Welcome to family, friends and visitors. Here you will find interesting (hopefully) pictures of my part of the world, news of our household and probably, long ramblings about anything that catches my interest.

It's been overcast all day and by the time I took these photos early in the afternoon, the clouds were about down to ground level. 
I did a little gardening in the morning. Once again I was sitting on the floor this time wielding a hand moss-rake. Moss is taking over a lot of the garden and I should have sorted out the bit of grass by the scree garden last year but didn't. There are also some thistles and dandelions to be grubbed out there but what I hadn't counted on was a nasty rough grass that it taking over as well. I tried prising some out but it has a network of roots in the soil which is difficult to remove. I even tried turning over a section of the lawn to pull the brown roots out from underneath but that didn't work. I think the only way to deal with it would be to remove all the soil and replace it with new turf. That I'm not going to do so I shall have to try and ignore it as I sit there raking out the thick moss. The bit of lawn I did now looks like a battle zone. Once I've cleared the moss and weeds Peter can mow it before I sprinkle grass seed over the worse bits. In the afternoon I wrapped up well for some quiet moss picking with my tweezers but it was actually raining so I had to admit defeat and stay indoors. I did sort out a box of ceramics (plates and bowls) most of which can go to the charity shops and be of benefit to others. What with my thrice daily exercises, guitar practice - I've now progressed to 5 strings! and writing up my journal it is hard to find time to fit everything in. Maybe that's got something to do with my very leisurely start to each day.
