So here I am again clicking away at the keyboard. Does he not realise I have other VERY IMPORTANT things to do?


  • THE WEEKLY SHOP - Aaaaargh
  • THE LAUNDRY - Double aaaaargh
  • MENDING - yuck!
  • Trying out my SUPER DUPER new camera - Yippee
  • Scrapbooking - Mmmmm
  • Card making - MUSTN'T forget!
  • Maintaining my other two Blogs - I must be mad

and that's without opening the back door and stepping out into that other wonderful world of mine for some touchy-feely-freshy-greeny-dirt-under-the-fingernails-honest-to-goodness-no-body-bothers-me, ME TIME communing with MY GARDEN where there are many, many jobs to be done.

So why am I doing it?

Mr M is becoming what we call Chez Moonshine A NAG FEST (Imagine bolts of lighting, crashes of thunder - dum, dum dummmmm) about me keeping a photo record of our garden so we know what's where, when we have gaps in the planting, colours that work together etc, etc, etc. Of course I always have a million and one other things to do so I'm really bad at going out there and taking the necessary pics. Soooo - he, with the cunning of Mr Fox, having noticed how much I'm enjoying playing on my other Blogs (see side bar for details), suggested that I should "Do a Blog about the garden" and I, like the gullible fool that I am, took the bait and the rest, as they don't quite say, will be history.

So, please come in to the garden, look around and enjoy...

Look, I mowed the lawn

These are just some of the views in our really quite small garden, I'll show you more as we go along - and now I've got my SUPER DUPER new camera be prepared for some SUPER DUPER close-ups and other fancy photowork!

I really should go and do some of those VERY IMPORTANT things, although the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I can hear that Mr M has put the kettle on... Aaah - just time for a nice cup of tea in the garden ...

A garden isn’t meant to be useful. It’s for joy.

  1. What a lovely garden you have. Very peaceful for sitting and contemplating whatever you want to contemplate. Looking forward to seeing some fantastic pics. Will your pseudonym be Mrs. Baily?
