Today ....... I

Dug my potatoes up.

Picked a few tomatoes

A sweetcorn

A courgette or two

A handful of runner beans

And some beetroot.

Fat caterpillars polished off a bit more of my broccali

And O/H's storks line-danced in the sun.

Then it poured down so I went inside and put the kettle on ........

Not been on holiday this year but have had some great days out with my special friend..

Last Thursday we went on the Severn Valley Railway to Bewdley. Sixty years ago we used to go to school together on a train like this. The acrid smoke, the net luggage rack above our heads, the leather strap on the window. The emergency cord which you weren't supposed to touch .......  brought it all back ......

Felt  as though I was on holiday

Shadow Storks

My O/H made  these storks out of bits of wood and broom handles a few years ago. They're watching over my broad beans in my little veggie patch and I love them.

Linking up to SSS2

One Picture times Two

Have you ever watched that TV programme, 'Who Do You Think You Are?'  Celebrities are invited to helped to trace their family  ancestry with amazing results.

My mum died in 1948 when I was 4. I had hardly any pictures and knew very little about her family. My daughter signed up for that programme which traces ancestry. Imagine how I felt when I saw an identical picture of the two ladies with the dog posted on someone else's 'tree'. One intrepid email later (from me) and now 60+ years on I find I have a second cousin with a gorgeous family living out in New Zealand, I never even knew existed. Wow!
