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!!

It seem's weeks since i blogged it feels like i've been to busy to write anything interesting or not interesting for that matter... and there's been a kerfufle while i was absent all finished now though which shows how strong we are some of us more sensitive but all sharing a link to pull us together and it's cool..

It's raining here again and i aint going to complain!!! i just wish i hadnt danced so vigorously!!!

The garden as gone beyond the romantic secret garden abundance to the bramble filled forest surrounding sleeping beautys castle!! we turn our backs for two weeks and its a jungle.

The dogs are flea ridden again..Monty is still exilled to "Dai's field" a steep gorse filled bank with a public footpath across it, thinking about it we've not had many walkers coming that way! monty has been known to hold people trapped until they relinquish their picnics,, he loves "tuna sandwiches" very weird and disconcerting for the captured party a meat eating horse.

A month from today There's to be Televised harness racing in the valley below [no i'm not entering M]on s4c unfortunatly and we have aeriel views of the field. Now I'm always opening myself up for hard work and dissapointment so i'll run this past you.. Allow people to bring there picnics and gazebo's to watch from up here for a small donation towards the school or sports commitee 50p each or something...i'll tell the local papers and who are sure to put it in because its televised and maybe get a bit of advertising in there for me as well.. We have loads of parking ..????

It's also j's 19th and a 50th anniversary that day to and the night i usually camp..fun fun fun.


  1. I think that sounds like a great idea - I'd go! I'm sure people would love the idea of bringing their own picnics and having a place to watch proceedings. I have to agree about gardens turning into jungles at this time of year..

  2. That garden is amazing. I wish mine looked like that. It's just a huge area of lawn, covered in daisies, puppy poo and God only knows what else! Neither hubby or myself are keen gardeners. It does get cut from time to time with hubby's sit-on but there's always something else to do instead. I'll take a picture of it soon.
    I think your idea is fab. Go for it. All the best.

  3. New Hound-Chicken Licken would be very interested-thinks that's a great idea and would get some coverage in her village News!!

    Good to hear your blog-I always find it interesting.

    warm wishes

  4. It's a good idea - but 50p sounds too little to me.

  5. Charge £5 per car and throw in hot coffee. Garden looks lovely. I love it when they get all overgrown and blowsy.

  6. Go for it Bodran ...The fiver sounds beter than the 50p!

  7. Hello Jo,
    That garden is lovely, abundant, full of beauty. Do you have the same results every year? Wow.

    I agree with other comments, you must ask for more than 50p. You know better than we do what would be acceptable, but it has got to be more that 50p!

    You are such a sweetie to write to me in my crazed business/busy-ness!

    Not over yet, but I still have my head above the waves.


  8. My jungle is now a swamp with all this continuous rain.
    You must charge more than 50p.
    Good luck anyway.

  9. I have no idea of how much 50p is but if 5 is more then, you should charge what the market will bear. I think Toady's idea of the coffe is a good one!
    Your garden looks wonderful!

  10. Oh the rain has brought the weeds on here, but your garden looks glorious.

    Am with the others on the price - definitely more than 50p!x

  11. Good to catch up, and good for your daughter, I was in a similar situation when I was 12, mum was furious with the teacher, who refused to apologise, a learning curve about people, so glad your daughter cares enough about others to stand up for them.
    We haven't had much rain, but its coming this weekend, just as the schools break up.
