Periwinkle Growing Wild

Hello Everyone

Its me again with another brief post. 

I just wanted to show you this bank of periwinkles spotted yesterday just by the bridge I have to cross on my way to the nearest corner shop.

It's growing wild on an embankment on what is our local community nature reserve. I suspect that we have to thank local gardeners for tipping their garden waste for this pretty sight. 

Yes, I live just a few yards from a nature reserve! How lucky is that? 

It was established some years ago by the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) in the old Caledonian Railway cutting at Ardrossan. No longer run by SWT it has become quite neglected and the old line is too overgrown to be accessible to walkers. Fortunately, that doesn't stop me enjoying the view from the bridge.

What Was On My Desk

Hello Everyone

As has become my usual I'm once again too late for Julia's weekly desk fest over on the Stamping Ground. Things here at Casa Worthington are still very unsettled, difficult even, so this will be a very brief post but one that's well overdue. 

And it's to thank Julia for this lovely ATC and card received after the 14th WOYWW Anniversary. I wasn't able to join in this year but I appreciate the thought. It arrived on a day when I was feeling particularly down and it cheered me up to feel I'm still part of this wonderful community.

Thank you Julia. 

And thank you ladies for allowing me to stay involved despite not turning up weekly for now.
