Today we were blessed with glorious sunshine. I am strongly influenced by sunlight - I go a bit mad and spend all day smiling! (Fortunately I don't get depressed when it's dull, I'm just less zaney then.)
First off a couple of flowers. I've shown pictures of both of these little ones before but they are really blooming well now:
- and this next one seems to glow with light, even in a gloomy corner:
It was also the first day I felt it was worth putting out the whirlygig (I'm afraid as usual this is a warts and all photo - there is of course a huge amount of tidying to do about the place)
I went to feed the fish, waking up and very hungry, but gave it a few minutes longer so that this pair could have a bit of peace:
Then I got on with putting away all the clutter I'd spread over the lawn (from the greenhouse) and tidied up the lawn as best I could, and then... I mowed it. This would have made more difference if I'd lowered the blade a bit more but never mind. And here it is afterwards. The whole things still has loads of weeding to do, and maybe looks rather unappealing - but it will look wonderful in a couple of months' time, I promise!
Then finally after supper I soaked two lots of morning glory and one of ranunculus. I find it hard to believe these little dry spidery things will become the plants I remember loving before, and in so little time, but I hope so.
Bob wondered what the next project is. Ha! Tomorrow I will be tackling this, which is our garage:
