Sun is shining

First day of sunshine in a while yesterday and I managed a walk with the dogs – joy! The woods were as ever beautiful, greens everywhere, birds singing and the three dogs running crazily up and down and after sticks. Didn’t go right up to the pond where the dogs swim as there is a […]

Potting on is fun…..

Am currently having literally a cracking time – broke my ankle a couple of months ago and still in a cast though that may be coming off tomorrow. Then had a fall in the shower 3 weeks ago and have fractured my pelvis is two places – very painful and simply a matter of waiting […]

Events coming up….and pretty pictures of alliums

Just thought I’d remind you about events…… but really wanted to post pretty pictures of alliums which I am not responsible for – well I grew the alliums but didn’t take the photos – aren’t they glorious – and also Heuchera Lime Marmalade in the woodland and it has those vibrant green leaves all year.

Bertie, our miniature chocolate labradoodle (sort of cocker spaniel size) swam in the pond having manfully carried what amounted to a tree trunk in his mouth all the way there. Never […]

Hiccups…..

I realise it is rather a long time since my last post. I don’t want to end up writing a long rambling post that no-one can be bothered to read so I am going to try and briefly summarise the key messages I want to transmit in this post and then expand on anything I […]

Getting formal….constitution,charity or social enterprise, funding applications & more……

The concept of creating a sustainable therapeutic garden has been a vision of mine for at least two years now; that elephantine gestation period has allowed me and others committed to the project to really mull over what our hopes and aims for the project are and also, critically, to explore whether it is feasible (which we believe it […]
