A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

Full butt's

"There's nothing quite so satisfying as knowing your butt's are full to over flowing".
2 busy days running up and down hils with hoses and now i can chill and enjoy what the rain as wrought,the garden is splendid lush and green in every shade far more than forty me thinks , from the acid green of the euphorbia to the delicate shade on solomons seal !but i won't count.....and the ponds are full and brimming with watercress........
The teacher for the dowsing course phoned me today to cancel he's got to go into hospital next month i wish him well and we'll do it later in the year, still i've got send money back and dissapoint people and i hate that , but kay serah ??
Nells foot is much better as the photo shows....
We've got 2 static caravans arriving this week, they are to replace the existing ones the children live in [that sounds bad] so lots of work and dismantelling this week, but they are so posh compared to the sheds they've been in the one that is being dismantled was tatty 20yrs ago and all 5 of us lived in it for a year during renovations ,,,,,,,,and having a very good friend with a caravansite they are only costing delivery.........even better..xx emmerdale now.xx


  1. we have had buckets of rain and everything is thriving, beans, onions, cabbages, bindweed, rhubarb, bindweed and bindweed and goosegrass and goosegrass (known by me as sticky willy) again. you were right, my white flowers are stitchwort. would love to see you again. do you fancy a walk at my end?

  2. I thought I was the only one. I love the rain-find the sound very therapeutic and how the birds all come out. I love to see the lushness of my few meagre veggies and flowers after a good shower.

    Your world does sound very 'wholesome' and idyllic-love to read about it.

    warm wishes

  3. PS-Just caught up on other blogs-How lovely your daughter looks. My boys are wonderful, but will never be a soulmate like a daughter would be.

    You are very lucky. And I bet you are a great mum.

    warm wishesx

  4. I'm delighted for your butts but please make it stop now.I'm bored with it. Toady

  5. So wet and green here it hurts the eye !! Gosh wish you could send your dead caravans here I have spent a joful but dirty afternoon clearing a small barn/large shed so boys can have it as their club headquarters acaravan would be such fn!!

  6. My butt always looks full! or is that big? Love the picture of 'you'!!! And love the toast at th top of page. I did a blog on that on the other side.

  7. So no more rain dancing then - we are all a tad soggy. Children living in caravan - sounds very good to me - wish I had thought of it!!!!!

  8. Hello Jo!
    I like every one of the pictures that you have been sharing, and think I am always able to detect which one's you in which one.
    The toast is wonderful. We have got lots of green in beloved park as well.
    I was lucky to get through there this afternoon just before a thunderstorm blew in. To my eyes, the colors always seem to change right before a storm.
    No drawing/painting yet, but lots of observing, and thinking, and ... all my pressing errands are done. It still late afternoon here, so I may just get out the paper and pencils tonight.
    Also tomorrow is totally free for what pleases me.
    How lucky I am.

  9. Well, I didn't want to be rude - for all I knew it could have been some UK cross-dressing thing ....and I am nothing if not culturally sensitive!!! In any case it is a HUGE relief to know that I can wipe that particular mental image of you from my mind!
