.....family life in rural UK .....real life, occasionally funnier....
Lovely pics. Sad about your aunt. All my family is in America and Ifind it really important for the English cousins and American cousins to get together at least once a year for a big weekend. I take my two there for a family fest. It's great and feels great. Just do it.
Wow that is all really coming really well, ours are so small, but then we are in the NE
really impressive work there in that garden. I start all enthusiastic and then get a bit daunted and go inside and Eat Inappropriately.Thanks for coming by my blog - it's appreciated!
A delightful garden. I am enjoying your blog so much.
Hallo Lou, thanks for dropping by my blog. I've got Irish breeding too, (a grandmother) - perhaps that's why I like to write! Looks like you got a real job on your hands but what a lovely house!
Oooh, get you and your raised beds and abundant crops! You do realise that come the apocalypse, we'll all be descending on your house. I can't offer many useful skills, unfortunately: can't skin a chicken or do first-aid. But can spell. Do you think that might come in useful?
Mother Hen: Thanks. Yes I'm going to get there this year somehow...just hope Dave and Cleggy will leave us all a bit of spare change to do so!The MadHouse: I was watching The Edible Garden with the delightful Alys Fowler, if she can do it, we all can... mind you she hasn't got your two intrepid explorers, to dig it all back up again!Milla: I dig enthusiastically and that makes me hungry, so I too then gorge..... lovely... can't wait for the strawberries to ripen! James: So pleased...hope you've read some of our early adventures in the house... some funny so not so bloody funny! Fennie: With my Irish background I may have over-egged the potatoes crop this year. You are a wonderful writer. xxNotwavingbutironing: Can you read minds too??? I had a scary dream last night, about just that: Being descended upon by townies desperate for a bit of fruit and veg after a disaster... All very 'Survivors.' The 1970's version.. not the pants adaptation that's just been on the telly! Actually, you and yours are MOST welcome, bring Barbie ... with pants. (BTW your parents are NOT welcome!)
What great pictures. I recognize some things, but not all of it.I love your stone walls!
Très joli! I wish my greens looked half as lovely! :)
