Today is Saturday 22nd August

Plans are for a quiet day, so rather than blather on, I’ve got some pictures for you.
I have had my eye on this tomato for a week, and I saw today it has a chum.

We thought we were growing the Moneymaker variety as we had in the cottage, but that is obviously not the case. These are huge bulbous fruit akin to Italian tomatoes but we don’t remember actually buying a packet!!!Β  There are loads coming.
I took a look at our sprouts too, and they are thriving.
But, look at these, the bush is awesome at the moment.

The ancient mariner, and there are still at least another dozen blooms to come.


This is the In Loving Memory rose. The fragrance is fabulous.

There are two more buds on our Peace rose too.

Keep safe everyone

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.

    Beautiful and thriving, by the looks of things. 😊

  4. You obviously have a bright green thumb! Congratulations on all the lovely growing things. Those roses must be a joy and a true wonder to behold! Thanks for sharing them with me! ☺

    • Not really. The roses were pruned right back last year because they were so badly damaged with the weather, so that seems to have paid off. They are so beautiful and BIG, it;s great to share them
      The greenhouse is a learning curve for both of us and so far we’re doing OK. Loads of tomatoes coming, so I’m looking forward to bakes, bolognese, chili and lasagne with home produce (save the cow) as we’ve got those lovely onions

    Your tomatoes look wonderful! We are coming to an end of our tomatoes – just a few beefsteak yet to ripen and as soon as Sparky harvests the cherry tomatoes (probably Monday) those will be done. And yet we are still getting those darned squash!
