Laid low for a few days with another bout of allergies. Sneezing and, well you don't want to know!

Not much to record.

Rapid planting of last of small plants in veg garden in eager anticipation of a few damp days this week to bed them in.

Out fruit trees planted in November are blossoming well. Loads of plums on the Avalon, gooseberries and blackcurrants are looking bountiful  and the Bramleys' are in beautiful bloom.

Spending day indoors to sniff and snuffle.  But I am not going to complain as our neighbours faces are grey and drawn as they lurch from one cancer crises to the next. Poor dears.


  1. I know just how you feel. I have discovered nasal washes and sprays which I do first thing in the morning and its helped tremendously. I try not to take the tablets as they floor me and make me depressed. But sometimes I have no option. I hope you feel better soon. ;0)

  2. The tablets are awful aren't they? I did another inhalation of Olbus oil in hot water which helps.

  3. allergies are horrible this time of year. Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

  4. Looking for a cure for dry lips. They are a bit cracked as if I have had flu! Apparently you can rub honey in 0- yummy.


Afternoon off

Left all the gardening undone yesterday and headed out  for the afternoon in our small boat.  Went up the River Wissey for about 4 miles. ...
