Day 165 – Open Gate…

Sometimes when I see an open gate I wonder where it leads to, and what it is intended to keep in (or out). This gate however is directly in front of our house, and leads into the farmer’s fields. It’s normally left closed to discourage casual walkers, but has been left open by a neighbour taking their dog for a walk…

Day 160 – It’s A Jungle..!

A break from the almost constant rain over the last week gave me an opportunity today to check out the greenhouse. And how it’s grown! So much so that the sunflowers, which I should have planted out a couple of weeks ago, have now reached the roof. I really do need to get out there and sort things out…

Fair to say we did not expect to light a fire at home during June! It’s been pretty cool the last few days and seriously wet, so sitting in front of the fire this afternoon with coffee and hot chocolate seemed a great idea…
