Monty and Bok Enjoying our May 1st Sunshine.
My old friend Jock had an amusing ditty for May 1st.....
The first of May.
He loved reciting it for the benefit of elderly spinsters, mothers superior, or anyone else he considered shock-able.
As May brought with it some decent weather (for a change), I took advantage and planted out my Aubergines, Peppers, and a few Swiss Chard plants. I also sowed a few Radishes, and threw some compost and horse manure about. If the weather stays fine for a few days, I'll rotovate it all in, and get on with more planting. I'll also need to get hoeing, as weeds are popping up all over the place.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live between an ancient cottage in a tiny village in perfectly tranquil French countryside, and a bijou townhouse in Brighton UK. In France we have plenty of fruit trees, all situated amongst a view that takes the breath away, in the UK we have a handkerchief sized patio. We also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
