And another Saturday round up from the end of the lane
The first Hollyhocks from the mini cutting garden and a chance to use my Big Jug.
Half an hour after taking this photo the whole lot were drooping, so I googled and found I should have conditioned them first by filling up their hollow stems with water and plugging the bottom with cotton wool. A bit too "faffy" for me for cut flowers! I'm going to move them all out of the cut flower garden in the Autumn into the quarter circle flower garden and try something else for cut flowers. I Live and Learn!
I've had a funny ol' week. Starting Sunday morning feeling under the weather and wading through treacle (not literally.... obviously) and so cold on Tuesday. I got all the grass cut with ride on and small mowers and my usual weekly swim - but had to have frequent rests. Tired, aching and getting more lethargic as the week progressed but it's given me time to watch lots of tennis (and read).
I'm very excited about being able to watch the cricket world cup final on TV. Colin loved cricket and listened to TMS on radio whenever he could, he would have so enjoyed being able to see the final. I shall watch it on his behalf and "tell" him about it.
I've been really lax at commenting on other folks blogs....apologies......mainly because I try not to look at lap top screen after 7 or 8pm and lots of people post in the evenings so I don't see them until next morning when it seems almost too late to comment especially if other people have already written what I would have said anyway!
This week I'm grateful for.............
Food in the cupboard and freezer so I didn't have to go shopping all week
Raspberries and vegetables from the garden for the same reason.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. I really have to pop out for shopping today, still no energy but once I'm home again I can stay at home for several days.
