Licking Bosoms Into Shape


Early this morning, I have tidied bosoms in readiness for the open day
I will bag up potatoes to sell on the day, and should have spare cabbages and kale too
The only company I had was  radio 4 and the three geese, who waited patiently for spare sprout leaves which they took gently from my hand


It's a no news kind of day

  1. No news days are my favourites, for that means there is no disease, death, destruction or drama.
    I do wish I lived nearer to you, as I would be buying some of your lovely stuff.

  4. No news is good news, especially if it leads to a title like this one.

  5. Translation, please. I thought I knew what a bosom was. Apparently not. Whatever it is, I'm glad yours are tidy.

    1. 'Bosom' is his term of endearment for his allotment - I dare you to ask why he called it that!

    3. Thanks to you both for the enlightenment! Sorry to have missed that original post. I should be ashamed of myself... and I am. I'm hanging my bosoms in shame.

  6. Switch off that rubbish and get Radio 2 on - it's good on Sundays - apart from Elaine Page at 1.00pm - she gets on my one last nerve - but Johnnie Walker is good from 3.00pm onwards - though I was thinking of boycotting his programme today since he didn't turn up to the Festival last Wednesday - and I won free tickets to see him!
    ps Do we get prize cards this year again if we won anything at the Flower Show?

  7. now i am feeling stupid. somehow your blog switched to german on my computer. yesterday i wondered why you were posting in german. here again this morning it was in german. i found that strange and then looked at the translation bar and it was set on german. so weird. fortunately i speak german so it would have been ok but it was rather strange to have you suddenly go all german on me!!! i need coffee.

  9. No wonder you get loads of hits - even on a no 'news day' :-)

    You just gave me the best laugh of the day !!

  11. A lovely peaceful day.

  12. No news is good news as they say John. Gesse taking anything gently is news indeed - my two got so fierce that I had to give them away.

  13. I bet your view count went up today.

  17. You bosoms look beautiful, John. Wish I could come enjoy them in person, with all the rest of the village!

  20. That's some nice looking cabbage.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your "Bosoms" soil looks so fertile and clean - like crumbly cocoa.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sometimes those are the best kind of days.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your photos are beautiful !
    And these kind of days are the best !

    cheers, parsnip

  24. I wish I could pop by for a bag of spuds, if I had a car I probably would x

    ReplyDelete
  25. You are an amazingly hard worker, Mr. Gray (reading the comment & reply to Joanne about hand cutting the grass). Everything looks beautiful and well-cared for.

    And aren't your geese quite laid back, to be patiently waiting and gentle??

  26. Wish my garden was that weed free!

  27. We were away last week and a neighbour looked after my 'Bosoms'. Unfortunately, we forgot to tell him about 'Sam' the Scarecrow (who only scares the Bejasus out of unsuspecting adults). He screamed 'Sh*t' and the other neighbour was scared.... I have placated him today with some of our veggies and a plate of home made scones with cream and strawberries. Paul is still speaking to me!

  28. You have a great headline for a 'no news' kind of day John!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Bosoms is looking fab. Not a weed is sight! Like Cro, I'm wondering how do you find the time?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Like everyone else I am in awe at the weed free state of your bosoms. I am hanging my head in shame thinking of the thriving weeds in my garden.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a soothing entry. As befits a Sunday.

    I love your bosoms, John. Am totally disenchanted with myself this minute. Why don't I have bosoms and three charming geese? Those creamy cauliflowers to die for. Will pay you full whack, bring my own cumin seeds and feed you (and Chris if need be) the stir fry of all stir fries. Should you drown in a glut of courgettes (though not evidenced by your photo) look no further. Will pickle. Unless I stuff them. Or grate them into faux spaghetti.

  32. What sweet geese you have!
    Your bosoms look well licked. :)

  33. The cabbages are pretty and the geese are pretty. You could have included a picture of yourself. If I couldn't have said you are pretty, I could still have said "two out of three ain't bad." And who doesn't appreciate a quote from Meatloaf?

  34. Yet another titalating post title! XO

    ReplyDelete
  35. No news is good news, or so the saying goes. Nice of your geese to be considerate of you, John.
    Have a great week!

  36. Your energy amazes me and your bosoms are magnificent... have a super day.
    ( It's husband's 50th birthday today & I have nibbles for forty to prepare. Luckily I have some help & started cutting & dicing yesterday ! )

  37. Now that sounds like an idyllic type of day. Conjures up a feeling of peace and tranquillity. You have an amazing way with words to get that across so easily.
    If you adopt me I could add my fine pair of Bosoms to yours.
