Hidden Villages

Posted: Today at 17:34

I saw a good programme on tv last year about the horn dance. More info to be found on the litchfieldlore website. 

Have you seen the dance David? I love these old peculiar traditions but I have never been in the Litchfield area at the right time of year. Rellies live there.

Sheffield has two sword dances, one at Grenoside and one at Handsworth, which some say are ancient. They look strange too. They take place over the Christmas hols.

They won't be hidden for long now.

I can see a time, with problems such as TB, when all farm animals are kept in factory conditions in order to reduce the possibility of infection.

I have never heard of an instant hedge grown in a bag. Please go on....

I'd choose things that you like to look at. You are going to be looking at them for some time.

Soil - how moist?

Yes, Whistle and I'll Come to You with just a smidgen of the Mezzotint (maybe) in the offing.

Plum Trees

Posted: 24/11/2014 at 18:02

This autumn we have been lucky enough to have a selection of the National Fruit Collection's heritage varieties on sale in our local street market. Things that you would not find in the shops and supermarkets have been on offer and the difference in their flavours is remarkable. Flavours and perfumes are, of course, the most subjective of things but I was very impressed by the plum varieties Archduke and Yellow Pershore, less so with the one called Bluetit. Marjorie's Seedling is good too.

I grow mimulus in my garden. Well, I don't, it grows and I hoick it out when it gets too bolshie. It is a lovely thing in reasonable amounts.

PS did you enjoy Remember Me? I did. It had me jumping a couple of times!

Most songs in our house were vaguely bawdy and only embarked upon when the older generation had imbibed enough tonic wine or Newcastle Brown.

One favourite was Keep Your Feet Still Geordie Hinny. It still makes me laugh when I hear it.
