Saturday 21 April 2012


It has been an awfully busy week here in Tradgardland.We attended the Requiem Mass for our Parish Priest  yesterday who has been here for around 23 years.Family probs reared up and were dealt with not to mention the grind that is work. I feel like the guy in Fritz Lang's Metropolis who stands at the clock thingy and moves the hands. I love working with the children but loath the rest of the ever increasing paperwork and pointless planning /reporting in what can almost be duplicate or even triplicate.
However it is Earlyish Saturday Morning and the weekend awaits. Much to do but I have two plans. Firstly to work on some 17th century Scots in 54mm and secondly  to get in a small 18th century game.I will let you know how I get on. Finally a picture of some flowers currently looking resplendent in the garden photographed on a much brighter day than today.


  1. Sounds like a hectic week. Sun is shining here so a busy day at t'mill looks likely. Enjoy your weekend and looking forward to seeing the 54mm Scots.
    Nice specimens of Fritillaria meleagris in your garden.

  2. Sorry to hear that you have had a crappy week my friend. That is a lovely photo so full of the joys of spring and I look forward to hearing about your battle.

    Long live Tradgradland

  3. Mmmm, it seems to me that our age we are the filling in the sandwich of the generations! You have my sympathy. I see Springinsfeld's got in there with the proper name. I'll volunteer the common - snakeshead frittillry.
