Practice makes perfect

This is my first ever blog post generated by my new iPad so if there are any problems please blame Apple and not me. [Mr A says I'm grumpy when I have new things. I suspect it's that 'control freak' syndrome. It won't do what I tell it to do!]  I've even used the iPad to take and insert photos so while I experiment and learn, here are some photos of Mr A's vegetable garden. The photos aren't brilliant but I hope to get better at it. Practice makes perfect.

Which is why Mr A is brilliant at gardening. During this last month he's planted out potatoes, peas, green beans, broad beans, celariac, mini sweetcorn and carrots which are under the white mesh. He spends a lot of time out there as you can see!


... so do the cats. They follow him down the garden and watch with mild interest. I think they're really waiting for the robin to appear. Our garden has produced two lots of robin babies this year and now there are blackbirds in the yew hedge. I do hope the cats behave. They've been very good so far... except for the live mouse that took up residence under the piano at the weekend having no doubt been brought in by one or both of the girls. Butter wouldn't melt!
