Over the past 12 months we've been celebrating the start of Guiding. We've had lots of events over the year for girls, but today was chance to say thank you to the adults who run all the units. I've just got back from a garden party where it was most strange to see all these ladies who normally you only ever see in uniform dressed in their best. The weather was little chilly so I was very glad to be able to wear my Aeolian shawl (for only the second time!) for some much needed warmth.
I showed you the finished photos last year but I don't think I ever showed you me wearing it, and it's very nearly guiding blue!

Happy birthday Girlguiding, here's to another 100 years!

Mary, Mary how does your garden grow?

Well not quite with silver bells and cockle shells but certainly it's growing at a great rate of knots.
While I was away riding the weather was sunny and warm and this last week it's rained a bit and the plants have gone crazy! Some of them a bit too crazy as some of the salad leaves have started flowering!
My tomatoes are flowering like crazy, and even the pepper which has clung to life for the last month has put on an inch. The courgettes are starting to show signs of flowering and I had my first mange tout for lunch on Friday. To think, this time last year I hadn't even moved in yet so nothing was growing!
