A #SixonSaturday of Few Words
Garden twine washed, dried, not folded. If there's no rest for the wicked, what's the state of the average gardener's soul? This week's seen Freecycling of surplus plants, repotting tenders whose roots slithered into view, training roses & peas to cherish t...

Superfluous Gardener
How we spent our week. What a week of heat & sun.  As I slowly melted, muttering about it being hotter'n the American south, some kind family member translated the temperature into Fahrenheit. 67 degrees.  I'd have a light sweater on at home. In addition to...

Signs of Life - Six on Saturday
Tree of Life applique. Last week, the rain left long enough for us to play catch-up in the garden. This week it's a day of rain, a day of fog, another of rain, nary a blue sky. While there's no sun, there are signs of life. Sometimes signs where it seemed n...

Time for another Six on Saturday.  For me, that means six things in the garden that grabbed my attention sometime during the week, not necessarily on Saturday. For the proper way to do Six, run over to  The Propagator who not only has guidelines, but links ...

Crazy Rains
Flooded stepping stone. We're at it again, that impossible Six on Saturday challenge to share six & only six things of interest in the garden. When last we met, I'd nearly completed my potting shed, & the missing parts to my storage shed had finally arrived...

Groundwork
A single cyclamen. Here it is, our weekly #SixonSaturday happening, that day when bloggers around the world share six things from their garden - a job, a new bud, a pest, a plan.  A few weeks ago, we moved house.  Last time you saw me, I'd just climbed out ...

Little Boxes Made of Ticky Tacky
Dignity restored. It's been a fortnight since the Beast from the East swept in during our Great Migration. As with every move, something vital isn't in the box I thought it was, my favourite ( insert household item ) doesn't fit, & there's a list of nigglin...

Beastly
Mulch underlay or recycling . . .  Ah, the sound of packing tape ripped from cardboard.  The essential trawl of local take-away options.  Mlle DoodleFace doing zoomies with a gigantic poster tube in her mouth while Mizzy BunnyButt climbs a Seuss-ian stack o...
