Cordon bleu

We have been lucky today. The rain has been light and intermittent. The wind only started to get up once we were heading home.

Neither stopped me pondering over the front garden as I unloaded the car. I had noticed a second snowdrop, which is inadvertently in the green as grass starts to grow under the yukka nearby. The question therefore is whether I should just throw in the towel and let the grass encroach where it likes or whether I should continue the battle to expunge it from what used to be a lawn. Some plants might like it but it would probably be in the way of the succulent expansion.

Anyway, I forgot to take a photograph, so here is one of the first meal my daughter has cooked for me which was mostly her doing the work. She’s been learning some interesting tips at school, though I think my way of peeling an onion is better!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. May your luck with the weather continue. Not so bad here at the moment, either.
