Laburnum On Fire

I was late cooking supper tonight.
In true a Rachel style I'll tell you what I cooked
Lamb, new potatoes in a tad of butter and green veg.
The leader of the male voice choir had rung earlier. He had posted the posters of the village concert  through our letter box and had been embroiled in a tug of war with William after doing so.
He had left the tooth marked posters by the front door after a short battle and had rung me to see if I could display them on the village notice boards .
A few people ask me such favours as I have an allen key which the handiman than put in the notice boards gave me just because I lived nearby!




Anyhow Winnie , Albert and I took the slightly battered posters up to the main road and after hanging them, Albert and I took ourselves off to the churchyard to look at the laburnum tree which had burst into a mass of gold in the setting sun.
Winnie stamped her fat feet by the lychGate in impatience as we did so


The golden laburnum

  4. They are beautiful when they are out John I agree but, like lilac, for the rest of the year they are really nothing to write home about.

    1. Beautiful.. but a bit worried for Jules' Lily as all parts of Laburnum is poisionous.

  15. Beautiful tree. Does Winnie not like the churchyard?

  16. There has been more than one document leave our house with tooth marks in it :)

    I don't mind that many shrubs and trees have their blossoms for only a short while, because they are so glorious for that time.

  17. That is a beautiful tree. I am sure the photo didn't do it justice gleaming in the sun. Why wouldn't Winnie go with you and Albert? On another note...I keep seeing hints of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) leaving the Dead after season 9. Have you heard any rumors?

  23. Will you and Chris be going to The Quiz Night at "The Crown" next Monday night? Having a professor on one's team should guarantee victory and you will be able to cover all the questions on poultry, dogs, home baking, "Car Share", and "The Walking Dead".
