June already? How can that be possible? Where on earth did May go to?
I neglected the blogging world during May – I do have one or two excuses – mainly a shockingly slow connection to the broadband which makes any online work painful and also an illness I can’t seem to shake off. Feeling overwhelmingly tired all the time is not helping me to concentrate on editing photos or writing blog posts.
So my monthly round-up is going to be very brief and in fact if it was not for the fact that my daughter and granddaughters came down for a visit at the end of the month I probably would not have any photos to share. As it is I shall just go with V2 of CG’s challenge and show you a rather foggy image taken at Porthcurno last Sunday just before the rain came in hard. Porthcurno is a stunning beach at the western end of Cornwall and those steep steps you can see in the corner lead up to the Minack Theatre which holds open air events in an amphitheatre carved out of the rocks. And no, I didn’t climb them! But as you can see in the header image, lots of people do.
I did some work in the garden before I fell ill, mainly weeding and planting the raised beds, but a lot of plants got eaten by the slugs and snails as I have not been vigilant in checking every day. Next year I am going to revise the use of these beds and create a herb potager (apparently the S&S do not like scented plants) and possibly try some fruit such as raspberries and gooseberries. I have also created a gravelled area to replace a small section of the lawn and planted some climbers and other shrubs to give us more privacy from the neighbours. I will get some photos next month when I have finished the work.
The Cardinal is continuing his photo project throughout 2017 – a blogging event, a monthly photo challenge. Read his blog for the new rules this year (he is running two versions) and to view his interpretation and those of other participants.
