Time moves on

Well it seems like for ever since my last blog - but time moves on - a lot has happened - the garden is now finished and the summer house is in place
- a few hiccups on the way including  a fractured wrist for me - painful ouch! - slipped on a muddy patch and threw my arm back onto a pile of stones - everything takes forever to do one handed - I am becoming quite skilled with my left hand ! but the weeds have taken advantage in the allotment - OH has become efficient with chores he never really understood such as hanging the washing out and ironing - but he has kept the home fires burning so to speak - my cast is due to come off on Monday and from then onwards I hope showering with a plastic bag over my arm will be a thing of the past.

The garden has done its best to live up to  its new image  - and my hanging pot took first at the Shrewsbury
Show see below - click on the pic for a better look- and now there has  been another blip on the horizon my pictures won't load properly - anyway I have found another way around this it is a bit long winded but it will suffice until a better method turns up!!

Well it is approx 3 weeks later and a better method has not turned up - I havekept my spirits up by uploading pics and bits to my facebook page and kept in touch with my gardening friends on 'Grows on you 'web site - but the  deep attachment I have to ,Janes Blog clings on - so here we are again - oh I have started off another blog Somewhere in Shropshire - which will be more of a picture blog

My wrist is stronger now  so I am able to take pics again - and do most gardening jobs and dog walking is back again for me - OH has walked the dogs - but everyday Blue has looked at my feet waiting for the walking boots to go on - and to be fair I knew how she felt - because I missed that walk down the lanes and fields - we have been out and about the last few weeks  - two steam rallies - Onslow and Malpas - and a family get together -

Malpas was a sunny day unlike the rainy sunday for Onslow - no pictures taken by me for Onslow - but I took a few at Malpas wrist is getting stronger at last - the atmosphere was electric as always at these steam revival rallies - you name it - you could see it -
dogs catching a ride on on miniature engines - and of course
the fairground -
 and all the fun of the fair  - and of course the best till last!!

Finally a shot taken last weekend of my home town Shrewsbury - a shot of the Welsh Bridge
- bye for now - enjoy your weekend - Jane x
