Sometimes we don’t take time to stop and look around us and appreciate being in the moment

Sometimes we don't take time to stop and look around us and appreciate being in the moment. Most of us are glued to our phones, reading texts, sending emails, checking our social media.
.
So whilst walking @misslucy_lou this sunny morning  I was practicing being mindful, grateful and appreciating the world around me.
.
 I came across this beautifully planted flower bed. So simple but so effective.
.
I thought it was quite magical, ethereal almost like Narnia with the old fashioned lamp post.
.
Perfect garden for a Halloween posting. .

Village life in the Summer! 10 mini videos here on this post

Village life in the Summer! 
10 mini videos here on this post. Swipe left after each one.

The St Helens village horticultural show Isle of Wight.

So no success with any of my veg entries this year. I entered beef tomatoes, mini purple tomatoes, and golden tomatoes,  runner beans, purple French beans and rhubarb.

My only 5 apples produced from my apple tree each had a single nibble from a passing bird out of them before I could pick them!

However I did win 2 x second prizes for my pastel artwork of the dog and my watercolour beach view from the decking of a beach house.

My two 2nd place wins earned me 80p. 
I will be going on a spending spree tomorrow. 
As they now say it's all in the taking part-not the winning.

Those who have known me for years in my cool urban London lifestyle would never have imagined me growing fruit and vegs and entering them in the local village horticultural society's Summer show.

Do stuff outside your normal fast paced hectic and often stressful life. It's fun. .
