September 4th – Old pair of jeans grow on plants???

Oh…. I must get my ears checked,¬† Aubergines grow on plants ūü§£. Mrs L was given this plant for her birthday from a friend and she is delighted to announce that there are already 2 fruits (yes, fruit not vegetables), and lots more flowers. According to Wikipedia…..Eggplant, aubergine or brinjal is a plant species inContinue reading “September 4th – Old pair of jeans grow on plants???”

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”

August 27th – Happy Birthday Alfie

Alfie turned 2 today, and he was rather taken with his portrait given to his Mum for her birthday. As mentioned in previous posts, he is a real character and constantly makes us laugh with his antics, and constant jabbering, although his best days start with a walk, followed by food, washed down with coffee,Continue reading “August 27th – Happy Birthday Alfie”

August 26th – When in Cornwall…..

A pasty must be sampled…. We went on one of our favourite woofer walks, an easy circular walk starting in Mawgan Porth, and heading in land to St Mawgan, with the customary stop for coffee on the footpath and the lunch at The Falcon Inn in St Mawgan. Cornish pasties¬†originated as portable lunches for tinContinue reading “August 26th – When in Cornwall…..”

August 25th – RNLI

We took the 4 legged children down to Cornwall for a few days, to see their Cornish cousins and owner. A trip in Dizzy (our motorhome) wouldn’t be normal unless we had some wild weather, and today was no exception thanks to storm Francis. This mean’t the furry friends needed to stay out of theContinue reading “August 25th – RNLI”

August 22nd – Water Lily

Our new water lily produced it’s first flower today, so I thought i’d share it with you. As normal I tried to find a weird and wacky fact ….. The bulb and root are¬†used to¬†make medicine. People take American white¬†water lily¬†by mouth for diarrhoea and apply it to the body for vaginal conditions, diseases ofContinue reading “August 22nd – Water Lily”

August 21st – Nosey neighbours….

Obviously not our lovely human neighbours, but our bovine friends in the back field. They are very inquisitive, watching me move various items from the cabin into Eric, the new workshop. The cabin is nearly empty now, and almost ready for a good clean and maybe a coat of paint. It’s been an emotional experience,Continue reading “August 21st – Nosey neighbours….”

August 19th – Artwork

We decided to change a picture in the lounge with a nice Steven Brown canvas of Effilumps It’s probably not everyone’s taste but we like it. That’s the thing with art, it is subjective. No rights or wrongs. Many aspects of our lives are subjective, and I think it’s interesting to hear other people’s opinionContinue reading “August 19th – Artwork”
