I hadn’t intended to post anything today because I thought more about the coat would be boring and I didn’t really have much else to show you. However the weather was perfect for gardening this morning so I went out to pick up the dead leaves round the apple tree. Now, I bought the apple… Read More More apple tales and garden flowers
You may remember my sadness that my apple tree had no blossom this year. I had at one point thought I saw a blossom but when I looked closer I couldn’t see it. Then this morning when opening an upstairs window I looked out at the garden and thought that I could see an apple… Read More I found an apple under my tree!
Every year I take a few cloves from the garlic I have in the fridge and plant them in the little bit of earth next to my patio rose. I normally do this in September, then leave them alone till June when they are normally showing signs of being ready to dig up. I have… Read More This Year’s Harvest

Story On Tuesday I went for a walk on the Common with a few walking group friends – all in-line with guidelines and socially distanced. We were taken to Highfield village where there was a tree that had had to be cut down where the guy had carved it into the shape of an arm… Read More What do you think of this!
I always like walking with a purpose (not just ‘for exercise’) and today I had a reason to go to the Common. I did feel that I was maybe a bit late to the party but a few days ago, after reading Nana Cathy’s post I looked for blackberries. In lots of places the bushes… Read More A Fruitful Walk!
Yesterday when I was out in my garden I noticed how interesting the leaves on my Lenten Rose were. I don’t think I have ever seen them so beautiful. Nearby the leaves of the pulmonaria are also amazing. There seem to be two sorts. A blotchy sort. and a spotty sort. The leaves of the… Read More Leaves can be interesting too
