Anyone for Tennis?

Hello beautiful people, it has been a while since I did an update on my blog.. Summer is speeding by and I am making the most of these wonderful Sunny Days here in the UK..  Life is for living, and enjoying and that is exactly what I have been doing.. Spending time with family, and enjoying several birthday celebrations, and of course the allotments have been getting lots of attention with picking berries, and preparing produce for the freezer..

I also started a knitting project too, which has stopped my hands from pounding the keyboard of an evening. A project in progress that has the back and one front completed..

Tennis too has been on the agenda, and no, I am not that sprightly, lol, but may invest in a swing ball for the lawn, as I know one little lady who will enjoy the game with me..  But Wimbledon is on for another week, and you will find me most afternoons watching Tennis this next week, as I root for my favourite Tennis Stars.  So I have been up extra early and down the gardens before it warms up and gets too hot to work.

So as I share lots of photo’s over on my gardening blog on the progress on the allotments.. For a change, I will share a little of the allotments here with you.

 

Enjoy, and I will I hope gradually work my way down the reader and find you.

And remember to love, laugh, and BE Happy..

See you Soon!

Fun and Laughter the Best Medicine.

Easter has been both Busy and Fun..  It started out on on Good Friday with lots of fun with our Granddaughter taking her for a bike ride and then on to Creswell Crags ” A fascinating place with excavated from the caves show how the area witnessed dramatic changes in climate at the edge of the northern ice sheets and was populated by Ice Age animals such as hyenas, mammoths, woolly rhinoceros, and migrating herds of reindeer, horse and bison.”

 

Lots of Gardening has been done too..And a corner of the Home Garden is looking colourful at the moment with the wallflowers out and the bulbs.. 

And yes.. The Allotments too have had lots of Tender Loving Care which is why not as much time has been spend here in blog land.. As much as I wish I could split my time in two..

More Laughter and Pictures of me in my Gardening gear  you can find if you click the above photo

Have a wonderful Weekend.. And I hope to get around to visit more whom I have not had chance yet to catch up with.. 

Love and Blessings.

A Weekend in Healing Earth

Hello  my lovely friends.. This is the time of year that I spend more of my time getting my fingernails dirty in our Earth Mothers rich soil.  Now the milder and better weather is here, I am to be found more in my Allotments than I am here within the blogsphere of WordPress..

So I hope you will all have patience if I take more time visiting or replying to your most welcome comments..

To see what we have been doing the last couple of days.. There are some pictures within my  Garden Blog Link 

Have a Wonderful Sunday and a Beautiful Week

How does your Garden Grow?

Just wanted to update you how things in the garden are progressing, some days I have been so tired I have slept in the afternoons, especially in this heat we are not used to this time of year.. It’s definitely growing weather for weeds which have invaded the garden along with aphids, white fly, and a bug which flew in from Europe which is spreading fast throughout the UK.  To view all the news and pictures  please click the link HERE   On my garden blog.

 

 

Harvesting Goodness

Harvest time is upon us as we reap from our gardens what we have sown. It’s wonderful to see something that you planted from a tiny seed that grows and matures to a full-grown crop.

And haven’t you ever just stopped to think for a moment about those seeds. Just how miraculous they are. Each seed so tiny, yet they know exactly how to grow. Each tiny cell splitting off to become a leaf, petal or fruit. Just as our human cells know which cells form toes and teeth.

Each plant perhaps relying on natures helping hand as the bees pollinate creating new seeds for next year’s seasons

I have so enjoyed this Summer. It started out life here in the UK as being one of the wettest June’s for a long while. It was very cool to start with. Yet despite the cold start Nature catches up. And even though our sweetcorn took 3 attempts to sow this year it too caught up and now we are harvesting the ripe corn cobs

Life is a little like planting. We get to harvest what we have sown. 

I came across a wonderful post from Erika today whose own post was about the seeds we sow in Life.. in her post here entitled  The Challenge of Growth 

How true too about those seeds as Erika  describes them to break down and collapse before they open and bring forth their new growth. I invite you to go read her excellent thoughts on how we ourselves grow through our challenges.

Corn gone to seed Not all can mature perfectly.

As I view the world today I see many of our old ways now collapsing, they have to if we are to change.

Everything comes in cycles, Day follows Night, Seasons Change. We look back through history and see how our world has gone through its different ages. It seems we are now in the technological age. One at the moment I seem to in conflict with, big smiles as it seems me and technology are not getting on as well of late.

Not everything in our garden’s can be rosy all the time and in full bloom. But with Love and attention to what is important in our lives as we give our attention to the things which matter. We then reap that which we sow

I ask myself why is that me and techology seem in conflict right now – Could it be the Universe is wanting my attention elsewhere?   I have got much thinking to do at the moment and choices to make.  But I know what ever choice I make, it will be Ok, for there are no right or wrong roads, for all roads lead us to our destinations. It’s just sometimes we can detour off the path and for some they can become lost amid the jungle of choices that in this digital age can distract us from the true seeds we need to sow. Which often are the most basic.

To Care and Share.

We may have forgotten some of  the things that really matter in our lives. As the distractions of this material world have never been greater as they grab our attention and steel our energies and lower our vibrations.

I invite all of you who may be feeling of a low ebb and stressed out with the world right now to reconnect with your inner seed. The one that beats life into you day in and day out. Go into the HEART of Nature and start to listen to your own Heart.

It is patiently waiting for you to understand that all you need do for it to grow and expand to the Light, is for you to nurture it with the best nutrient ever given to man.

LOVE!

Sharing~ and Choosing!

 

Hello my wonderful friends,

You will notice again perhaps how quiet I have been over the last few days.  Sometimes we have to withdraw from the world and the perpetual bombardments of other people’s thinking, and those awful tragedies which have a knock on effect to our energies.

Especially here in the UK where we are going to make a choice on the 23rd June as we vote in the Referendum to Stay or Exit the European Union -EU. I have heard every argument going from both sides to stay or leave until to be quite honest I have switched off from it all.

And the way I switch off is by connecting back into nature, which is my safe haven and energiser from the constant chaos we are being subjected to into our homes from the media with all that is unfolding at this time.

I was looking for a piece of music to share with you on this Father’s Day here in the UK, but as I browsed I came across a favourite speaker and author of mine Gregg Bradon.

I hope you have just 10 minutes of your time to listen to him speak upon these changes in this interview he gave.  Touching upon how we can now choose to co-operate and share. Within his talk he speaks of changing our thoughts around from  “ What can I get from the world that exists” ………. To “ What can I share with the world that is emerging”…..

So while you hopefully listen to his thoughts, I am sharing with you all what I have been up to last week and will be spending more time within our Allotment Plot this coming week in picture format.

Many Thanks to you ALL.

My Dear WordPress family,

 

Thank you for your tremendous support and welcome back, after my absence. And I so thank you for all of your contributions which you make to this blog with your encouraging comments and visits..

It is you that keeps me blogging and it is you that makes this blog what it has become today.. So thank you, all of you.

This last week has been a little hectic as I try to condense time into manageable  ‘Bites’  as I flit through your blogs as I attempt to catch up.. And how frustrated I became when pages wouldn’t load and my computer kept freezing. Another Lesson the Universe thought to teach me.

Most all of you know how I love my garden.. And being outdoors. And this next week there are lots of things yet to get sorted in the allotments as well as my home garden. I need this connection with our Earth Mother, for it she that breathes life into my lungs, and heals me. So I need to spend lots more time working her soil and tending her plants.

I am working my way down the list of those I have not yet called in on since my  vacation. But this is taking extra time due to the still reoccurring page freezes that are happening less but still occurring. But this is taking time, as I love reading your posts and love commenting upon them…

You can see what my Hubby and I have been up to since our return on my Garden Blog, which has sadly got very neglected also.

To see what We have been doing is but One click away HERE and it is in Picture format for easy viewing.  So I hope you can see what time has to be spent in preparing such a huge plot of land for growing food.

 

 Thank you all of you for reading and

Have a wonderful week..

Love and Blessings

Sue

 

 

As busy as a Bee!

It has been a while since I posted here upon the progress of our allotment, as I share more within my Garden Blog Dreamwalker’s Garden along with walks in the countryside. Simply because I am aware of the space I take up now here with my photo’s. So that is why I started my other blog. 

But I wanted to share and maybe introduce others to the wonders of ‘Growing Your Own‘… Also I wish say thank you to all for you wonderful support here at Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary and welcome all those who are new followers here and to my Gardening blog.

Yesterday it was a wonderfully Sunny day, very Spring like. The weather here in the UK has been full of April showers, fluctuating from warm to icy winds, rain and hail, to snow.

So we make ever effort to make use of the fine days to walk and get in the garden.

My Husband is the one who gets all the credit this time of year as he is the one doing all the heavy spade work.. I more or less direct from the side lines, until the planting of crops start. I am the one who prunes, hoe’s up the weeds and collects in the harvests.. So first here is the first photo as the potatoes are now in.

Potato Crops now in

Potato Crops now in We have 3 rows of earlies and 5 rows of late..

And so are the Brassica’s

Keeping a plot this size weed free is not easy, and many who take on the allotments are not prepared for the hard work that it takes to keep them maintained.. So we have seen a few who took on allotments only a couple of years ago leave.. Plus a few old friends who have had to give up their allotments due to ill-health.. We were sorry to see a fellow allotmenteer  two plots away say goodbye to his plot simply due to ill-health and him not being able to keep it maintained .. But we bought his shed from him.. My husband managed to take it down, it has to yet be erected to where we want it.. In the mean time its in pieces behind our other shed 

Garden shed

Newer shed soon to be put in place at the side of the other one..

The Peas, Turnips, Beetroot and onion sets are in along with Parsnip too.

The Greenhouse is a hub of growth at the moment too, as is our spare bedroom.. I am growing tomato plants and I am trying this year to grow ‘Egg plants’- Abergines.

Tomato Plants

I am especially delighted as 4 of these  Tomato plants are from a yellow cherry tomato I had given me last year from another gardener.. They were so sweet I took the seeds from a ripe tomato and dried the seeds out on some kitchen paper.. I didn’t think they would germinate, but all of them did.

With the weather going from warm to cold so quickly we have rescued a number of bees recently too.. Who have felt the cold and become lethargic.. For more facts about Bumble Bees Visit Here We put this Bee who was hardly moving on our lawn onto our wall flower holder which still has some pansies in.. I went in doors and put a small amount of honey from a fresh honeycomb I had onto a leaf and spoon full in the the holder.  It wasn’t long before his long tongue came out and he was lapping up the energy and he flew away..  Today he along with some other Bee friends have been back 🙂

To finish off are just a couple of Spring Photos from our Garden.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful week
