Once there would have been enough water running underneath to turn a wheel here, it would have been a busy place.
Nearby is the village phone-box. No longer in use as a phone box it has become an information point for the 6 mile village cycle ride loop and has this wonderful stained glass. It now also contains a USB point for people to charge mobile phones.
Close by is this magnificent Magnolia - just coming into flower
On the way home I took a photo of the Horse Chestnut with leaves just opening and 'candles' just appearing, it was very windy so a bit of a blurry photo.
But look at my cucumber plants. That B***** cat managed to pick her way over other things on the table in the conservatory to take some bites out of the leaves.......every year she does this, every year I think I've stopped her getting anywhere near them. It's only the cucumber plants and only when they are small and hopefully they'll recover.
This week I'm so grateful for
- Social media to see photos of my grandchildren keeping busy
- Ian, the boiler man who came quickly to sort my boiler when it started to smell
- A garden to grow things
- The sunshine this last week
Why does nobody tell you that when you have children you carry on worrying about them whatever age they are?
