Thoughts on a Saturday ( Chris' title)

 Saturday is a time for pottering. It is generally Chris' only " down time" as he generally works one day at the weekend catching up on his written work. Today he has been gardening. Cottage gardens can become untidy and overfill very quickly, and in order to keep the cut flowers coming ( note my attempt at a Homes& Gardens still life above), he has a great deal of " thinning out" to do
As you can see.....he seems to be enjoying himself



The run up to both the flower show and our open day has started
I will be holding out my begging bowl to all of my blog readers to see if anyone would again like to contribute to both.....
The flower show schedule can be viewed at

( I know all you arty types may love to try your hand against the best Wales can do)
And
I am taking in any crafty home made bits to sell on a stall on our open day
( all proceeds to St Michael's Church and  Marie Curie Cancer Care)

  1. I will try and pop up on the 1st of Sept to lend my support (it's in the wash right now). Those terriers are the bee's knees (was going to say the dog's doodahs but that is a very sore point at the minute, Boy the Bedlington's recent behaviour (peeing everywhere in my house proud sister's kitchen/utility room and chasing any scruffy bitch within a 3 mile radius) are putting his doodah's in jeopardy.

  3. That garden may need some filling out but it is indeed very beautiful and lush. I imagine it's a paradise for butterflies and birds!

  6. Don't tell me about cottage gardens John - it is only a fortnight since we thinned out, weeded, chopped back etc. I have been out this afternoon - there is couch grass everywhere, rose briars stretching on to the lawn. spirea which has outgrown itself - do I need to go on?

  7. Pottering? For a moment there I thought you were doing an article on Stoke-on-Trent.

    I like flower shows and I haven't graced Wales with a visit from me since December.

    A good weekend.

  10. When's the Open Day? I can send you stuff for your stall but my piece de resistance is still on the boil for the Flower Show so will send that later, ok?
    You're lucky you can sell your free range eggs. My boss bought another 3 chooks last week guess what? Yip,the situation is getting serious now. I do miss those golden yolks. Hope you're having a good weekend. x

  13. Nice to see that Chris is not afraid of having a shit in the flower bed. Must be a bit cramped indoors, with all those dogs.

  15. Is the last picture also attracting captions for a new competition?
    MEG I can't see a frigging thing!
    WILLIAM Don't worry, the bugger's surely going to get our faces trimmed one day! It's like looking through Edwina Currie's nether regions!

  16. I just watched the bulldog video myself. It's funny and cute, and I'm glad that they stopped filming when they did. No need to see everything ....

    Your garden is beautiful!

    Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, John.
    Glad you liked the picture, too. :-)

  20. Perhaps I can donate a piece of jewelry from my Sno of Sweden line to your cause for a raffle? You can look on my website to see if it would fit the occasion.
