Another month of lots of reading but not much reviewing. I finished my N.E.W.T.s for Magizoologist though and I’ll be posting a wrap-up with mini reviews soon as well as some more in-depth reviews later. In the meantime you can see my star ratings at least.
Pictured above is a mini succulent garden I made with a cracked oven dish, planted up with sempervivum.
Josh made awesome pickled courgettes with our home grown veg. They are a bit like gherkins, and it’s so nice having some alternative ways of using up courgettes. We’re also deluged by cucumbers at the moment and have a bunch of long aubergines forming. I love having veg in the garden but it’ll be sad when it’s all died down again.
Can you believe Scully is three years old already? She’s sort of quietened down a bit now but she still gets over-excited when her favourite people visit.
