Little Weed

I preferred The Woodentops (I loved Spotty Dog),

but another favourite Watch with Mother was The Flower Pot Men which was first transmitted in 1952 before I was born!
In order to attract bees and birds into our ‘green and pleasant land’, a few weeks ago we purchased a box of flower seed from the garden centre which promised a mixture of perennials and annuals and up to 15,000 flowers.
We scattered the contents and it appears we have something coming up.
The thing is we have no idea what as neither of us are gardeners, so for all we know, we could be lovingly tending weeds.
Time will tell, as will pictures when we have our ‘show’.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    As a small child, my brother organised the games and was self selected to be Andy Pandy in some with me as Teddy. My gran became, by default Lubyloo (no idea how to spell that). which she hated. I can remember her sticking her tongue out at my brother when he told her she’d got top prize again!

    I loved the Woodentops. Insects love weeds – who is to say which are the weeds anyway!

  7. I have a vague recollection that at the end of Andy Pandy that Looby Loo used to get in the same box as Teddy, it was much later before I started to wonder what they might get up to. Which reminds me of the old joke, “I thought Muffin the Mule was a sexual offence.” On a lighter note I have a memory of a program called Tales of the riverbank which used a real hamster, rat and guinea pig with a voice over by Johnny Morris or someone like him. When I got older and my brother who was two years younger than I went to bed, which was at the same time which always struck me as a little unfair but we didn’t argue about anything in those days. There came a time though when I was allowed to sneak back downstairs to watch Dixon of Dock Green. We were so easily pleased in the old days!!
