Ponderings from the Polytunnel

 It’s Only Natural I couldn’t make out what it was at first. All I could see was a fan shaped tail, neatly finished with a black trim, bobbing up and down on top of the trellis. It turned out to be the back end of Mr Pigeon, tenaciously wooing his intended with a gentlemanly bow.Continue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

There’s a tinge of sadness inContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Sometimes, we hear what isn’t being said or seeContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Nearly didn’t make it!

Last time I said I’d see you in Oct – only just made it! It’s been a funny month in the garden. Mild, with heaps of the wet stuff but not so much of the bright stuff.

Ponderings from the Polytunnel

I don’t know what to call this one! It’s been hanging in the air for a while now. Sometimes you could smell it, sometimes you could hear and feel it but now we’re beginning to see it. The natural world is savvy and has been preparing for it, and now the change is finally here.Continue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Summing up September – something different

Garden life in photographs – chickens, squirrels, wasps, a rogue rat, flowers, harvest, preserves, frogs, kindling, children, dogs and foxes – it’s been busy in my little haven! Figs, plums, greengages, apples, hazelnuts, melons, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, courgettes, giant mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, salad leaves, spring onions, cucumbers, eggs, herbs, and a few late strawberries haveContinue reading “Summing up September – something different”
