The seeds are growing in the yard.

The hot weather has passed for the moment and the north wind is blowing but the little plants are still growing.
I am now learning how to train peas; other people train dogs or even lions but the methods appear to be different. The carrot and stick seems unlikely to work and standing in the yard with a whip and chair will not, I fear, impress them. Climbing peas appear to be born with a fear of heights and would rather crawl and trail about the place than reach for the sky.
So I have put in small canes to help them reach the ropes and trellis in the hope they get the right idea but I may have to revert to the whip.

At last some action.......

These photos were taken last week, so I am late in posting. The weather has been wonderful but the sea has been flat so the boys have been out of luck during the holiday. We live in hope for next week.

It is all happening.....

Spring Beauty is flowering at the cliff bottom and looking very fresh.

The Sandwort is beginning to take over the sand and is growing apace.

The Butterbur is in fine form with many flower heads. I almost missed it as I always think it flowers later than it does.

The kestrels are back and the sky is blue; what more can you ask for?

The deckchair is done......

I have been flipping and printing and ironing like a mad thing but it is done. The printer played up, don't they always, and I had to borrow an iron as mine was to lightweight.

I took it down to the beach for a breath of fresh air before it is put in The C21 Shop until it goes to Cromer. It was fun to do but much harder work than I expected. All that ironing!
