Bilbo is coming to Gloucester!

September 3, 2009 at 8:28 am 4 comments

Bilbo’s his name, travelling’s his game and Gloucester has been chosen for the next leg of his world tour.  He’s due to arrive any day now so come back next week to see what he gets up to during his stay.  The Dirt Princess is keeping track of all the other places he’s visited since setting out from her garden in Alabama in April.

*newsflash*  Bilbo’s arrived safe and sound and bearing gifts from the lovely Jayne at The View from Bag End Bilbo on the doorstep

    Enjoy your stay in Gloucester, Bilbo. It looks like he has developed a taste for English beer while he’s been here. As you are towards the West country there, perhaps he might discover some strong scrumpy!

    The golden one is with you now, I hope he enjoys his time with you!

    Glad he has arrived safely. Enjoy your luggage tag, it looks very at home attached to your suitcase {grin}

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
