Relaxing Days

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

Buddha

Hello again and many have been awaiting updates of my artwork and allotments, so today I will show you how I spent time painting. Below is a metal water jug which I painted.

Water Jug

 

Reverse Side

Another small milk churn I painted for outdoor use as a planter is here.. This was painted Green the I used acrylics which  when dried have then had two top coats treated with Clear varnish to weather proof the tins.

 I am on the countdown now for the end of the month and it will seem very strange not working as I added up my work years to be 40.. So its time to enjoy and relax and pursue the hobbies I love which is painting and gardening.

You win some and you lose some.

Speaking of which  I will give you a picture update here now of the allotments and how things are coming along.. We have had some very heavy storms with flash flooding with heavy rains yesterday, and we have been told by the UK Met Office to brace ourselves for more storms and heavy down pours as the tail end of Hurricane Bertha will hit Sunday, today.

Due to the fluctuating weather of dry the wet, many of the allotment holders have suffered Potato Blight We spotted it as soon as it started to appear on the foliage so we cut the tops off to stop it spreading to the potatoes.The potatoes are fine underneath thank goodness.

Potatoes are still under here But the tops got potatoe blight so had to be cut off so as not to go back down and rot potatoes    Cabbages  Missed spaces due to cabbage root fly getting at them

The cabbages got hit too with root fly so you can see the missed spaces here under the netting.. The Cabbage White butterfly didn’t get to them but the Cabbage root fly did..  You win some and you lose some. That’s how it is when you grow your own.. We do not spray anything.. But next time we will remember to put a circle of card around the new plants as the fly lays its eggs at the base of the cabbage, the maggots then can’t  go down and eat the root as the eggs will often dry off and die.

  Onions and ShallotsThe onions and shallots have dried out beautifully and were left on top to finish off drying.. Unfortunately we missed not going down to the allotments for just one day, but someone obviously needed some extra onions that day and helped themselves to the biggest Onions across the rows…. ( I do not like to think of another allotmenteer  could do this, but we also had lots of garlic taken earlier this year. Some one likes their onions! Sad smile 

A success story though is our dwarf beans and runner beans.. loads have been frozen, and are now stored in the freezers. ( and yes we have a back up generator just in case of emergencies ) As we have had one or two unexpected power outages recently due to storms.. 

Drawf Beans        Runner Beans Had loads

The Sweet corn has gone to seed earlier than expected and many cobs are not fully mature, but having said that we have got quite a few large ones off already..Sweetcorn we won't have a much this year as going to seed It seems everything in the allotment this year is around a month early for harvesting. The Courgettes too have been abundant.

Courgettes have come out of our ears!

and we are just getting the Butternut squash forming.. This is a success too as we hadn’t tried growing this before..

Butternut squash just forming

We Raspberries now coming and doing wellalso have had lots of Raspberries too off the bushes and lots still to come on later flowering crops. So these have been made into delicious sweet deserts some  of these recipes I will add to my recipe pages later..  The Blackberries too have been yielding Pounds of fruit and I am keeping my eye out for the elderberries which are just about ready for turning on the trees.. I want to try my hand this year of making Elderberry Syrup which is good for keeping those colds and coughs at bay..

Gladioli

Above  are the Gladioli’s which I have grown to have as cut flowers  to display  indoors..

Well I hope you enjoyed my Relaxing Days, I started with the New Moon and my altering my Intentions and the Full Super Moon is going to be a super one too, so Enjoy! Click the links to find our more..

    your art is full of nature, it seems it could be a real flower leaning on one of your pitchers 🙂
    Just Beautiful is your special gift…I do envy it 🙂
    wandering with your words, I am always amazed when someone is doing what they love, that feels right, it is work of the soul I think….even you get tired from the work in the gardens it is a good tired knowing a good day was done with the intentions of more good…
    I like that….
    I am staying at my daughters till Monday evening…I have enjoyed the quiet with just her Hannah( her wonderful companion, though she misses her family, she was so sad the first day, she just laid at the door looking to see if they came home)
    this morning we have been outside enjoying the sunrise…reading, alternating quilting…I could live high in the mountains with no civilization around… 🙂
    your energy is calmer than usual to me…deep thoughts of tomorrow I think…
    Wonderful post My Friend…( the onions will not taste good for whomever decided it was okay to just take them…(they will reap what the sow I believe)
    Take Care….You Matter….

      Dear, dear Maryrose, I am happy you are enjoying a peaceful Weekend at your daughters.. With Hannah a four legged friend.. I so agree about gardening being a sort of contented tired.. Some days when I have been to work for 8 hours I am home at 3 30pm, I have a drink and then off I go to the allotments to weed until 5.. It gives great satisfaction..

      The onions well, we think we know the culprit, but you can never be sure. So we will not point fingers..

      The allotments are open but we all have a gate lock to the entire allotments.. All I can say, they must have needed them more than we…I wouldn’t have minded if they had helped themselves to the odd few of the smaller ones.. But they took a huge amount of some the size of a small melons.. We we so proud of those Bigger onions… Arrgh well.. no use blubbering over onions! LOL… I did tell hubby to put in the shed to dry off, due to the weather.. Maybe he will listen next year 🙂 ,,

      I am happy you can detect a change in my energy. there is.. And I am embracing change, and moving with the flow of it.. Reading the links to the Super moon link I put up, it seems I must be doing something right! 🙂

      Enjoy your Mountain air Maryrose and speak to you very soon.. 🙂 .xx Love Sue

    Sounds like it was a bit of a tough summer for growing. It was here as well. Most days of july and now August have been very cool and nights in the low 50’s! Unheard of…The garden really wanted the heat to get growing but never really got it. I am looking at my first yellow squash of the season if you can believe that! But the dark ones still aren’t winning…You’d think they would get bored with trying but they don’t. They’ve met their match this time though. The light is very powerful now. So glad you are doing well and yes, I’m counting down the days with you 🙂 Much love to you and btw, your artwork is beautiful…..VK

    To this phenomena “rain” to which you speak, such a problem to have. Where we live in the New Mexico High Desert, we are painfully beyond parched. While hues of brown make for beautiful panoramas, they do little to nourish nature’s beauty and keep our water tables from evaporating.

    Still, we try to make the best of what we’re given. 🙂

    I really love the quote by Buddha, and I just love everything about that philosophy. I wonder if I’ll ever become a practicing Buddhist, but I just don’t know as of now since I’ve not devoted myself to any religion at all (although I was baptised Catholic), I’ve not really practiced a religion, and I don’t know how I feel about worshipping a God, though I worship Mother Nature, I don’t know about the “God” part. I don’t know that I’m an atheist either, so I suppose only time will tell. I never asked you if you were religious in that sense. I do believe there are spiritual masters and all religions are of equal value. I love the Gladiolas and your painted jugs. I’m sorry for some of your crop losses.

      My father was an atheist and I know he missed out on spiritual growth. (Spiritual growth as in meaning “personal, emotional growth”). My father was a scholar and of all the arguments scholars have against God, the biggest one is that of redemption. Many scholars who cannot believe in God but only trust the empirical methods of science claim that only Humans are responsible for what they’ve done, so they cannot “succumb” to God for “forgiveness” because they must respond for their own actions, not God. Yet, spiritual growth according to the Buddha, has to do with “mindfulness” and how much you can develop this skill in a whole lifetime. Whether atheists miss out on “spiritual growth”, I can’t really say.

We are also looking at ways to earn from our talents in the future rather than outside employment, doing what we love so well that others love it too.

    Your garden looks wonderful but yes, there are always great harvests coupled with disappointments. Mother Nature will do her own thing regardless of our plans..and I quite like that despite the frustrations 🙂

      That’s so true Wendy.. about Mother Nature.. but that as you say adds to the seasons never being the same.. And each year our harvests surprise in one way or another We are thrilled with our fruit, this year, raspberries and blackberries, and the Brussels look to be going well too where as last year they were eaten alive by caterpillars .. So all in all we have done well..

    My dad always use to plant onions between carrots and cabbages as the flies from each other didn’t like each other and so went somewhere else for dinner. Many years ago we had a steep garden slope that most neighbours either left to weeds or cleared and mowed but we dug terraces into it and planted vegetables. Then one night it rained and rained and rained and the following morning it appeared that most of the produce had been washed to the bottom of the slope and we though everything was dead and decided to walk away and try again the following year. But out of the water clogged soil some weeks later we noticed green shoots, and although much did not survive we did get some potatoes and root veg and peas and beans. As for others taking what you have grown it is a little mean. I like to presume that they need it more than i do and send them a blessing as well.

      Yes the onion Thief must have needed them more than we.. I remember when my son who was only 18 at the time in his pride and joy first banger of a car.. Who had fitted out a nice little radio cassette player in it.. Had his car broken into one night as we had all gone to the cinema and parked in the parking lot there.. We came back to the car with a police sticker aware on the windscreen as someone had smashed his side window and took his radio… I was gutted for him.. But he just turned around and said.. ” Well mum, they must been in more desperate need than I “… I was so proud of him that day… And what’s an onion or two among ‘Friends’ lol.. 😀

    The reds and greens on the churn go well together, don’t they? The flowers really stand out. And so do your red Gladis as well, for that matter!
    Keep enjoying your creative days, Sue. I’m trying not to be envious (but I am!) 😉

      Yes I loved the poppies on the green.. and I have had my mouse bucket out all Summer in the heat and Sun and the colours beneath the varnish have not faded so I can definitely recommend them being weather proof, And believe me when its rained its rained buckets too 🙂

      Thank you for your compliments Tom 🙂

    Really enjoyed your relaxing days post, Sue, of which you will soon have many more! You are talented in so many ways. And how right you are…you win some and you lose some. It all seems to balance out in the end though. 🙂 xoxo

    Enjoyed that update on your allotment Sue, Ana plants a certain flower around our green vegetables, it keeps the white butterfly away, cant remember what its called.
    You have had a few failures this season by the look of it, but overall Sue, your allotment is a success, you have had a lot of pleasure and relaxation with your piece of mother natures earth.
    Love the milk churn.
    Cheers

      Its probably Marigolds Emu.. as we plant them and its helped a bit.. Yes a few but various successes we didn’t expect so can no grumble.. you win some and lose some to Mother Nature.. But she usually balances things out.. we are happy. 🙂
