Hello, my love, it's getting cold on this island


A view up my back passage

We have had a fab day - well, an afternoon, really, after I managed to get a lie-in - pottering in the garden, dodging the rain showers, putting a new cover on the (polythene) greenhouse in preparation for anything winter may throw at us. It is looking lovely out there [as my other half Madam Arcati demonstrates so well in his own blog]...

I think we all deserve a little "light music interlude", courtesy of an old favourite that I haven't played for years - here's Koop and the dreamily beautiful Koop Islands:



Magnifique!

    1. We've worked very hard to get things to come to fruition as they have - and it's always good to have admirers of our stems and passages at our age, dear! Jx

  2. I see you've got Black-Eyed Susan up your back passage. And lovely she's looking too! She's looking a little worse for wear at mine - I keep forgetting to keep her supplied with drink! Poor love's stuck in the window box out the front...

    1. Susan's done us proud. She's had a bit of a time of it with the winds - but "she gets knocked down, and she gets up again"! Jx
