Changes

I love taking my trundle truck into Caistor!  I see people I know and have a chat, people I don't know smile and say hello, and I can call on Auntie Hettie and catch up on the news.  She's totally housebound now but she is still a fount of knowledge on all things local.

It would be easy to think that nothing changes but it does.  Here are some photos to prove it.

Here it is in June last year
This is my favourite bank of flowers.  

Then in March this year

And this week but from the other end. Aquilegias rule OK.
This is the work of volunteers.  Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.  You make Caistor a lovely place to live.

  1. Is Caistor the village you live in, or a retirement home?

  2. Caistor is the lovely village/town I retired to eight years ago. If you click on the label "Caistor" you will find other posts about this lovely place in which I live.

  3. How delightful to have an Aunt Hettie to call on! Must be that many others call on her too.... Since she keeps up to date on all the happenings!!!! :-)

    What wonderful volunteer work those ladies do.

    Such village pride!

    1. Auntie Hettie is 93 and has lived here since she got married. A lot of people pop in to see her and her daughter (who lives with her) is very involved in he community.

    1. Good for you - the car park bank is pretty isn't it. No this one is one Cromwell View, just beyond the church. But you've reminded me that I haven't had a look at the carpark flowers yet this year. I think that bank is maintained by the crocosmia garden next door.
