Our lovely local stores - one just got lovelier!

We are so lucky to live in Bowes Park where there is a wealth of local stores which have been so good and kind during these troubled times.  Thank you to all the staff for being so helpful.Red Sea and Ayta in Myddleton Road - to name but two - both delivered to customers who were isolating or worried about shopping in a shop.  At no extra cost.  Yesterday Ayta installed a lovely new display area for its fruit and veg' in the front.  It looks very bright and cheerful - just what we all need.See More

Beware the honey fungus chucker

This morning I noticed a big cluster of small, pretty, pale-brown toadstools in a clump on a bit of rotten wood that had been chucked into the bed in my front garden.  Lots had also broken off and were scattered.  My son correctly suggested that it is honey fungus!Someone had chucked it into my garden to give my garden the equivalent of covid.So do check your front gardens... If you see any.....pick it up and dispose of it and then wash your hands well.Most of our neighbours are decent.... but…See More

Do you know young Archie Hall?

Someone has left young, blond Archie Hall's Year Book from Bounds Green School Nursery at Ayta Supermarket in Myddleton Road.  They would love to give it back to the owners, so pop in and do some more shopping and collect this delightful record of his last year.See More

Egret on the New River

Nature along the New River has been just beautiful this year.  The two goslings are nearly as large as their parents now, and the four punk-headed baby coots are growing bigger and have learnt to feed themselves.  The two cormorant chicks are also no longer chicks, but young adults. The smart grey heron has been a regular visitor and sadly had neglected baby ducklings for an early supper one evening.  And a lone yellow wagtail bobs along the top of the bank on the Palmers Green stretch.…See More

10 years ago I wrote a short piece for some friends about daffodils and Bounds Green. I was deleting a load of old files and found it.  As it is daffodil time again, and there are even more people here escaping wars 'back home' , I am 'sharing' it wider.
