New upgrade made delay–year 4

Catching up March, April and May’s updates….

The new upgrade of the computer made all delay to upload the posts. It is real nice to have the new gadgets… new upgrade and I have been looking forward to have it… then it all comes to a halt as I have to get it familiar and to search for files here and there… my my, it is a long trip back to normal mode….. (still worth the trouble)..

March, April and even May comes and gone….

Japan’s earthquake and tsunami hit it hard to earth planet in March…. sadden by so many lost lives…

April…it is not fair but it is…we have joyful moment here in England… the Royal Wedding… it cheers up you and I…

May… Bin Laden at long last being caught and paid for his crime… how one human being can inflict so many pain to other human beings and created so much ruins and thinks that he can get away of the crime….. history told us all that is impossible…

My favourite HK dj has been sacked unfairly according from news…. I missed my routine to hear his programme on radio….

We have a dry Spring this year… climate change is the answer…. from March, April and early May we have plenty sunshine and dry heat…. even have forest fires caused by the dry weather…. made most people think England turn to down under…

Easter was late till 22 of April…. by that time I have already planted out all my this year’s potatoes… started from end of March…

Potatoes

Bed 2: Arron Pilot and Winston, both First Early…

Bed 8: Sante, Early Main crop

Bed 11: Desiree, Early Main crop and Cara, the Late Main crop….

Bed 7 (top half, 3 short rows): Desiree

Bed 13 (near compost bin, 1 short row): Cara

During April they are gradually sprouts and shooting out through the soil, just like the hymn Now the green blade rises….. finally during the last week of May I have dug out couple Arron Pilot to taste the new potatoes, though they are still in the small fist size and some even tinnier… but the new earth sweet taste is heaven…

Spring Flowers

Since we have a dry Spring, most the potted flowers look a bit tired, those on the ground looks a bit better but still they seems just have a short bloom then wilted away… here are some of my best… Primrose, Tulips and Wallflowers are planted last Autumn and the Roses have been here since we move in here, give them a feed during the growing seasons and tidy up (a slight prune) at the end of the season and they just up come again year after year (more than 20 years)…long live the Roses…
