Trouble in the garden yesterday evening - the bean fence fell over! Under-engineering, basically, plus very healthy beans this year. We got it part of the way back up, and are hoping it will hold for the remaining 5-6 weeks before our usual mid-September frost. Must do better next year!

The last two days I've been writing, but not on The Druid's Son. With all of the storytelling we did over the weekend, I felt the need to expand my repertoire, and decided to try and pick up an old Irish tale I heard Patrick Ball tell ten or twelve years ago. By googling a couple of phrases, I found the original story on line, and have been working up my own version. With luck I might have it ready for the Long's Peak Highland Games in September. My version is somewhat different from both the original and what little I can remember of Patrick's - I added bits and took out bits, as one does, to adapt the tale to the anticipated audience - but I think it's shaping up well. I might post it here by and by if there's interest.

Back to work...
