Indian Summer

Glorious sunshine, not a cloud in the sky! A good chance to have a look at what's happening in the garden.
Most of the vegetable patch is long over, but it is still home to a bumper patch of rainbow chard and a thriving row of chives. I planted calendula and nasturtium seeds in the little strip of soil between the veg bed and the path and have been pleased with the colourful display.
I have had masses and masses of calendula flowers for making oils, salves and tincture and drying for teas and the more you cut it the more it comes again (everything in my part of the garden has to be useful as well as beautiful and beautiful as well as useful, if you see what I mean!)

Hi Hedgewitch,

I am thrilled to see you posting again and hey you've moved.
I know Colchester.....I spent many weeks in the Essex countryside, staying with Nannie and Gramps.
I love the area......

I have another blog which I tend to use more....I would be more than happy to see you there.

You will not believe this but I actually thought about you the other day, and wondered how life was treating you.

Welcome back my friend.......
