but absolutely delighted to hear that all next year's will be an hour long

Very exciting gift yesterday from Mr C - a "copper kettle" rowan tree ......he heard me exclaiming over the one featured on GW a few weeks back ........and theres me thinking he never listens to a word I say.  At the moment I just have a picture - real thing arrives in November

Anniversary of National and Family Tragedy

Posted: 21/10/2016 at 22:25

We lived in Newport at the time, so just down the road. It happened on my second birthday.  I obviously don't remember, but my Mum used to tell me about how she felt that afternoon - numbed by the tragedy.  

They are remembered, every year.

Welcome back Bushman, LilyP and Pdoc - you've been missed.  Glad you enjoyed family time LilyP, hope things stay "on the up" Bushman.  Pdoc, can't find words to express my admiration.  

Meanwhile, back in the mundane .....loving my apples this year. Planted 4 trees in 2009, and they are finally coming in to their own (who knew baby apple trees produce baby size apples ??).  Been having a couple a day for snacks at work for a few weeks now.  Amazing the difference in flavours from different trees .....and makes the supermarket ones taste pretty bland in comparison.  So well worth the wait glad we planted our "orchard".
