Blogging is remarkable. I recount a tale, ponder over an idea or ask a question and my blogging friends respond; you share ideas, experiences, opinions, ideas often with true candour and often with humour.
Every time I write or post photos I come away richer for the sharing. I learn something new, am reminded of the many things I’ve forgotten, or have my eyes opened from the tales you tell from your worlds and that’s all because of you and your preparedness to share and recount. My last few posts on the Adopted Shed ,what is Thanksgiving all about and the toads of promenade hall, (for a great photo of Toad in the Hole and not Toads pop over and visit Misky, she made a cracker!) demonstrate this sharing perfectly. What can I say but thank you? Oh and catch up with my comments and reading!
It’s a remarkable world we live in.
Today’s photos are from last week’s weekly view – yes I’m behind already 🙂 and this week promises to be just as awkward with trips to London for work, appointments all over the place and non-cooperative weather. You see we have had steady rain for the last few days, leaden grey clouds, all too brief glimpses of blue and sun, with wind that wants to carry your hat away and is heavy with sea salt.
Weather and life conspire to curtail my gardening, but luckily the day I took these photos was the day I planted the Garlic. YES FINALLY! Admittedly there are still more to plant but they are being held back for planting in early Spring, when hopefully the sodden ground won’t be as saturated as it is now. My time on the allotment really is about clearing the brambles that form a hedge, shifting manure around the plot, jobs that have been waiting for me and waiting for the time when I can no longer walk on the beds for fear of walking away several inches taller – mud clinging to my boots.
As you can see I’ve scribbled all over the weekly view photos, some of you have asked can I see the sea? Well yes I can. As well as clearing the brambles and sweeping the leaves I need to work on my landscape photography, I can’t seem to capture what I see with my eyes.
If you want to join in the View Club – remember there are no rules and we love to share! So far we are a small but happy bunch –
The View Club so far:
Plus Sarah the Gardener from Gardening Kiwi (the location is a giveaway no?) takes a panoramic shot of her vegetable garden, she’s been taking a monthly view but in the growing season is taking a weekly view.
I’ll leave you with a silly song from the great Morecambe and Wise, it’s for you – you bring me sunshine and you bring me laughter. Thank you my friends !
