Forgive me for showing these again but they were taken with my new camera and I feel they are better than my previous version.
The background is a little on the pinkish side though. I will have to keep trying.The exhibition has just three more days to go..weekends only ..four if you include today. Astley Hall Coach house gallery, Chorley. Free admission.
Now: I know I was very optimistic in this post, and excited about my vegetable patch.
Well its a good job anticipation is so enjoyable because the outcome is not good. The broad beans fell over numerous times, allowing the snails to leap aboard their bendy stems. Some of the flowers went black and dropped off and I am still waiting for my harvest.
I've had a squeeze at these pods and I'm sure they're empty.
The leaves are holey and even my nasturtiums haven't flowered.
And as for the garlic......well apart from most of it vanishing this is whats left. Impressed?
No neither am I.
Oh well. never mind.
I had a belated birthday trip out with my friends last night. We caught a steam train in Bury and had a chug along the moors whilst eating a lovely meal.
And drinking copious amounts of wine.
All the carriages were 'first class'
Many of the passengers were in vintage costume to go with the train.
This is a place called 'Summerseat'. I really must investigate from the roadside sometime.
