Morning all   Hope you got more sleep Hosta. Have a good day Chicky.

That doesn't mean that everything we do is good of course , but morality is a man- made construct ...

Ellen, thank you for letting us know - I'm so very sorry to hear such sad news. Michael was always so keen and so positive and unfailingly good humoured. I shall miss him. My sincere condolences to his family and all who loved and cared for him.

Autumn fruiting Raspberry

Posted: 03/05/2017 at 13:50

Ours are against a fence ... when they get tall and blow about in the wind we just thread a long string between two hooks fixed to the fence at either end of the row  of raspberries, to keep them from getting too unkempt.  

Wildlife Pond

We were gazing into our pond the other day ... as we often do ... when we saw a group of Smooth newts in the water, getting amorous 

Nothing in the world's more interesting than a good pond
