An annoying day. Sunshine wasted on loads of housework, shopping, washing and tidying, nothing at all in the garden except for some clearing of dog mess and tidying of the patio.

But it was fun to pick hellebore flowers and arrange them on a plate with candles, and the forecast for the next couple of days has improved.


  1. Don't you just hate beautifuls days that you can't be outside! My favorite quote is "God made rainy days so gardeners could get housework done"....this is so true!

  2. I am the same way, hate to waste sunshine but sometimes we just gotta do it. Have a great weekend.

  3. Thank you both - and it was worth it. I feel ungracious now, for whingeing about it, when they were actually very nice guests and a pleasure to entertain. And the bonus is a tidy house!

  4. Doesn't that always happen! you get a wonderful sunny day when I'm at work, and it is miserable when I have a day off! grrr
