Still Here

World  without end - Amen!  yes, still here - the world still turns and God watches over us despite rumours that 21/5/11 could be the beginning of the end of the world.

I have woken this morning to gentle rain, so gentle I was able to go out and drink my tea in the garden with old Amber.

I was on my allotment late last night with the robin, I watered everything and enjoyed the smell of the plants - I had the place to myself. As I had the hose out I went round filling the randomly hidden watering cans of my fellow allotmenteers (is that a word?) so they will have a nice surprise. The robin likes me because when I water the spiders and beetles come out on the soil and he gets dinner.


My little 7ft apple tree produced only one apple last year - this year it is making up for that...

Lemons waiting for dragon flies...

my pumpkin has just begun to flower

Today I am looking forward to a walk int he woods in the rain - something I loved to do with my grandmother as a child.  If the sun shines later I am on the allotment and if it doesn't I still have this evening to look forward to - it's our praise service at church welcoming our friends with special needs - I love this gathering and have met some beautiful people, we sing with sign language so a chance for me to learn too. 

Have a blessed day. Bettyx
