Speedy and his treasure hunt in the garden!

Speedy has been finding Treasure in the garden this week.He has been digging and biting down weeds and some of my Poppies and Forget me Knots which is not quite so good but never mind they will grow back.Here's part of the garden before Speedy's adventure.


And this is the treasure that Speedy found!A Ships half penny,a 2 shilling coin,and 3 six pence's did you know Six pence's are considered lucky and that they used to be put in the Christmas pudding for luck!

George 5th Sterling Silver Six Pence from 1912

George 5th 50% silver Six Pence from 1933!
George the 5th 50% silver Six Pence from 1936!

    1. Hi Auntie Jane,its all lovely the garden the coins the weather,the weather is only going to rubishy for a couple of days then it should be good friday and the week end again fingers crossed,as for the boys working together on this its very nice but I don't want my garden dug up anymore and this was an accident.and they can leave the front garden alone as there are wild tunneling bees nesting and the bees need looking after as they are on the decline.so I'm careful about what gardening jobs I do out there till the end of the summer and the autumn.xxRachel

    2. Rachel, I didn't know there was such a creature as a wild tunneling bee. The living friends we share this planet with are just a never ending source of surprise and joy. I am so glad your watch out for them. We used to have bees here, but no more. I really miss them. I like to look at the BBC page on the internet. They have a Nature/Science page, and recently some new frogs have come to light. Wonderful! Rachel, something else wonderful has happened. I got Speedy's card! There is no way, for me anyway, to explain how beautiful it is "in person." The picture just can't do justice to all the layers and colours and textures. The card is incredibly beautiful. And, what can be said about the picture of the sweet boy floating in the middle of it? It is breathtaking. The separate picture of Speedy is a treasure. Thank you for covering it. I spend a lot of time smooching it. I know that lovely package of white fur was humanly gathered, but Fen still thinks there should be some sort of certification process. Thank you so much, Rachel. It is one of the real treasures of my life. Please tell my Nephew that he is my favorite nephew anywhere and that I will always love him and wish he lived next door. Nose Kisses to Everyone and Everybody Remember, there is no true happiness without a bunny. AJ

    3. Jane open the photo there is more than one for you to adore and if Fen wants a certificate well then I will create one just for you.Don't forget to ask Fen to set up the Skype for you then you can meet Speedy properly,you know one day you will have to come over for a holiday,I know Speedy would love that and I would too,xx Rachel

    4. More than one picture to adore! Swoons! Swoons again! Swoons again, but begins to drag herself across the floor...She will see those pictures of her Nephew if it is the last thing she ever does...(stay tuned)...

    1. Thanks Ann,I'll tell Speedy.the silver sxpence in the pudding is an old tradition in the UK it doesn't happen very much now as most people buy the Christmas pudding instead of making it as it take a while to make as it has to be steamed for hours before its ready,xx Rachel
