It has been a very good week. Highlights included: wheeless barrows, gin kits, a static Elvis, celeriac, a plethora of books, downward dogs in the rain and most importantly an adorable cat. I had tales to tell and pictures to share but not the time, or possibly the inclination, to write a blog about them.Continue reading “Sixish on Saturday”
Another Six on Saturday and, with a little help from my friends, specifically my blogging mate Jude, I have discovered the link button in this “oh, so moderne” block editor. It seems fair to have used this newly discovered facility to direct you to Jude’s site where no doubt she has also, or is aboutContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Linkful”

I would like to putContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Accusations”

And we are talking about plants not the gardeners! Unchecked, interlopers invade, the vigorous stifle the slow-growing and the neglected grow unkept. I have been clearing an areaContinue reading “Rogues and Roses”
The weather forecast for today was dreadful; torrential rain, howling north easterlies, possibly frogs. So, as a dedicated disciple of Six on Saturday, and a most sensible and organised person, I took my photos yesterday. Today, so far, has been quite dry. This is not the point, which is that I was prepared for allContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Aforethought”
