There has been a lot of hard work in the garden recently due to the time of year
A lot more to come due to a number of changes
For now a TEST for my dear blogging friends
Do you see any difference to the garden in the 9th photo here?
And on an entirely different note
I have never watched the TV series Doc Martin
Knowing that Doc Martin was the name of some footwear I never even checked it out
then I hear it mentioned in a few different places including on an American blog
Next I read that the doctor who is medical adviser to our daily newspaper was very involved, not only advising on set but also supplying the medical story lines.
Apparently every single one of them are based on real situations
So, off to Amazon where I was able to buy a set of all 5 series
at the handsome price of £20 (aprox $32)
Decided to begin watching Saturday evening - I was hooked and watched 4 episodes of series 1 in one sitting! It was only the lateness of the evening that brought my viewing to a halt
For the uninitiated - a brilliant surgeon working in London develops a phobia of blood
He moves to Cornwall and becomes a general practitioner in a beautiful seaside Cornish village where the locals generally live a slow and simple life compared with London
One feels sorry for Doc Martin as he tries to adjust
He is a brilliant doctor but has no people skills or bedside manner so it takes several episodes before he manages to endear himself to the locals and become accepted and loved
Of course it is a comedy and the scenery is great
How am I ever going to fit in about 60 hours of viewing!
