Big Fat Hen.............how embarassing!

Posted: 24/07/2016 at 07:44

LOL!!!


That's certainly one of the Biggest Fat Hens I've ever seen - it would give my late Pa a giggle - we spent many many hours/days/weeks even, hoeing Fat Hen seedlings out of the sugar beet fields when I was much younger.


Good luck with the begonias next year and let us know how you get on - maybe some progress reports with photos so we can spot any alien intruders at an early stage!

Good morning all   G'day Pat 


What's all this about second and third childhoods   I'm still waiting for my first one to end 


The garden is lovely out there in the morning sunlight - and it looks as if the slug nematodes have worked on the veg patch - no more damage to the bean plants and the chard and spinach seedlings are untouched   Whoopee!!! 


It looks as if we'll be lunching out on the terrace with our friends later on today

Daily wildlife moments

Posted: 23/07/2016 at 21:49

A bit of a wildlife moment this morning - I was having a mug of coffee out in the garden, watching some juvenile blackbirds investigating all sorts of things, when suddenly I heard a loud scream and a frog leapt from a rock by the pond over into the undergrowth in the Wilderness, and the blackbird took off with an alarmed squark - I knew that frogs scream if being attacked by birds etc, but I'd never seen or heard it before - it was really quite loud.

These cool kids are on the sofa after supper, watching a programme about David Bowie with lots of filmed live performances   from time to time leaping up from the sofa to move the sprinkler on the flower beds and veg patch.

Lovely news Clari 


Yvie, hope Wonky sees your post and stops calling me a wicked mother for sending her to school when she was little with what I thought were cat flea bites ... she was sent straight home again ... with chickenpox    She was so young that she didn't get it badly, but got her own back by infecting me and I was really ill, confined to bed with spots in unmentionable places 


Love this kaftan  and OH says I don't look like Robert Mugabe or Demis Roussos

Phew! That's the first course and pudding made for tomorrow - the main course is a 'one pot' type dish and a salad so I'll make that tomorrow morning while listening to the Archers.  Cheese, fruit and  and wine are in the garage fridge and there's some lovely fudge to have with our coffee.  I won't tell you what the dishes are 'cos she knows I post on here and may be on a spying mission.  I'll tell you afterwards.


In a hot doolally flap the other day, when all my coolest clothes were in the wash, I ordered myself an  pure cotton batik kaftan online - it's just arrived - brilliant - so cool and I love it - even if I suspect that I may bear a very slight only passing resemblance to Robert Mugabe 


Now I'm going out in the garden i my kaftan to lounge in the shade and read my book SYL
