'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

Me-Now-Views; the Northern Explorer version

Before departing to the upper right quadrant of the Bonny Land, I had to wrestle with the triffids tomato giants to get them into the bath (the capsicum and chili plants too) and leave them soaking...

This one lone fruit was there... it's still there after three weeks, plus one other...

I could do a whole post on these guys... in fact, look out, cuz I will!!!

The gorse and the broom was OUTSTANDING this year
and the air was filled with its pollen and the perfume of coconut


  1. We are wondering if that tomato plant has taken over the flat yet?
    Toodle pip!
    PS Seals are scary.

  2. Hello, I always love the dogs and the cute seal. The view of the water is gorgeous. Lovely blooms. Your tomato plant looks great. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  3. What a gorgeous tomato plant you have. It must love where it lives.
    I bet you are looking forward to a sample.
    I'm gonna try to at least look at blogs from my iPad but posting and commenting from it is a Bear!
    Hugs and I'll see you on the flip side

  4. I love gorse! When touring through Ireland there would always be yellow somewhere, either the spring or autumn gorse would be blooming.

    I am imagining you filling the tub to the brim and then lowering your plants in it. Did they not drown or did you only leave them a couple of inches?

      I wrapped the pots in bubble-wrap which had a few small holes punched at the bottom them settled them in a bath one third full of water and feed... the greenery is strong, but as have not been around to see to the polllination, I doubt there will be more than the one little tom off the whole thing!!! Yxx
