Thick blooms clung to the sides of my uncle’s barns. He didn’t think they would spread as much or as far, but the more he cut them back, the hardier they became.
We joked about them being triffids as we walked around the buildings to assess the damage. All hope of controlling them had faded in the hunt for weed killers what with new regulations topped with heavy fines if you didn’t comply. He lived in such a peaceful valley, drumming up trade in respect of various ventures involving livestock, guinea fowl and even a trout farm over the years. Now there was a warning of floods and he would have to evacuate his property. Maybe this was Nature’s way of solving the problem.
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.

Great take Di! 🙂
Oh my! That is drastic measures to get rid of weeds… But I suppose if there is going to be a flood you might as well focus on the silver lining!
Every silver lining has a cloud……………….
Aw, I liked this. Probably because I could relate so well. Here in the southern US things grow like crazy and keep coming back the more you try to get rid of them.
Nature at it’s best.
