A few weeks ago we said goodbye to a good friend. Luckily she isn't going too far!
We had art in common, and I'll miss a tea (half a tea in my case! I only ever drink half) and a chat.
I used to call her garden Eden as it was full of lovely plants, a lot of them productive.
I'm sure she won't mind if I pop a little piccy of a small part of her garden (and us)
She is a fantastic artist and I'll ask if I can post some of her prints in the future.
We are now custodians of a new plant and an little animal that couldn't go to their new house.
The plant was a money plant, I was told it is also a friendship plant.
As for the animal, the cutest little donkey has come to stay.
I gave my friend one useful and one decorative thing.
A trivet, with one chicken- I'm sure the other one wondered off somewhere (they had two.)
And a good luck picture for their new start, complete with guardian angel.
Despite my lazy approach to gardening this year, it did bloom. I was fascinated by the beauty of the lettuce plants that had gone to flower.The red was topped with bright yellow flowers, and looked like a christmas tree.
(Blogger is being a bit piccy with my piccys so can't show the red lettuce with yellow flowers.)
So here is the green one!
Also despite bad mildew, a butternut squash
and a pumpkin have appeared.
My posts may be even more erratic in the months to come, because we have taken the decision to teach my daughter at home. My son is thriving at school, and he will stay there. I have seen my daughters keen, enquisitive spirit dulled and she just does not thrive in a learning environment like school at all.There was nothing wrong with her teachers and no bullying etc. I do feel frustrated at the way they emphasise testing and ticking boxs all directed from the government.The last few days at home have begun a wonderful journey. I know it will be full of ups and downs! I'll tell you of our progress over the coming months.
How does your garden or your little ones grow?
