Look! A ‘May in the garden‘ post!
Just a little colour.

Every year c r o s s o a k covers May in the Garden.
Here’s a little glimpse of August.
What to do on our first full snow day back in the UK? Maybe a mini-expedition along the footpaths to the fabled Castle Meadows?
While the back garden had been great for sledging (even benefiting from some flood-lit final runs) we decided to sample the delights of the multiple runs at ‘the castle’, complete with ramps and jumps.
With the picturesque St. Peter’s Spire as a backdrop, S & H & Pablo joined us for the fun.
As dusk fell we warmed up with some hot chocolate and dry gloves before setting of around the fields to home.
A Sunny Saturday walk along the Grand Union Canal
Rooney and Rooney came with us.
Some of the terminology gets some getting used to. I guess this would have been called Butt Side Lock. Whatever, it was half empty…
…possibly because the bottom gate of bottom side lock was leaking a fair bit.
H inspected the overflow – maybe a future aqua-engineer in the making?
While F inspected some of the nicer boats to live in on the canal.
Our destination? The Three Horse Shoes pub, a delightful spot for a pint and some nosh.
Another May in the Garden pic.
Apparently this is a ‘Daisy Thing’, also known as a ‘weed’. But since it’s about the only colourful thing that hasn’t been eaten by the rabbits, deer, possum or our friendly neighbourhood cougar, I think it’s quite lovely.
Our third May in America.
This year Fay and the boys have been doing wonderful things with the tubs on the deck. It’s beyond deer height you see.
As is becoming tradition, May in the garden.
Another year, another May, a different garden, but just as beau-de-ful.
