Allotment 5 - just like her ......


Well today it was announced that HM The Queen had given permission for an allotment to be created in the grounds of Buckingham Palace ......


Well I can tell her now that it is hard work but somehow I can not imagine her out on the plot hoeing the turnips ..

Above is the result of some of our effort - main crop potatoes ( Romano ) very much still in their early stages ..

I can't imagine her knowing what a turnip is! Asparagus possibly but she'd have to wait a few years for those. Tidy looking plot you have, hope the vandals stay away.

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......


Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
