Glad you had a lovely day Wonky - hoping to see photos some time 


Joyce, I hadn't thought that it might be Bushman ..... I should have asked him in and made him a mug of cocoa

Morning again  After my last post I was just snuggling down again - it was just getting light - when I heard something that made me get out of bed and look out of the window.


Coming down the hill, past our window, across the road and up the other side was a very sturdy looking man in a  white tee shirt, white knee length socks and a kilt!  He held his arms out to each side for balance and staggered from side to side on stiff straight legs. He must've been very drunk indeed. Where he'd come from and where he was going too goodness only knows!

You still around Pat?   For some reason Im wide awake and can't get back to sleep. Ive made a warm drink and come back to bed; while the kettle boiled I went for a wander around the garden in nightie and bare feet in the moonlight.  I heard tawny owls earlier but now everything's quiet and still and quite magical.


we had very good fish and chips on the beach then went onto the pier for a drink - rubbed shoulders with Richard Coles who is doing his usual Saturday morning Radio 4 programme live from there tomorrow.


The tide was high and the sea was flat calm and very beautiful. 


There's that tawny owl calling again ...

What's this on my rose?

Looks to me like Robin's Pincushion aka  'Bedeguar Gall'  caused by a tiny gall wasp.  


Not really a problem.

As Nora has said - all those problems have been acknowledged and have been prioritised on the 'GW To Do List' - however, there are other demands on the tech team's time  - Nora has promised to keep us informed 

What is this?

Have been out pottering and potting on but suddenly, large drops of rain out of a clear blue sky!  Grabbed the nearly dry washing off the airer on the terrace and have come in for a cuppasoup and a bit of Guilty Pleasure (Judge Judy)   It won't be for long 'cos I need to go back out there as soon as the big ploppy stuff stops - must hoe and thin the spinach beet seedlings

I've never ever had a problem growing fennel near other plants. 


In this garden I've grown it near runner beans, broad beans and french beans, tomatoes, lettuce and Swiss chard with no ill effects.
