Thoughts on Covid – to mask or not to mask

Hi everyone. I have good news 😎. I am very happy to say I was WRONG! On 25 July I posted on The Waffle that we had 636 cases of Covid within the past 7 days in Windsor and Maidenhead. I was all gloom and doom as I fully expected the numbers to keep onContinue reading “Thoughts on Covid – to mask or not to mask”

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”

Garden pics (part 2)

Hi. I’m back. Two blogs in one day, that’s got to be a first. I just thought I’d show you the rest of my garden pics as, quite frankly, it beats doing the ironing. The duck curry is doing its thing in the oven for the next 1.5 hours…. The blue flowered plant above (sorryContinue reading “Garden pics (part 2)”

April Showers

Today is a day of April showers in Windsor. I’m cosy in the house and the rain is pattering on the windows. I like it. The rain is also watering in the planting in the garden I did earlier. I have planted some of each of these below. The carrot and sunflower seeds were aContinue reading “April Showers”

Sunset behind my favourite tree

Greetings Wafflers. How are you all doing? I’m managing to hold it all together and am having a relaxing weekend so far. This morning David was teaching a Zoom guitar lesson, so I decided to go on a little “coffee walk” as my sister described it. I walked, bought a takeaway cappuccino from Costa andContinue reading “Sunset behind my favourite tree”

The first daffodils

I’m cheating a little bit here, as these are not my daffodils, mine are still in bud. But I was very excited to spot these on my little walk today outside one of my neighbours’ houses. I also spotted some gorgeous snowdrops. I’m still very much into snowdrops. When I got home I also hadContinue reading “The first daffodils”

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!”

The best things in life are free

Hi everyone. As I recover from the news I’ve just watched of the government’s plans for the quite drastic 4 July lockdown easing, I want to talk about free (and nearly free) stuff today. Yes, I am going to stay in my little garden sanctuary world ignoring all our new freedoms and you’ll have toContinue reading “The best things in life are free”

Waffle garden tour

Hi, how are you all doing? I think for the first time today I don’t feel quite so bored. Writing “The Waffle”is always fun for me, hopefully as reading it is for you!? So, let’s start off with a socially distant tour of The Waffle estate. Everything is looking so lush and green. Honestly, ifContinue reading “Waffle garden tour”

Food glorious food

Greetings. I’ve had the day off work so today has been all about food and sunshine and I feel truly satisfied with that. I started off this morning with porridge in the garden. I like this sort and it’s really easy to do in the microwave. I have no idea what Acai is, but I’mContinue reading “Food glorious food”
