A mighty summer

Frog Pond Farm is looking particularly lush – we have had some rain recently, well quite a lot actually. The grass is electric green. Chook towers Our property is approx 10 acres and being a chicken fan, I dedicated a paddock to my feathered friends. For all those that don’t have chooks you are probably …

Nature’s supermarket

The sky is bright blue today .. a fringe of cloud puffs dot the horizon. It is hot and humid, but there is a good breeze which is doing a splendid job of banging the blind against the open window .. I’m ensconced upstairs in the garage. This is the time of year that the …

Bill will love this!

I’m sitting here tapping away on the laptop gazing out the window. It is another gorgeous summer’s day, birds are chirping madly, butterflies are cartwheeling in the light breeze and I’m indoors feeling guilty. I should be out in the garden, but it’s hot and I have a post that I must do … It …

The colours of summer

Does much change in your garden from year to year? Seems that many things are much the same as they were last year at our place! What a surprise … I dug up a garlic the other day and found nothing at the end. In fact, if it wasn’t for the garlic smell I would …

An eye to the sky …

An eternity seems to have slipped by since I last did my last post (ok 6 weeks at least)! The calendar says Spring is with us but I have my reservations, the weather has been an extension of winter with rain, rain and more rain. Nothing seems to stop the weeds from growing though – …

Beside the seaside

I could never be a travel blogger .. my posting skills are appalling. We have been back home for 6 weeks and I still haven’t got you to the UK  … here goes With only a handful of days of our holiday remaining, we left France via planes, trains and automobiles to get us to …

Yet more holiday rantings …

Hello France, hello beautiful weather, hello expanding waistline! Flying into Toulouse our destination was a village called Najac which is about 1.5 hours away. The reason for our trip was to meet another blogging friend, Annette. The motorways in France are well signed which is great, however their speed limit is 130 km which hubby …

More holiday rantings

Let’s get back to the Mediterranean … Greeks love their garlic which they add to most savoury dishes. I have eaten some of the best tzatziki I have ever had the pleasure of tasting, used crusty bread to mop up Greek olive oil which had been poured lovingly onto a side plate, shared oven baked …

Holiday rantings

So much for me posting more regularly …what nonsense! I do have an excuse though, we have been away overseas for the past month seeing family, friends and bloggers! Trust me, I’m no travel writer so I seriously hope that I won’t bore you with my holiday rantings. Arriving at Heathrow airport at a sensible …

Misty Mornings

I haven’t done a post in such a long time .. does it matter? Well not really I guess. The question is, are you good people still out there waiting for more news from Frog Pond Farm? Autumn has abruptly become winter .. it’s funny how one season disappears into another. Swallowed up. Nature is …
