If St Paul’s day (29 June) be fair and clear
It does betide a happy year.
But if it chance to snow or rain
Then will be dear all kinds of grain.
If clouds or mists do dark the sky
Great store of birds and beasts shall die.
And if the winds do file aloft
Then war shall vex the kingdom oft.
It is heartbreaking for me to close my business again (the same day I opened), but due to a break-in in my van, and having my tools STOLEN, I am having to CLOSE AGAIN!
Apologies to everyone affected.
To Whom it may concern:
THERE ARE NO TOOLS LEFT FOR YOU TO STEAL!
I WILL NOT BE REPLACING MY TOOLS FOR YOU TO STEAL AGAIN!
ALL CCTV FOOTAGE AND WITNESS DETAILS HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO THE POLICE!
Just a quick update regarding my services and COVID-19:-
I am pleased to tell you that I am now open again for my gardening services.
It has been a very difficult period for us all, but I truly cannot wait to ‘get gardening’ again.
So.…….Thank you for your patience, and stay safe everyone!
Summer Solstice is the first day of Summer!
It is also the longest day of the year (…..and the shortest night of the year).
It was a medieval custom to collect flowers on the longest day (ie for their healing properties). Typically, Apothecaries would gather herbs on this day (eg St John’s Wort, Chamomile, Geraniums, and Thyme).
To celebrate, they would light a bonfire and dance around it. Flowers collected on this day would release their fragrant aromas when thrown on bonfire (to eradicate bad luck and negative energy).
