A place to relax

It’s only taken us 6 years… But this week we’ve finally made a start to our garden.  We never use it, it’s part stone, part weedy/muddy grass… Well no more! We’ve dug the grass up after our friend Eric came to give it its annual (yes annual!!) hair cut 🙂      We wanted stone all…

You can learn a lot of things from the flowers

… Especially in the month of June.  I can’t quite believe that Sunday was the Summer Solstice.  This year is flying by! I spent some time with my camera on the allotment, taking time to appreciate the flowers and the busy bees 🙂 the strawberries are ripening too…                                                    I hope you had a…

Happy Furday To Me

It’s been lovely spending time with Jassy and Mr.B today.  We went for a walk in a local park – so many beautiful springy flowers and colours around.  The birds were singing their hearts out – the soundtrack to our little adventure 🙂 Sitting down for 5 with a cappuccino and sharing cake, I got pretty excited…

Feeling Springy!

Burrrr it’s been a cold one today! But it’s been lovely to explore a local ‘secret garden’ with Jassy this afternoon 🙂 there’s so many pretty spring flowers dotted around, they break up the browny greens of winter.  Here’s what I’ve found…   It makes your heart flutter at the thought of spring being…

The Start Of A New Adventure…

January is finally over… It was a really strange month for me. I don’t like January, I feel sad after the happiness of Christmas and having to say goodbye to another year.  January 2015 had a bit of a twist… I sadly was made redundant from a job that I loved and worked on for nearly four years. …

A Bee In My Bonnet

Back in September, I visited a farm on Snake Pass in the Peak District, with a group of lovely beekeepers from Cheshire Beekeepers’ Association. Some of the people from the group took their hives to the farm last August, using their strong colonies to feast on the delicious heather in the rolling purple tinged hills, surrounding the farm.Suited…

A Day For Hibernating…

I’m sat here, the fire warming my toes and my cup of coffee warming my insides… I’ve had a really relaxed day today, the weather has helped… Battering against the house (I’m pleased to say the roof is still intact – I was a little bit worried!) It’s been nice to just slow down for a…

What A Day!

I have to admit I’m still buzzing from this weekend’s Open Day at our allotment.  It was such a great day 🙂 Blue skies, fluffy white clouds and the sun was shining down on us.  Everyone was rallying round setting up in the morning, ready for show time at 1pm 😀 Tables full of delicious…

If Friends Were Flowers I’d Pick You

This post is quite personal and I just wanted to explain why I’ve not been as active as I usually would be on my social media sites etc. Last week we got some very sad news that a friend of ours from the allotment, had passed away suddenly. Our friend’s name was Tony, and boy…
