Making, baking, collecting, eating, drinking & mainly growing - 'You must be interested in the land. Never hesitate to ask advice from anyone who is a better gardener than you. There is no mystery about gardening, it is just common sense'. ( Sound advice from my granddad)

Five on Friday
Five musings from my week -
Upon watering the potted fruit trees this morning I thought I spotted a strange bird at the feeder station. It was strange all right! Once I had fully opened my eyes I realised it was a coconut half.
We spotted these the other day in the garden, spider nests, spider egg cases? Whatever, they are full of teeny tiny baby spiders. I've spotted some hatching.
My granny stripe blanket has been relegated to the back of the small sofa for the summer. You know just to keep the sofa cosy during the night. I like the look of it there so when time allows I shall be making a granny square blanket for the back of the other sofa. Mike understandably is thrilled by this plan, I heard him muttering the other day about where it all went wrong!
The sweet cherry tree is loaded with cherry's this year, the sour one is too for that matter. The question is How many will the blackbirds leave for me this year? A strong guess is 0!
I think these are Alpacas, Mike could imitate them quite well so they came over for a closer look. The thought of attaching an extension cable to Mikes hair trimmer thing did cross my mind (more than once)
