I am having a rest from making Granny Squares. My new challenge is crocheting in circles. I had to block this as it wouldn't lay flat. I don't know what to do with it now ? I am sort of stuck so I might leave this one for now and start another one !
We found a dead Bat. The poor little soul was still intact so I took a photo of him after pinning his wings flat I don't know what sort of Bat he or she is ?
New Followers of my Blog will have missed my earlier post about Bats. I designed this and sent it to a Cross Stitch Magazine many many years ago. They liked it and paid me £25 to publish it in the magazine ! There is something very special about Bats
We ran out of Garden String yesterday so I used scraps of Wool instead
I will use Wool to tie up our plants in future as it is so much softer
Our Apples feed us, 4 Chickens next door and two local Horses. Some of our Apples are so bruised I put them in our Compost Bin. I noticed some were staying whole and taking months to break down. Now I chop them up with a Garden Spade before I add them to the Compost
The Somerset Hotel in Llandudno in North Wales. Seaview Room on the 3rd floor
There are signs everywhere in Llandudno saying " Please don't feed the Seagulls "
It was hard not to feed them as they were crying for food on our window ledge
View from the Pier in the evening
The Hotel runs excursions. This was Beaumaris
Beaumaris has a Castle but we didn't have time to go inside
Betws-y-Coed was beautiful. We also went to
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch which translated into English means
St Mary's Church in the Hollow of the White Hazel Near to the Rapid Whirlpool of Llantysilio of the Red Cave
Carnarvon Castle. There are lots of Castles in Wales !
The Great Orme is a massive hill overlooking Llandudno with stunning views.There is a Visitor Centre, Childrens Playground and a Cafe on the top. We went up in a Tram but could have gone by Cable Car. There is a Car Park at the top
I would love to go back to Llandudno for more than three days
We have grown Carrots in big pots. Hung up above shoulder height well away from the Carrot Fly this year which has been good. They take a long time to grow but taste lovely
Alderman Peas. Firestorm and Snowstorm Runner Beans
I have been freezing a lot of Runner Beans and giving some away. Definately worth growing next year
We haven't had many Courgettes so far this year. I will try a self fertile variety next year like Partenon or Goldmine. Lettuces have been very good this year
Grapes are very small
Our Raspberry Canes have grown ten foot high this year. They were swaying around as I had nothing tall enough to tie them to. Our Runner Beans have attached themselves to the Raspberry Canes which are now holding up the Raspberries. Isn't Mother Nature clever !
I bought two Hedgehog Houses Hopefully they might rest in these overnight as they travel miles looking for food at night. They usually live under our Shed floor but it needs replacing soon
We need to start deciding what to grow next year....
