Clocks changed… Cold out… It’s BULBS O’CLOCK!

Spring may seem like a long way off, but now’s the perfect time to get the garden kneelers out and plant some tulips and daffs to brighten up the garden next year. The soil’s sufficiently cooled from the warmth of summer, the first visits from Jack Frost are yet to occur which means the temperature is ‘just right!’ as Goldilocks would say.

To make life easier, we’ve browsed the web and unearthed a handful of sites for some very useful hints and tips…

Park + Trikes = WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!

Anorak and friends decided to hit Dulwich Park this fine autumn sunday for some fun, food and frolics. And after a delicious full English breakfast in the park cafe, we decided to pedal off the calories by hiring out some trikes courtesy of London Recumbants. The boys got carried away, the girls got lost and great fun was had by all…

Err... How do I pedal this thing?

Skim it, we dare you

Here at Anorak, we appreciate how tricky and time consuming it can be scouring the pebble beach for that perfect skimmer to toss at the oncoming waves. You know the type, round, smooth, flat (but not too flat so it catches the water and flips). Well imagine the delight of uncovering one of these amazing gold beauties by artist Dominic Wilcox.

 

One, two, three... Oh no it's sunk!

One, two, three... Oh no it's sunk!

Each one is a hand picked by Dominic for its perfect skimmable shape, comes in a made to measure leather belt pouch and is leaved in 24ct gold. Metal detectors at the ready.

 

At least the pouch didn't sink

P.S. A big thanks to our friend Jane for opening our eyes to these delightful pebbles.

Who’s got a lovely bunch of…

Chestnuts?
We have, courtesy of our friendly next door neighbour Tracy. After a squirrelish weekend collecting chestnuts at her caravan she suprised us all with an afternoon visit and a big bag of chestnuts.
Cripes, is it that time of year already? 

 

Mmmmm....

Mmmmm....

Cathy likes them. Laurie clearly likes them. Whisper the stuffed owl's not so sure...
