No blah blah in about a month, come on peeps let us know what your springtime plans are in the beautiful bourgogne.
All is positive and well for me and cockney in the flying dragon,who has carried us around uncomplainingly for twenty thousand kms since December.
Spring has sprung here and have seen a couple of swallows already and all my hawthorn bushes and trees are in blossom.
Up in my woodland in Brittany at the moment tidying up all the sticks and branches that have come down in the winter atlantic storms. They will all end up stored under tarpaulin and will be offered to the elderly locals next winter.
Once I have finished the sticks,I shall be clearing a path around the outside of the land and cutting back a few brambles then have got a couple of small jobs to do here in Brittany,then hopefully shall be back amongst you lovely people a couple of weeks into april.
I hope that you are all well and happy and hope to see a few more posts from you here on angloinfo soon.
Love and light to all
Hello my friend. It is always good to read of your plans. When you are in Brittany, do you live in the Dragon, or do you have a structural "abris"?
If you are ever in Burgundy 89480, there is a roof to cover you, in a property that is being renovated, therefore, basic. Just pm me.
Spring time plans are to build the greenhouse. I have had the parts for 4 years (it may actually be 5) now faithfully promising Mrs simonarn I will do it.. This time its going up!
By the way, having suffered the ignominy of watching the six nations , surrounded by Irish passport carriers, I refuse to comment any further on the games.
Very kind offer indeed Tigger , but I am independent to a large fault as well as being happy just with the dragon.
All I have in Brittany is two and a half hectares of majoritively decidious woodland which is my own little nature reserve and wood supply.
Simon , just to remind you that there is a phrase that would be relevent to you in your greenhouse. Throwing stones and glass houses !!!
What do you plan to grow in it?
Well done to the Irish is about as far as I will go too :-)
I found Tiggers offer that nice,I thought that I would post it twice :-)
We won’t be back to Burgundy for another three weeks, but having looked at Meteo’s website rain is forecast in our area every day for the next 10 days or so, it will be a case of digging drainage ditches, and wading in mud. In reality what we will be doing is frantically pruning the roses we never got round to pruning earlier, and looking at where we are going to put the veggie plot. We tried before and after having made raised beds we realised they were way too small and in the wrong place, so armed with a new rotavator we going to try again. Any ideas much appreciated, as pretty much newbies in this growing of veg lark.
Have a good day in Bourgogne, we can’t wait to get back !
