As last year we had a display of old photos in the trade stands tent which seemed to generate a lot of interest. But I have now realised that I need some more recent - and by that I mean 1980s onwards- school pictures as the pictures I have with my contemporaries on are over fifty[!!!] years old. Do send me any scans of some later photos if you can.
In the garden the rasps are ready and we have enjoyed a gooseberry pie. Last week I heard a cuckoo twice - I had given up hope of hearing one and this was certainly almost too late for the rhyme - 'In the middle of June it changes its tune And in July it flies away' but just scraped in.
My tomatoes in the greenhouse are doing well but the leaves are a bit curled - I think they need more regular food and water.
On the history front I have now received some new postcards that I bought on e bay and need to scan them into my photo library. I was very pleased to get a picture of Skelton chapel [ near Howden] and another of Saltmarshe Park but my quest for old pictures of Kilpin, Spaldington and Balkhome continues.
