Cake day

cake day 027I am truly green with envy having taken part in the Chelsea Fringe Cake Day in the street they call Veg Street where friends, neighbours, homeowners (and tenants, Dan) all got together to grow things in their front gardens and around trees. One of the organisers, Naomi has written a book about it and has an excellent blog called OutOfMyShed.

These beautiful alliums interspersed with veg are just a small sample of the lovely things to look at and admire. There was a gardening-themed disco in this garden – hence the glitter balls – where I performed a short selection of songs from the show.

It was a great event and I got to meet some lovely people including three charming Chelsea pensioners. cake day 023One of them was telling me about meeting Alan Titchmarsh because everyone has met him except me!

There was a competition for the best tree pit, which has inspired me to renew my efforts with the tree pits that I have been guerrilla gardening in MY street and, of course, a topiary demonstration by “the elephant man” aka Topiary Tim. Here he is making an owl to perch next to his elephants, technically a giant owl as big as an elephant, which is quite a scary concept.cake day 020 Dan would like the elephant hedge as it features a baby elephant and also a pile of topiary elephant dung.

  • First off I want to say terrific blog! I had
    a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

  • Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?

    My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look
    forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
