Friends & Family

It's time for friends and family to take their rightful priority and for me to take a little blog break for the next few days. My post for ABC Wednesday will appear as scheduled and your daily fix of Veg Plotting will return in time for Garden Bloggers' Muse Day on August 1st. Who knows if I'll need to take the advice from the pictured leaflet before then ;)

Take care and see you soon!


  1. Excuse me but haven't you only just got back from swanning around Norfolk? Honestly, no dedication, these youngsters...!
    Have a great break.

  2. enjoy your time away from the blogosphere. I guess we do have to interact with 'real' people occassionally and pretend they're more important than our blogs ;)

  3. Have fun and bring us back great plant stories.

  4. Have a lovely time! gail

  5. Bon voyage! At this time of the year time away from the blog is inevitable - and I speak from recent experience.

  6. Thanks for your good wishes everyone and James, yes aren't I lightweight - going away and only leaving posts for half the time I'm away. Tsk. Standards are slipping around here ;)
