Operation Plot Taming

April 26, 2012 at 9:19 pm 6 comments

So it’s old news now but as planned my folks came over just before Easter and we went to work at the allotment. George took a saw to the hawthorn tree and Dad wrestled with the spiky branches.  
Mum and I were on weeding duties until E woke and needed attending to so I got off lightly really! What sterling workers 😮

oh, chit … again plot taming … on hold!

    I’ve been laid up with a broken toe for the last four weeks, but I managed to sow some brassicas, plant some redcurrant bushes, prune the lemon verbena bushes and prune my Tradescantia houseplant before it happened!

    D has been sowing seeds for me (nasturtiums, marigolds, further brassicas) and showing me the progress (I may just have more capers than I bargained for this year!) but I miss getting my hands in the dirt.

      ouch, poor you. Goodness though, what feats you’d achieve if you were up and about judging by what you’ve managed hopping on one foot!
      Husbands are wonderful garden helpers but it’s not the same watching someone else do it (and G doesn’t always appreciate the ‘directing’ I offer sometimes!)

    Wow, looks like you’ve been hard at work! Very impressive…

      thank you, a great team effort :o) Sadly I suspect the weeds have grown back again by now!

    Many hands make light work …. it looks like you managed to uncover some fabulous soil. 🙂

    I hope you got G a power saw for Father’s Day. 😉

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
