I suppose that it’s inevitable that friends here come and go as some have done recently.
It’s always nice to get comments from longtime Brasilian friend Lady Drid who continues to blog over on 20six where I started, as Flightbuff, almost six years ago!
Last year some members of Allotments 4 All, including myself, made a collective Christmas donation to Thrive via a JustGiving page. We’re doing it again this year and in a week have already raised over £275 (including GiftAid) for Gardening Leave the charity that we’ve chosen as our good cause.
On Sunday I was informed that Allotments4All member Ellen (ellie2cats) had sadly passed away the previous week. During last year I had identified a plant in her garden as a collomia, and earlier this year she very kindly sent me several plants. Unfortunately they didn’t fare too well after I’d planted them and I was only recently wondering if she’d saved any seed. However I’ve now bought some which I hope will flourish next year.
On BBC2 Sunday at 8.00pm is Attenborough’s Journey which is a documentary following David Attenborough as he films the forthcoming First Life series. It looks back at his distinguished fifty year career as a programme maker and controller at the BBC.
Have a good weekend!
