Yes, I am still here but have not posted for a month nor hardly visited. This has not been intentional but as we all know 'life happens'. Talk about slowing down as one gets older, we just seem to get busier! Apart from that my i-pad and Facebook have played a part.
I need to rectify this with a few bits and pieces and get visiting you, my blogging buddies.
Where do I start - maybe with a photograph from the beginning of the year.
Our son was trying out his new camera for this photo
but the following are mine
The Grandchildren are growing fast
Five and Eight here
A lego gift I had bought for Bekah which she assembled in less than half an hour
We had some gorgeous weather in April and even managed to have our AGM at Pilgrims Hall outside
When pruning shrubs in March I began to think about cutting down on some more of the work in the garden (those who have followed my garden may remember that in the last two years we have removed some the larger shrub beds and replaced them with small island beds and planted new roses). I am looking ahead to the time when it might be more than I can handle.
So decided to 'just do it' rather than dither.
Hopefully soon this area will be dug out and grassed over. I am now looking forward to seeing this area opened up. It was hard to let go of the Smoke Bush particularly, but it had spread to it's limit of 16ft x 16ft and a lot of the wood was dying off.
Still some Spring colour to enjoy
I'll finish with another tea note
My son just returned from his second trip this year and having seen how we enjoyed the tea he brought back from a tea plantation in Bangladesh in February, he brought some back from a Borneo tea plantation.
It's interesting to note the slight difference in flavour these teas have.
This is Sabah - the national black tea.
It is cultivated on the verdant foothills of Mount Kimbalu, Malaysia's first ever World Heritage Site.
Here choice tender leaves are carefully harvested and meticulously processed to preserve the pristine purity of the Borneo Rainforest.
Well I just realised that I have been blogging for 8 years Easter gone. To think that when I began I wondered what on earth I would have to say!
