Six on Saturday – Top Secret Kittens

It was touch and go as to whether I would make this week’s Six on Saturday.  Luckily, I got back in time from my top-secret kitten-rescuing mission to complete my task.  Rest assured that all kittens are safe and well.  I hope you are too.  Any more information needed then pop on over to P’sContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Top Secret Kittens”

Six on Saturday – Mind Control

Until about an hour ago I was definitely not going to partake in Six on Saturday today.  I was strong.  I was recalcitrant.  I would not be bowed.  Exactly who does that Propagator chappy think he is anyway?  Controlling my Saturdays, forcing me to go outside into the big outdoors, rummaging around in my gardenContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Mind Control”

The First is Always the Best

This is my first aquilegia flower of the year.  Undoubtedly there have been some that I missed along the way.  I was probably admiring foals, sending WM’s into water butts, falling into nettles, eating my sandwiches, chitty chatting, digging, fighting ground elder, dancing or perhaps even day-dreaming.  Either way today’s columbine was looking marvellous, asContinue reading “The First is Always the Best”
