Poppies And Other Things
We have had three months of almost non stop rain,and although it has done very little for tourism, and farmers it has helped our earth bunding blend in.
You may remember back in March /April we formed a earth mound around our fields.We were having problems with Gypsies dumping sick and pregnant horses on our land.
this was the damage they were doing to access the fields
and this was our response March
What a difference
I am so pleased with how this turned out,I sprinkled a few boxes of wildflower seeds, and the result is wonderful.
We also planted 1000 willow stems which are all doing well.
My Son also fell victim to the poor weather,he had his Stag do on a very wet weekend,but luckily he was able to get some use from the giant inflatable bungee .
And Wilson tried his very best to join in.
I have done a few creative things,
Pages for the European journal swap I am part of.
My monthly pages for the milliande swap
My Father was 85 yesterday and we met up with my brothers and their wives by the River Avon for a meal.
This is a small village just outside the Roman city of Bath where I grew up.
On our way home we called into a dealer to view what we call motor homes ,but I believe in the USA they are called RVs,this one was larger than my parents cottage.
I have received some goodies in the post
A twinchie from the talented Sonja who also hosted the swap.
and another from Beth containing the most delightful birds.
And journal pages from Lucine
I have fifteen months off from my weekly child-minding duties, but I know Little Miss X will be visiting often.
we have had fun.
