I cannot believe it's been 6 weeks since I last posted!!! As my title suggests, I'm a little shocked that so much time has passed. What have you been up to Rachael, I hear you all ask?? Let me have a think, well...... We got all the fencing on the neighbours side finished (by we,… Continue reading ‘I’m as shocked as you are…..’
Is it Wednesday already? I had planned to post this on Monday but here we are, mid-week and not a ‘wein washed’ as the saying goes (just in case you wondered, that means ‘not a child washed’ which really means that not much has been done!) The plant planning has stalled. The reality is that… Continue reading ‘the course of true gardening never did run smooth’

Definitely a bottle of beer) in the garden and then next it’s blowing a gale and I’m fretting over the survival of my plants. Motivation… Continue reading ‘this is a marathon, not a sprint’
As the title suggests hello to anyone and everyone who might pass by and read this blog. It’s a fanciful idea that came to me on a whim and I’ve no idea how or if it will succeed (and by succeed I mean if anyone, and I do mean just 1, will read it!) As… Continue reading Hello to All!
