I put my bedding plants out,
Shaking the soil all about
It's Springtime Hokey Cokey
Weather's turning around
That's what it's all about.
Ohhhhh plants in the kitchen
Ohhhhhh plants in the garden
Ohhhhhhh plants in the kitchen
In out in. Out
Think I need a greenhouse!
Snowing yesterday. Snow this morning. This is not right. I'm usually back in flip flops by now!
It's a good job I'm British and therefore legally required to whine about whatever weather is happening right now!
I wanted to share this quite local legend with you T'other day, but orange hands took over. Update - a light shade of Tangerine has been reached.
Anyway...you may have seen/heard this but I'm carrying on regardless!
En route to Miss 21's and back via the Motorway. You go on possibly the most scenic route on the motorway in the land.
Betwixt two little northern towns called Tebay and Kirkby Stephen there are some woods that you can see from the roadside that I call the Honeymoon Woods.
There are several stories regarding the origins of this heart shaped wood.
One is that a young couple eloped to marry against all wishes of their families a la Romeo and Juliet. On the Wedding Night, the husband killed the wife then killed himself and their heartbroken families planted the woods where they were found.
Another is a young farmer planted the wood in memory of his young wife who died on their wedding night.
Someone ( if you do a bit of google searching ) rather disappointingly came up with the truth of it's actually just a visual illusion due to how the trees have grown in the cleft of the valley.
I choose to ignore the science and go with the love story!
Last but not least is this screen shot of my 'Map my Walk' route of the mile I did last night at Night Owls. It makes me laugh every time I look at it!!
It was a bit of a maths challenge set by the children as we were trying to work out if 13.5 laps of the netball court was 1km, how many laps was a mile? They calculated approx 22 laps. It's actually about 20.
