This is my Wheelmarrow, I planted it up as part of the village gardens competition but it is doing so well in the front garden that I am going to leave it there.

I am sorry that I have not been around for the last week or so. Lots of things have been happening, some good, some bad. The bad bit was my dad died a week ago, he was 83 and had various medical problems but it still came as a bit of a shock.

Anyway the goods bits, the village had a great feast week even if I didn't win the container competition (you wait till next year!). I missed the barn dance as I was down at Wimbledon with Sharron. She had a great championship and was a line judge on the mens final.

Yesterday the village was judged for Anglia in Bloom, I helped escort the judges around the village. Sadly we have had a couple of days of very heavy rain which prevented a lot of the manic grass mowing that usually occurs before judging, also it has flattened or knocked the blooms off a lot of flowers. I think the village still looked lovely and I think the judges were pleased with what theu saw.

I am also pleased that Storm here has been producing some lovely eggs for the last couple of weeks, hopefully the other 2 will start soon.


  1. Sorry to hear about your Dad. I did wonder when I watched bits of Wimbledon whether the lady line judge was your wife.

  2. Love the wheelmarrow - sorry to hear about your dad.


Thank you for your comments.
