It's been a while since I checked in. The heatwave we had put a stop to gardening at the allotment, as I took shelter in the shade. I'm fair skinned so I don't last long in the heat. That and being in the North West of the UK i'm used to cooler summers haha! My … Continue reading Autumn Is Coming
Ah! Here we are day 10, 1/3 of the way through the challenge. Today I discovered one of our tadpole friends is starting to grow his frog legs.
