… gorblimey.
How can I pick just one G today when they’re all so gorgeous?

G is for … George, giraffes, garden peas and growing veg.

    Very good Nic! I was wondering what G would be for, I thought maybe greens but you’re far too imaginative for that! Really enjoying this by the way, catching up properly now! x

    me of course!

    I agree with George, as I’ve got one of those too! I’ve been inspired by your blog to start my own….


    and wondered if you’d mind if I did the alphabet thingy too. It’s fine if not, but I love the idea. Made your damson chutney – smelt fab, but not tasted it yet and I’m not a chutney fan. I made it to sell for charity.

    Jas – thanks lovely, always special to receive your comments and know that our friends living far away are sort of nearby none the less.

    G – of course!

    Lynne – good for you, you’ll not be short of inspiration for your posts judging by where you live now and how you spend your time. And husbands called George are very useful for weaving stories (and knowing you have one dedicated reader at least :o)

    Definitely join in the August Alphabet – it’ll be a great way to get into a rhythm with your blogging. Today is H so you could do a combined post for A-G. Check out Chiots Run where the original challenge was posted to see different ways that people are approaching it. And if you let Susy know she’ll had your name to the blogroll of participants. Have fun!

    Looks like you have a glut of ‘G’s!

    • 6. Nip it in the bud  |  August 10, 2011 at 12:44 pm

      a glut I shall never tire of or give away Mal :o)

    Lovely photos! – where do you keep the giraffes by the way ? πŸ˜›

    Gorgeous Gs. Mind teh Giraffes don’t eat you out of home grown veg…

    Joanna – wouldn’t that be fab to live where giraffes could wander up to your veranda to inspect your breakfast! These giraffes are at Cotswold Wildlife Park which is our favourite local place to go and get our big animals fix.

    Janet – thanks, I’d happily share though :o)

    glad you got in some gorgeous green too!

  • 11. Nip it in the bud  |  August 17, 2011 at 5:13 am

    I think I know what you’re G’s would have been {wink}

  • 12. fiona mayhem  |  August 30, 2011 at 10:17 am

    Growing! Of course!

    I will share this one, although my neighbours think I am mad for growing my own – maybe you will realise why when you see my H…

    I love your beautiful pictures in this post, Nic.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #cookingwithkidsisfun #avocadoslicer #steeljiggers #stainlesssteeltongs #icecreamscoop #bakersdustingwand  #oxouk E's birthday is about 3 weeks after Christmas so I always start thinking about his celebrations around this time.  We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘ - #regrann
