firstly I need to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you for the super warm welcome back. Your comments really made me smile and reminded me what a great place blogland is.
Look! I'm even having further success with a clematis ....maybe I'm not the clematis murderer that I once was.
At the top of the garden we now have a completed workshop ( I shared the beginnings of this project HERE almost 2 years ago ). It may have taken an age to finish and I did find the process quiet stressful....and expensive! but It's turned out great so I am glad we committed to this project now.
It does make the garden smaller, but not by that much, and I'm happy with the flower beds hubby and eldest built me to help it blend in a bit.
And the rustic steps.
I filled the bed with home grown Zinnias and Dahlias.
I think it's all looking at it's best right now.
In the kitchen I'm still making efforts to reduce plastic waste. Though I can't afford all of our milk in glass.
And I'm trying to eat locally and seasonally. This was cheese and potato pie and roasted veg using up potatoes and tomatoes from a friends allotment.
There's free food in the hedgerows right now too.
These pictures are from a favourite circuit of about 3 miles. It takes me just over an hour and I find that the perfect length for a daily walk.
There aren't any steep hills, but there are some steps.
Here we are at the little churchyard again. It's looking especially lovely in the afternoon sun.
I liked the shadows here.
I'm still doing my walk 1000 mile challenge (this is the 4th consecutive year I think...or maybe it's the 5th) at the moment it's going well and I'm a few miles ahead of where I need to be at this point in the year.
There's a hint of Autumn out there and that's fine by me.
September is hubby's birthday month, do you like my eco friendly gift wrap? Ha, a lot of effort went into that :0)
I do hope you have enjoyed this simple catch up post.
Chat again soon.
