Birdwatch ~ The results are in…

I took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch on Sunday… Setting down with a coffee and some biccies, I was ready and waiting with my binoculars and camera 😀 I’m pretty sure that my little feathery friends knew about it or they were very shy! I saw quite a few birds last year, this year was…

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…

Time to relax & unwind

Not long now till me, Mr.B and Jassy will be off to the beautiful lakes for a break before the whirl wind of Christmas.  We can’t wait.  I’m looking forward to a week of toasty fires, mulled wine, Christmas card writing and long walks 🙂 See you all soon 🙂 Lottie Land Girl Kaz xx

The Calm Before The Storm

Sounds like we’re going to be having a lot of wild weather next week.  I was hoping to pop to the plot to secure things down, but I’ve not managed to get down this weekend.  It’s been a bit on the warm side these past few days, but there’s been lots of lovely golden light…

Autumn Winds

Phew, well it’s been a bit of a blustery morning.  Dots of yellow leaves all over the pavements… I didn’t manage to get to the allotment this weekend but I did have a hour in the front garden, tidying the leaves (a never ending task – it looks as though I’ve not done a thing now!…

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…
