Visitors Bring Sunshine and A Mystery Book
Yesterday I had two blog visitors, its nice having visitors from blogland, putting a face to the posts,
First Pam arrived from A New Life In Wales I have met with Pam on several occasions, a few moments later Bovey Belle arrived from Codinsandcream, two lovely ladies who I could happily spend hours with talking,
Pam's visit was to collect some alpaca poo for her garden and she lassoed the sunshine and brought it with her, Bovey Belle brought cakes to have with tea
Blueberry and Peach lovely and moist.
I was also lucky to be given some new plants for my growing developing garden and some autumn fruiting Raspberries to add to the fruit plot.
A lot of my plants have come from friends over years and its lovely to walk around the garden and remember those people.
A tour of ducklings ducks and Alpacas while the sun continued to shine.
After my visitors left I set to with the strimmer and made the effort to tidy up around the raised beds, planted out the climbing beans and bush beans and sowed some brassicas including the red sprouts I got in the Easter swap. The sunshine continued so more plants were got into the ground, a lovely day all in all.
Now the Mystery book
I got this book at the show for 50p band new all the books I got were 50p, anyway I digress, the diary was discovered in the 1930's and serialised in Farmers Weekly, the mystery surrounds who is Anne Hughes it seems they farmed somewhere along the Herefordshire border, there has been a hunt on to find out more about this family and another twist to the tale is the original diary was loaned to an American solider during the war and the soldier left with the diary, A website has been set up to search for answers www.annehughesdiary.co.uk there is photos on there of the American solider and lots of info about the research into Anne Hughes.
