Another busy month in the garden.....
|First crop of radishes|
|First small bunch of sweetpeas|
|I have enjoyed spending long days working on the wall|
and have made good use of the garden carrier made for me by Steve for my 60th birthday.
|I am hoping to make a seat in this bit of wall and grow some taller hedging plants on top to hide my short cut into the farmer's field.|
We have visited several NGS gardens. (Private gardens that open to raise money for charity.)
|This lovely garden on Exmoor belongs to a friend from the Bridge Club.|
I am also pleased to report that we have found a jolly good supplier of local fresh fish.
Dan the Fish Man who we met up with at Appledore Quayside and bought lobster and Turbot.
|My mother was very pleased with this little lobster.|
We have been for a couple of walks along the Tarka Trail
|Tarka Trail near Fremington|
|There was a very high tide in the estuary.|
I'm getting used to retirement, but don't want to get old too quickly. We used our old people's bus passes for the first time last week. Quite handy to travel to a nice French restaurant and not have to worry about driving home and the buses come every 10 minutes!
On Tuesdays I volunteer at the Old People's Home so that makes me feel a bit younger. I have been helping some of the residents grow salad crops in the garden and we have been making things for the summer fayre.
|I added some macramé bracelets to our stall and enjoyed meeting a few more locals.|
I am gradually settling into this new life and seem to be busy enough most of the time.
|Today I picked a slightly bigger bunch of sweet peas!|
