This week the Church Explorer visits St Mary Thatcham a rather nice church which is near the centre of the town
Unlike many of you I missed the sunrise on the summer solstice but I did not miss the sunset, well I did most of it and only realised it had gone down when I went upstairs around 9:40 but the sky looked so nice I though it worth capturing
I had a few things I could post today but in the end thought I would take you on a walk in a churchyard I visited the other day. In fact I have been here twice, fist time I could only go around the outside of the church the second I went inside as it was open. As I had time to spare I took another walk around the churchyard which as you will see is not quite what you think it would look like.
The next tome I came it was really long and you could not see the gravestones but they had cut paths to walk along
Over on the fences you can make out the drawing of a fox
some where over there is a drawing of a badger
Near the entrance a notice that explains all and what you can see
I found walking around it quite peaceful and tranquil under the tree canopy
The churchyard runs along the side of the church as well, I might add the north side of the church the grass is cut but then that is near the roadside
The trees you can see in the churchyard
and the Bees
who were busy, I've seen beehives in other churchyards
Towards the end of May one Friday Evening I looked out and noticed the sky, ideal skywatch I thought
Thought I would show a quick garden update with you
Quick way of showing some of it is with a collage, these are the roses I planted a while ago in new beds and a pot, they are growing well and smell gorgeous
This one is a climber and is waiting for me to find somewhere for it to go
Some of the veg now or fruit which ever way you look at it. Runner beans have taken off and the tomatoes are showing flowers
Looking in the greenhouse you cannot help be confronted by Tomatoes
Cucumbers are really growing with quite a bit of fruit showing
Bit more that I can say about my Chillies which I am still trying to work out when I should sew the seed. The other plants are some flower seed I started a wile ago and seem to be doing OK.
This week I go mack to mid May where I went out for a quick walk one evening which took in a route along an old footpath
I'll start here a DIY store in Abingdon where I went earlier in the day. It has been built on the site of the old one that was here a few years ago. I was told at the time they would not be coming back. Seems someone thought different.
