  1. wagtails

    Wagtails dance
    Among the flys
    Down the river
    where the water sighs
    Under bridge
    And dappled light
    Among the ivy
    Out of sight.
    Flitting tails
    bob up and down
    above the lords
    and ladies gowns
    ferns stretch their heads
    to see above
    the wagtails dance
    for spring they love

    I hope you will like this poem, i wrote it many years ago about where i live.

    Let me take you on a journey, to a place that I do love
    Full of mystery’s from below and fantasy from above
    We start upon our journey on a bridge by a quiet stream
    Looking forward to the treats in natures living dream
    Stream cascades on stone making pearl-drop waterfalls
    Between the arms of fern lovers, lords and lady’s come to call

    The rippling ...

    Last few weeks have been busy - not had much time for allotment

    3/4 of plot is now dug over - it's all looking good

    Working out planting plans / beds etc was a pain - have settled for now on 6 main veggie beds - fruit is separate - have a rough "crop rotation" plan that should allow dual cropping (spring and autumn sowings)

    Last week planted out roughly 20 each of spring cabbage, PSB and Kale - all were started in modules in the greenhouse at ...

    .... I just want to note that yesterday, for the first time since 1934 it snowed all over the UK. Not in my back yard but nearly everywhere else.

    I haven't been in the garden since the weekend when we sorted froggy out in a new home. I won't get there this weekend either because I'm going up north for a birthday party. (can't go in the evenings now as its dark when I get home from work).
    I think this Friday may see the table and umbrella being put away till spring. BUT... ...

    ... only because they have apple tasting today; NOT to buy anything (mmm..we'll see). We've been reading up on Frogs and got some advice from fellow Grapes and think that our girl should be quite happy where she is. At that end of the garden its damp and cool, there's a woodpile and a wall and lots of places to take cover, including the compost bin. I do hope she has a chance to meet other frogs though, what's the point of one? We want a population!
    To catch up: Dh's mum is out of hospital ...
