A good harvest of Marrows and Squash’s, put out front of house for help yourself.

One of the most loveable characters in the strip cartoon Peanuts was Linus Van Pelt.  For Linus, there is one thing: the Great Pumpkin.

Well Golden!! August is almost at an end and as I write this shafts of sun burst through grey clouds and rain looms on the horizon.

Like a child on a long car trip, i have started to ask "if it come yet?" The “it” being rain. We have had a heatwave and every one is slightly fractious and snappy. 

So much has past since I last wrote up these jottings, but mainly I have been a guest of the NHS in Yeovil and since returning home have had to learn to walk again

A busy busy morning in the garden. It was time to sort out the Wisteria for starters. It needed and got a Chelsea Chop (unlike my hair).

The heatwave continues and we water the garden each day, dried the bill but what else can one do.

Stage 3 completed

All good things are worth waiting for. A year ago Paul, George and I went to Burncoose Nursery on a plant hunting trip.

A very quite May Day as we are all still in Lock Down, however the sun came out and I was able to sit on the terrace and enjoy the view.

At last rain so welcome, but after all the sun over the best part of April it feels cold, lit the fire last nigh and have left heating on today.

I like to walk the garden with George, its rather like Sir Bastian Spratt doing the round in Carry on Doctor.
