A "Lovely Show"


I offered up 2 month's free eggs as one of the prozes of the Trelawnyd Carnival Raffle, so I was up early this morning to deliver this week's ration to the winner, who, by sod's law, has more poultry than I have.
Go figure that one!
Anyhow, as I was walking through the village, I noticed that the Conservation group had been hard at work planting out the flower beds outside the pensioner bungalows and on the small village "green"
It is, what old ladies from all corners of this sceptred Isle, would refer to as a "lovely show"
so I thought I would take a few photos of the new floral displays in situ, so to speak.
Chris and I keep meaning to help out with the conservation group volunteers, for it is their hard work which puts the "icing on the village cake "
I just hope that we eventually get a little sunshine soon.....the newly planted out flowers  and the veg in "my bosoms" despirately need it.

The Village green in dire need of some real sun
Having that all this..... as William and I made our way home past the parents dropping their kids off at the village school.....I had to sigh to myself, as yet again it started to rain

  1. We dog owners were just saying this morning, as we waded through the long wet grass and mud, that we could count on one hand, the number of walks we have done without wellies this summer!

  2. Of course the winner has all kinds of poultry, Murphy's Law, is it not? LOL I hear you about the rain, John, that 3 days of it continuous a couple of weeks back almost killed me in, out and about throughout the days with our "Checkerboard Aussies" ... nasty on the aches & pains, never mind the wet feet and all other ! Love the brightness of the flower beds.

  3. Surely July will be better and we can forget the unsettled and often rainy weather of June. My vegetables are crying out for warmth and sunshine but at least I haven't had to water them for a while.

  4. The flowers are wonderful, the rain is challenging everywhere...

  5. Amazing how a flower 'show' will perk things up! Now for some sun! Good luck!

  6. Oh yes, a lovely show. It makes such a difference when people have real pride in their neighbourhood and want everything to look its best.

  7. Well, at least you don't have to go out and water the gardens but a little sun would be nice once in a while.

  8. Oh, you poor people with all that rain. It might be a good time to go to a sunny, warm island to get away from it all.

  9. I'd better not mention our weather for fear of extreme envy.

    Is the raffle winner selling your eggs as his own? My gals are suffering a bit from the heat (damn, I've gone and said it again).

  10. I'll do my best to send you some of our heat...we have it in spades with plenty left over.

  11. Your village must have more free range eggs kicking about than anywhere else in Wales!

  12. Wish we could average this out. Over on this side of the pond we are sere and fried to a crisp. Crops are dying in fields. Gardeners are already giving up for this year...sad. I could use some cool and damp, I'm melting into my shoes! (Kentucky, U.S.A.) Don't know which is worse.

  13. We are getting loads of rain this week as well. I had high hopes of outfitting the boat this week, but when i'm done work, it rains. Yes, i can outfit in the rain, but it's easier to do it in dryer weather.

    Of course, the sun is peeking out now, that i've taken a few minutes break from work to read your blog. when i try for an hour later on today for boat stuff, i'm sure the grey clouds will come rushing back.

  14. Such a quaint and well-loved village, the flower beds are colorful as a box of crayons...
    We'll take all the rain you can send this way, we are officially at drought stage :(

  16. There's always weather, whether or not. I'm getting old--that's what all the old people used to say.

  17. It's raining here like a cow pissing on a flat rock.

  18. With my sloppy reading John, I read 'conservation' as 'conservative' and thought what a apolitical village it must be!

    I went to Ripon this morning and went through pouring rain and brilliant sunshine several times during the twenty odd miles.

  19. I can't remember the last dry, sunny day we've had here in the Pacific Northwest. True, I don't have to water the garden, but my poor veggies are starving for sunshine.

  20. Sheesh, into each life some rain must fall, eh? Too bad we can't have it spread around more equitably. It's going to be 102 degrees here from Friday until Sunday, and we've had nary a drop of rain for weeks. Our poor garden is aching for a good soaking. Only plus side is the grass sure doesn't need mowing.

  21. I'm surprised the flower beds didn't contain any petunias. That is the first choice for annuals in my neck of the woods!

  22. So that's where all the wet is!Here we are hoping Tropical Storm Debbie would have visited us instead of Florida.

    So wonderful that the villagers take such pride in the village and giving the pensioners flower beds to brighten their yards.

  23. Well, weather aside, it all makes me want to rush over and settle in the village so I can be a pensioner there.

  24. Those poor wee tagetes aren't going to thrive in your current weather conditions. Good job no one planted petunias. They sulk in rainy overcast conditions. But well done to the gardeners.

  25. Everything looks green. And how great of them to plant the lovely flowers.

    Hope you do get some sun though. Will brighten everyone's spirits.
    Have a good night and a wonderful day tomorrow, John.

  26. rest assured our land would not be half as green and half as pleasant without all this rain.... I know we don't need it all at once.... nor do we particularly need it all in the summer, but it's good for slugs..... snails..... and everything else that will eat the new growth it brings!!

  27. What lovely photos! I live in a very dry area and would love to see that much green and that much vegetation.
