Blue Ginger

IMG_20160723_113146

The bread has gone green again, so it is a breadless breakfast outside in the sun this morning.

IMG_20160723_120743

I’m not alone though. A bird has joined me.

IMG_20160723_120749

I admire the garden. Somethings grow, somethings don’t.

IMG_20160723_120737

My parents come round and sit in the sunshine with me. It is nice.

IMG_20160723_122439

And wow some of my loopins are growing. at last.IMG_20160723_142006

We get in my car now with the air con working cold and head to Wickes where I buy some paint. Good god this stuff is expensive. So 2 small tins later and £33 lighter we go into town shopping with my mom. And after a lot of shopping we settle for going into the Famous George & Berties for something to eat. Our first time here.

Google for some reason doesn’t seem to know about this place. I put it right.

IMG_20160723_133332

A traditional dinner style place where you can eat and drink at the central bar or sit at a table.

IMG_20160723_133059

We order and await the food from the todays special board.

IMG_20160723_133631

There are no fancy meals here. Just wholesome stodge.

IMG_20160723_133637

Nice done and tasty.

IMG_20160723_133647

My mom has ham and new potatoes with parsley sauce and peas. The price doesn’t break the bank and the portions are big, although you can have smaller dishes.

At the church there is a wedding going on. We are nosey.

IMG_20160723_143329

They have a horse drawn carriage with something blue.

This week I didn’t get my plants from the flower shop. I got them from the Green grocer's Jessica’s. This is a Japanese Rose.

IMG_20160723_195249

Very pretty, although it looks nothing like a rose.

IMG_20160723_195318

I plant some very fragrant lavender.

IMG_20160723_195322

And try to get the sweat peas looking updwards.

IMG_20160723_195330

It will smell so nice here as the wind passes up my drive.

IMG_20160723_195340

Mean while I have lots of plant action. I will have to consider planting soon.

IMG_20160726_195030

And with that I get the paint out. Its special exterior paint that when it dries, it dries with holes in it. To allow the wood and paint to breath and hence not blister. Guaranteed for some 5 years!

IMG_20160723_195310

And do the door grey. Erm looks nice in grey.

IMG_20160723_201314

I mow my lawn.

IMG_20160724_185322

I mow the neighbor's lawn.

PANO_20160723_200731

And then I relax. The bank is growing well. The bank is growing too well!

PANO_20160723_200752

Eventually my brother comes round

IMG_20160723_200712

I turn on some garden music and

IMG_20160723_200825

have a beer.

IMG_20160723_201945

And then another, whilst we or I complentate where we should go for a late night tea. I suggest somewhere new that has a walk involve to get our appetite going once we reach there, rather than heading to Chadsmore.

IMG_20160723_212135

It is a walk, but a pleasant one on such a warm evening. We head into the Blue Ginger.

IMG_20160723_212957

The poppadum's are served.

IMG_20160723_213052

The pints of Kingfisher beer and the onion salad and hot sauces.

IMG_20160723_214817

We have a sharing meat platter for starters.

IMG_20160723_214806

ohh yeah

IMG_20160723_220949

And for mains we both have a chicken Jalfrezia and plain nan. You will notice the lack of a Balti dish.

IMG_20160723_215511

Eventually wit full bellies it is time to leave.

Screenshot_20160723-223735

Outside I look for Pokémon. There are no around though.

IMG_20160723_232000

As we have to walk past the local White Lion pub we go in for beer. It is quiet. We sit at the bar and talk to the locals, who are keen to find out where I’m from.

IMG_20160723_231720

I explain I live opposite the Piped Piper Pub but no matter how many beers I drank I couldn’t keep the place going.

IMG_20160724_002823

Eventually we reached my own garden.

IMG_20160723_235040

And make it a beer garden.

IMG_20160724_002930

At about 1:30am though we call it a night and head on in to bed.
