September 18th – Another delivery??

Our friends from Amazon arrived again today, this time with a house for a hedgehog that has been roaming in the garden. We positioned it in the fenced of fruit tree area, to ensure the 4 legged children don’t disturb it, with some hedgehog food, mealworms and water. I thought we’d retired from the B&BContinue reading “September 18th – Another delivery??”

September 14th – visual associations….

Today’s picture is of a spiders web we saw covered in morning dew whilst in the New Forest over the weekend. I weirdly thought of the song “I swallowed a spider to catch the fly” Click the link if you haven’t heard it before, but I warn you, once it’s in your head it’s difficultContinue reading “September 14th – visual associations….”

September 7th – Park run

Our 4 legged children wasn’t sure about being held by this statue, erected to celebrate the park runs held here. I used to run until my knee decided to play up.

September 6th – Injuries…..

September 5th – don’t throw food away…

We had a few sad looking vegetables in the fridge, and so my clever wife made a delicious soup. Carrots, peppers, sweet potato, cumin, paprika, cannellini beans, leaks, tomatoes and courgettes, with some chili oil were thrown in the soup maker and the result was fab, mopped up with some warm bread. When the kidsContinue reading “September 5th – don’t throw food away…”

September 1st – A different treat…

Dad’s turn to cook again as Mum was doing her classes, but a request was made for Spinach pancakes (recipe here). They were pretty good, but as normal I cooked too many, so I wondered what to do with the spares??? Well, the dogs always have a chew after our dinner and join us toContinue reading “September 1st – A different treat…”

August 31st – Fungi

An amazing Fungi seen on a tree whilst playing golf this afternoon. I am pretty sure it is a bracket fungi, but there are so many different types. Bracket fungi feed on wood, either as living trees or dead logs, and the brackets are their fruiting bodies. These form shelf-like structures singly or in groupsContinue reading “August 31st – Fungi”
