My garden

This is Dad doing his morning prayers in my beautiful cottage garden (all planted by me). In the second photo you can see the hanging pots, Becca and Sam, which you gave me last year. I think the plants have doubled in size in the year. This is the view from our dining room window which visitors see when they eat with us. That's one reason I planned the garden there.

I have some great photos of Mum creating her worm farm last year. I'll have to get her to post them here. (She's in Sydney this week.)
It's lovely living with access to Mum's wonderful garden.

Do I detect a certain mockery in connection with my worm farm???? Yes, I just love making compost - the last lot was superb. And my worms are reproducing at a scary rate. Now, I want to talk about Matchpoint with anyone who has seen it. I thought it terrible(wanted to get under the seat at points) but a great piece of art. Does the film ultimately agree that it's better to be lucky than to be good?????

i still have not seen it, but will soon!
i would never mock a worm farm, you have to be brave and have foresight and wisdom to cultivate and be inspired by worm farming ...i am a big fan, but have not taken the plunge yet... do you need to touch them at the beginning?
as for the profile hits, i have no idea how they get so big, obe friend of mine has almost 900 hits

You really don't ever have to touch them if you don't want to. But you get fond of the babies.Here's Dorothy Wordsworth, on compost, etc: "A divine morning.At breakfats Wm. wrote part of an ode. Mr Oliff sent the dung and Wm.went to work in the garden. We sate all day in the orchard."

Welcome, Annie, and well done to negotiate the blog system. Anita, the block in my blog is because I can't get my photos up. Rachel has now returned from Sydney, so may help me. But I will go out immediately and photograph my worms for you, in anticipation.

Have you seen my new photos? All my own work. I guess I shouldn't be so proud, since I think the same photos are up 4 or 5 times, but better than losing track of the photos altogether. Am exhausted, so will put up worm photos later.

Hi Gretta. I have seen "Match Point". I know that you probably don't think much of my choice of movies since the John Travolta movie I recommended many years ago (Phenonemon I think). I happen to really like Woody Allen films. Although I thought it clever, it made me feel sick inside - I couldn't see a way out. And, how could anyone dig themselves into such a hole. A bit like "The Talented Mr Ripley" made me feel. I don't particularly like the male actor either. He is hard to warm to at all, but maybe that was the intent.
PS I am very impressed with the photos of the garden.
