An English garden on a rainy day.

On the day I arrived in the UK I went to Knightshayes Court in Somerset. What a beautiful place and even more so I think on a rainy day. The house will be for another trip but I did have the opportunity to visit the walled kitchen garden which was fabulous. You go through the archway in the wall and enter into approx 1 acre of rows of vegetables, fruit trees and herb gardens. It was like stepping back into medieval times and was lovely to look all the plants and appreciate the hard work that goes into these gardens. These are just a few pictures I thought to share with you. Enjoy.

Dishes! Dishes! Who will do the dishes!!

Well, with the number of dishcloths I have right now, I guess it might be me. I'm in a swap on Maryjanes Farmgirl forum and am still making the cloths as gifts. I recently came back from the UK and it's really amazing how many rows one can do while crossing the Atlantic especially if you are diverted to Allentown PA to sit in the rain and re-fuel. Hey, seemed like a good time to whip out the knitting needles (wooden of course) and start a few rows. So, these are just a few new ones.
