A Little Something for the Lockdown

There’s still some colour to be found in an English garden, even in November. 

Have a safe second lockdown!

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    So pretty! Colour is a thing of the past on this side of the pond… well pretty much so!

      Thanks Dale. I was surprised to see the hypericum bloom again but always glad to see a splash of yellow in the garden. And the Penstemon was disappointing during the summer but has put on a late display before dying back for the winter. Winter is usually fairly mild on the Dorset coast, so there’s always something to cheer us up in November. Stay safe. x

  2. Thanks! I needed that. 🙂 In Arizona, things are apparently having their second blooming after the ultra heat of summer. We’ve been watching “The Great British Baking Show.” Do you ever watch that? Is it something shown only in the US? Anyway, it’s lots of fun and my crazy husband is planning a fancy signature bake over Christmas with our younger daughter. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂 Hope you’re both well.

      Hi, it’s good to have some colour at this time of the year isn’t it? No, I don’t watch cookery programmes – we’re not great cake-eaters, and most of the other culinary programmes seem to concentrate on ‘calorie-rich’ recipes. We’ve been enjoying the late Vuelta and Gira though. I’m sure you’ll have been watching that. 🙂


      • I wish I’d been watching them. When we moved, we decided not to get cable, so I can’t catch them on TV, although the Giro isn’t shown here as far as I know. My brother’s been recording stages of the Vuelta for me to watch with him when I’m feeling better. Next year I’ll get the NBC package again where I can watch on my laptop or tablet. I really miss them. Saw bits and pieces of the Tour, which was rather exciting this year.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
