I think this week it is time we went back to have a look in the greenhouse and see what is growing. I must admit I planed the seeds a little early but that aside they grew and most of them are doing well
These are various tomato plants
Bit of a mixture on this one
And the last one has more tomato plants
More Alicante and beside them are pots which contain Runner beans. My wife saved some seeds from Sugar Drop tomato and another she called Prunellas Itsy witsy tomato seeds which are also growing well. I also have beef tomato growing. Most of them will be given away as I will only be growing a few of the strongest ones I have shown, I do not have room for them all
I will leave you to ponder this, What do you think I am going to make with this wood, I show the answer in another blog.

This week the church explorer returns to St John the Baptist Stanton St John because he forgot to post photos of the inside, could be to do with the fact I have taken on looking after Inspired Sunday as well. Please take the time to look around this wonderful old church.

You you spotted my WW Blog on Wednesday you will have noticed the swan
Zooming back a little gave a bigger view behind
Stand back and the swan had stuck it's head in the water but there was a nice blue sky with a few clouds behind
As we were staying the night I let the dog out and looked up to see the moon over the hills in the distance. Happy Skywatch

After some of the replies I had last week about the thatched cottages I though you might like to see how it is done. Blewbury is along the road from where I live and I used to pass though the village on my way to work. There are a few Thatched cottages along the road I went and a barn. Here is some of what you can see. the blog is a bit picture heavy as there is a lot to see.
One of the cottages
Typical chocolate box cottage with roses
One with a thatched wall
They are called Cob walls and are thatched to keep the rain off as the cob is made of mud, horse manure and straw
The new thatch is placed on the old stuff underneath which is compacted down over the years
It is a very skilled job with is dying out

Last year I purchased a new camera changing from my old Canon EOS70D DSLR which was a crop camera meaning the sensor was not full size like on the old 35mm SLR's. I decided to upgrade to a new Canon EOS R6 DSLR mirror-less camera which was a full frame version. The camera came with a new mount that meant I would need new lenses though at least Canon made an adaptor to take the old lenses. I purchased the camera with the standard lens that came with it which was 20mm-105mm. this was a reasonable wide angle zoom. I id like how the camera responded and the lens was good enough for most things I did but I felt the zoom length did not quite do what I needed so I ordered a new longer zoom which was 24mm-240mm, the wide angle was the same but it gave a little more reach on the zoom. In March I took the new lens out for try as day or so after getting it.
