Today has been another good day.
Sunshine ... mostly... and warming up a little.
A stroll into town this morning to buy the newspaper, milk and a couple of pecan twists to go with coffee. We also popped into the Farmers Combine shop on the quayside and bought a small pot of parsley for the kitchen windowsill.
The seeds I sowed in my bargain kitchen trough have germinated. I think I may have sown too many ....
We spent the afternoon gardening. P was moving the grass turf the railwaymen dug up for us and using it to fill in some dead spots under the trees. He said we should have bought a house on a flat plot as he puffed past me up the drive with a loaded wheelbarrow.
I was deadheading tulips and cutting back the rose bushes until the hay fever got the better of me and drove me indoors.
A propos of nothing, this candlestick was originally a ceramic electrical insulator from an overhead power line .
P found it in the garden, cleaned it up and it now sits on our hall shelf. (Northsider.. more upcycling!)
P's friend arrived a little while ago to drop off some courgette plants for the garden and they have both now gone to the pub for a pint.
I have popped open a bottle of fizz and am enjoying a peaceful hour or so whilst a goat stew is gently bubbling away on the stove and enjoying looking out at the late afternoon sun on the trees.
