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”

Daylight Robbery He sat on the garden fence. Under the pretence of attending to his ablutions, the criminal mastermind formulated his cunning plan. He suddenly stopped what he was doing, and with a tweak and a twirl of his dastardly whiskers, he let out a maniacal laugh before parkouring his way to his shiny rubyContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Going Where the Favour Lies How do you know if a door is locked or unlocked? No, it’s not the start of a bad joke. It’s something I use as a bit of a life philosophy, and you know the answer. It’s simple. You turn the handle. Sometimes you have to give the door aContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Bring back playtime! It seems that ‘Billy the Kid’ (see March 2021 – Groceries from the Garden ), and ‘Billy no Mates’, are in competition with each other.

Where’s Wally? I know he’s not supposed to be easy to find. In fact, he really isn’t supposed to found at all. At least not in the UK. No, not our bespectacled friend in a woolly hat and scarf. I’m talking about that moustached, marine gentleman in flippers. Wally, the juvenile arctic Walrus was firstContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

No Kidding! In a small seaside town, a group of kids are causing trouble. They roam the streets in gangs; sometimes terrorising, often vandalising. Helpless residents nervously pull back curtains with trembling hands to gaze upon the havoc wreaked. Oh, the things their eyes have seen! The untold horrors! The trouble makers are a well-knownContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve lived in lockdown land with all its’ variations on a theme.  No matter how many times we get to visit, it doesn’t become any more enticing does it? We wouldn’t want to set up home here. It’s not what we’re made for. Thank goodness for theContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Sowing seeds of hope In my kitchen there is a table covered in seed packets and bits of paper with scribbled drawings of a so called ‘plan’ for the veggie patch.  And, joy of utter joys; there are two heated propagators that look like they’re levitating above it all, coaxing the first shy seeds ofContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Are you planning or preparing? Perhaps you’re doing both? Way back in the last millennium when I was but a youth, I used to join the throng in making my New Years’ resolutions. I quickly learned that I was not that resolute!! Any determination to get fitter or to get up earlier had left meContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”

Seasonal nostalgia My small Christmas tree is suitably festooned and this year I have NOT had to lash it to the table! “Explain yourself”, I hear you cry! I have the pleasure of being owned by a cat who is part feral and calls herself Holly – very seasonal – she chose the name. AtContinue reading “Ponderings from the Polytunnel”
