Just arrived back after spending a few nights here.....Muncaster Castle...we enjoyed it so much we're booked to go back in the week before Hallo'een, it's reckoned to be one of the most haunted castles....ooooh errr....



While we were there we enjoyed a superb flying display from the owls they help breed there...this and a couple more flew a wee bit too close for comfort... 😁

After a couple of months hard work the allotment is finally taking shape...the greenhouse is up and full of a mix of various plants...the strawberries are starting to produce a decent crop, the blackcurrants are starting to ripen and the brassicas are now protected with netting...

They are that....

The azaleas and rhododendrons are starting to show themselves up at Muncaster Castle...the gardens are starting to look spectacular. My partner and I have just come back after spending two nights there in the Coachman's Quarters...we enjoyed it so much we're going back at the beginning of July to stay for three nights...it's wonderful to be able to explore the 70 or so acres of the gardens once all the visitors have gone....it's a haven of peace and tranquillity....the views from the castle looking up the Eskdale valley are breathtaking..

My partner and I put our names on the list for an allotment last Summer when we went to an open day at our local allotments...so there we were No. 21 on the list...three weeks ago we get a phone call to ask if we still wanted one....here we are now three weeks later...dog tired after all the digging, mulching ...painting the shed and putting up guttering to catch the rain water...with still much more to do.

But we've managed to plant potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower and brussell sprouts. Plus 8 raspberry canes aswell as a damson, apple and plum fruit trees...oh yes....transplanted a bed of strawberries ...

This afternoon was spent preparing the ground for a base for a greenhouse...

The top photo was the plot when we took it over, the other two were taken this afternoon....

Every day is a birthday in my book...to see the sun rise and set...the stars move silently across the night sky...we live on a beautiful orb that moves relentlessly through the cosmos...

Now isn't that worth celebrating every day...
