Evening Greenery

The sun has been shining in crazy amounts here in England and oh my have I been loving it, I have spent every evening outside. To be outside in the sun always reminds me of being young bare foot and happy. In the evenings I have been helping mum over the allotment, we have been thinking about getting chickens and pigs. Have you seen lovely updates on keeping chickens over at Bleubird blog just the thought of having baby chicks fills me with happiness, my brother has been looking after sickly piglets at college this week after a fox attack, we have been getting daily updates. 
I love eating the food we grow on the allotment, I don't often post about the allotment on here, mum was feeling very photographic in these pictures so i thought i would make the most of the sun and mum holding all the colourful rhubarb which we made into a lovely crumble. 
Since the above photos were taken I seem to have burnt my knees and i got bitten by a mean little red ant, so i have been in pain with that as i am allergic to their bite hello red swollen legs. Oh the perils of bare legs. I hope you are all enjoying the weather where ever you are in the world.



  1. I've been to the park a lot this week, the sun really does bring back memories of being a kid.. happy days! Ouch about the knee, hope it heals after a bit of rest!
