In the garden, May for me means iris Siberica and alliums plus a frantic scramble to clear out, pot on, plant out and this year also water. As if we need another job. But it mainly means celebrating the life of my sister who gave me these gorgeous iris 20 years ago as a rough clump from her garden. They are here, as beautiful as ever today; if only the same were true of Louisa ____________________________________________ #muchmissed#19years

It was a lovely early start to the day with breakfast in bed made by Harry👨🍳, then Andy took Jonty off to his match🏏, I headed out for a quick walk around the fields and took this photo of a neighbour's beautiful house and now I'm about to take Felix off to his match🏏. All go in the Denham Household this morning!🤗
The majesty of Mt Machapuchare, even when it’s shrouded behind a cluster of clouds The glow on the peak is from the setting sun, as seen from the High Camp of the Mardi Himal Trek. At 3600m, this is the highest that we ventured and the views all around were simply fabulous! We’ll share some more in the coming days. Meanwhile, have a great weekend y’all!
This race will forever be epic for me. My first 25km in trails. But what makes this one so damn epic was the crazy ass weather conditions that we all endured that day. 🐾
Torrential rain + lightening-thunderstorms. Like I thought for sure this race was going to get cancelled! Oh no, not for all these tough runners who all showed up doing distances as long as 100 miles.
First lightening hits at around km 5, my phone gets all wonky. From there on, I'm listening to the same 6 songs over-and-over again for 2.5 hours 🤯
Let's talk about mud + puddles - it was like a tough mudder swamp. We were all struggling with our footing to avoid slipping + wiping out. 🐾
Just before reaching a very hilly part of the course at 17km, I wipe out hard. Face first in mud. Wind knocked out of me! Knees banged up. I had to get my adult ass back up. Barely could see though my eyes, tried to wipe that mud off + got up + kept going... It wasn't pretty let me tell ya!!!
For a new trail runner, this was tough - suffer factor was at an ultimate high. In some insane way - I LOVED it. I now get why these runners were out there! A true test of your mental game.
Sulphur Springs 25km - 12th place female. I'll take it 😄
