Sunday 4th March 2018 - Roads Open, Peter Pan and The Thaw

Monday 12th March 2018 - Stocked Up and Picking the Beach

After driving down to Mundesley on Friday morning for fish, meat, fruit and vegetables, we stopped off at the Garden Centre in the village to stock up on potting compost and grow bags. We just about managed to get it all in the car and still leave room for Barney but he did have a grow bag in the foot well between him and the back of the driving seat. I have now been able to finish planting the broad bean and flower seeds and pot on begonias, lillies and agapanthus. The broad beans I planted last week are showing signs of shoots coming up through the compost and the both varieties of tomato seeds have germinated in the propagator.

Sunday morning, although cloudy, it was not windy, the temperature was pleasant and with a low tide, it was ideal for a walk on the beach. There are still remains of dead crabs which perished during the recent easterly winds, rough seas and high tides which have subsequently washed up along with seaweed and plenty of other flotsam and jetsam. We picked up an assortment of rubbish:- 3 balls, 2 shoes, strap, 2 cans, 2 buckets, tub, 5 sweet wrappers, sock, microfibre cloth, 2 plastic cups, 2 plastic gloves, plastic fork, 2 pieces of paper, 2 lengths of rope, a piece of fabric, fishing line, milk carton seal, toy, j-cloth, and wait for it ……… 36 pieces of assorted plastic of various shapes and sizes. The total weight was 4.57kgs. All this rubbish was generated by man. What can I say, except what a disgusting species the human race is; we don’t deserve to exist on this beautiful planet!
