S. D. Bell’s Tea

One of the simple pleasures of life on a dull December afternoon, with the bad news of another impending lockdown, and Christmas restrictions – a nice cup of S.D.Bell’s ‘Natural Leaf Tea,’ freshly brewed; golden brown and full of flavour.

One of my favourite local tastes!

The Lockdown Logs

Dateline: May 6th 2020

There’s a certain beauty in freshly ploughed fields, they speak of a new beginning, of spring and new growth and a new start.  Word has just trickled down from Downing Street that there may be an easing of the Lockdown on Monday.  that would be good news for us, and perhaps a new start!

This idyllic horticultural scene was outside Comber just earlier today.
