I'd love to tell you that someone hailed this cab in London and said, "Take me to Starfish Studio, I hear it's awesome", but that would be a lie.
However it is a genuine London cab driven here by a genuine London cabbie who's visiting my neighbour for a few days!

Is 'reaping' the right word? Is it only reaping when it's cut by hand with a scythe?
Whatever the word, work has started on cutting the grass in this field.
Do you 'harvest' grass? I guess it's going to be used for silage and is therefore a crop.

Yesterday the sun shone as Johnshaven held a street party to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It was a lovely chance to chill outside with a glass of wine, lots of goodies to eat and excellent company.
The highlight of the day was the Royal Dook - 5 brave queens went for a dip in the harbour to raise money for Johnshaven Primary School. They were absolutely brilliant - congratulations to Kelly Shankland, Karelia Wright, Gillian Longmuir, Linni McBay and Lauren Anderson.
There was the opportunity to make a crown with lots of materials provided in the village hall and free face painting outside.

In 2002 the BBC's Beechgrove Garden came to help develop a community garden on part of the old railway line. They were back a couple of weeks ago to see how the garden is doing ten years on, give advice and tips, visit the community composting site and plant tubs at the harbour. I don't yet know when their visit will be broadcast but I expect it'll be pretty soon
Close up of the plaque on the new bench (please excuse the reflection!).
