It is almost a year since we moved to Devon and this will be my final blog post for the time being.
Summer has been fun. We have enjoyed having a succession of visitors. I have relearnt how to bake scones and have provided a few Devonshire cream teas!
|Ready for visitors!|
In my last post (June 2016) I showed my first pickings from the garden. Two bunches of sweetpeas and a small bunch of radishes.
The garden has provided continuing produce and entertainment through the summer months.
|A good supply of runner beans|
|Plenty of radishes|
|A good crop of chillis|
|I picked sweetpeas for 3 months|
|Paul has been building a rockery for his modern miniature daffodils and other alpines|
We have enjoyed using the firepit Paul gave me for Christmas.
|Fish and chips in the garden with Sam|
|Discussing the meaning of life etc. with Mark|
I have also had time to track down local sea food
|Tasty Clovelly lobster!|
And of course play Pokémon Go....
|I am level 21 now and have 76 Pokémon in my pokedex!|
But now Summer is coming to an end along with my first year in Devon. I think I am gradually adjusting to retirement. My plan for the coming year is to avoid too much planning...
|Final bunch of sweetpeas for this year.|
I suppose I could do a Pokémon Go blog....
|I caught this one in the van|
What a happy retirement...
