More Chelsea Physic Garden…

Hi. As promised I’m back with the rest of the Chelsea Physic Garden pics.. They have a male and a female ginkgo tree, one either side of the path. Who knew that ginkgoes are either male or female… ? I didn’t. Now don’t ask me which this one below is!? It’s gorgeous whichever it is.Continue reading “More Chelsea Physic Garden…”

Chelsea Physic Garden

Hi. This is part 2 of my day trip to Chelsea last Friday. I had lunch at Chelsea Physic Garden with my old school friend, Sarah (Sarah, of course you’re not old, but school was a loooooong time ago!). We went to school together in Putney… from the age of 8 to 18. Chelsea PhysicContinue reading “Chelsea Physic Garden”

Brimstone moth and other important matters

Hello world. This lovely Brimstone moth visited our house recently. It was on the floor downstairs, then upstairs on a window ledge and then on the stairs’ carpet for a couple of days. We were careful not to step on him and I called him “Mr Brimstone” which hopefully he found quite respectful! He hasContinue reading “Brimstone moth and other important matters”

Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River

Hi. David and I usually just call this walk “the birds” as there are some bird hides along the walk and usually lots of birds to see. Today we saw a few Canada geese, one cormorant, one grebe, we heard some chirping from an unknown species in the rushes, but didn’t spot as many birdsContinue reading “Today’s walk at Dorney Wetlands by the Jubilee River”

The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year

Firstly I’d like to say I really ❤️ my aircon. So lovely. Cool. Refreshing. I’m lying on the bed after a beautiful stroll around The Savill Garden today. It was hot at The Savill Garden, but quite shady along many of the paths. I seem to be going back to this place every month atContinue reading “The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year”

The house leek is flowering

Hi there. I have been in a low mood on and off all day, for no particular reason. What a waste of a day off, this has annoyed me that I couldn’t snap out of it. I was cheered up by the sight of our house leek flowering for the first time. We had noContinue reading “The house leek is flowering”

May tour of The Waffle garden

Hi guys. While I’m waiting for my garden photos to download, let’s talk about food, for a change! A couple of nights ago I made this chicken laksa. Highly recommended. I got the recipe from the Good Housekeeping Express cookbook, which is one of my favourite cookbooks. I think I used a bit more chickenContinue reading “May tour of The Waffle garden”

The rhubarb is coming!

I’ve just had a saunter around the estate, well more of a hobble, but I am walking a little better this afternoon. At last! I still don’t think I’ll be up to going out for a walk for a while. It’s so boring being injured. Enough of my grumpiness! The garden is looking a littleContinue reading “The rhubarb is coming!”
