Lucky it's a narrow boat!

There are still lots of branches in the water after the recent storms. There are also underwater banks of leaves that catch you unawares until the boat stops going forward amidst a great muddly swirl of green and brown. Still, it is lovely boating in this season as the sunny days bring out the gorgeous colours.
This morning, the first frosts, at my boat at least!

I really should have eaten my chard before now, I sowed it too thickly and kept meaning to thin it out by eating it. Hope it's still good after frost!

Hi Carrie

Is seems like an age since we last met but you're often in my thoughts - especially as Ty's spleen showed "changes" in a scan today - it's probably nothing but reminded me of Milou :-(

The blackird on your roof looks so real!

Hi Sue
Dogs eh? Constant source of joy and worry. I really hope Ty's 'changes' are slow and benign and just a part of ageing gently. Fingers crossed.
Will check your blog for any meeting-up opportunities :-)

well it does not seem to have flopped so it could still make good eating

Hi wolfie, hope you're well. I thought you meant the blackbird at first! You're right, the chard was/is good to eat, though looking at the chard in a nearby allotment, I can see how stunted it is due to overcrowding. I'll do better next year :-)
