August in our world

Abit more of Abbey Park

Do you remember this from earlier in the year?

We wondered if these are the babies

This is their world

Pretty, isn't it?

Wheats Nursery and Flower and Produce Show

We found a new nursery on the way to a Flower and Produce Show

Sorry about the dustbins.

Very nicely layed out, they have a tea rooms as well.

Nice View

Produce Show

Some fun things first.

Great, arn't they?

A Taste of the Good Life

Jam Making

First time at making jam. I even had to buy the Jam Pan. It need to earn its keep now. I guess everybodys for jar of jam costs £20.00!!!

It worked out fine btw, and very nice on toast.

I'd been thinking about having a go for a while, then a lady at work bought in a fruitbox full from her tree, so it seemed the ideal time.

I've since made plum jelly from our own plums, this seems to have worked out very well, apart from, I must remember in future that I do have a funnel!!!

More Holiday Photo's

Black Prince

We were very very lucky to see this arrive whilst we were in the station cafe.

Attention to detail, this chap is cleaning the engine, before she goes out again.

Nice and clean now.

Pensthorpe Nature Reserve

Whilst on holiday we went to Pensthorpe, home of Springwatch


The legs really don't look big enough.

Some planting schemes

Hope you liked those, we enjoyed it.

A Trip into Town and a Picnic Lunch by the Town Hall

I have no excuse for not blogging very much in July, I'd like to say these been alot of allotmenteering, and although there has been abit, it hasn't kept me that busy. I do have the Other Half to thank for that. He says I sow the seeds in the spring, so its not that.

I can't say I've been gardening alot, as it pretty much takes care of itself.

Perhaps its too much reading of other blogs ;-)

The Town Hall, which is in Town Hall Square

The Fountain in the centre.

We then went to Castle Gardens

A lazy day on the River

Its a lovely walk through, we walked through here earlier in the year when you had to watch your step as the ground was very icy.

Hope you enjoyed our stroll through town.
