Saturday

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the weekend.  As BBC predicted, we had some horrible weather yesterday.  Horrible if you were going out, that is, but great for worms, ducks and the garden and I am sure farmers were most thankful.

I ummed and ahed about whether to walk to Morrisons or take the car as the clouds had gathered and it was getting darker and darker.  I decided to walk, wrapped up well and set off, bag containing things for the Salvation Army drop off point in hand, and was very fortunate that it was only drizling until I got there, when it started raining harder.  I did my bit of shopping and came out to find it had eased off a bit.  Then, when I got home, the heavens opened.
I really was very lucky!

I had similar luck later on.  Those beans haven't come up, despite several stern warnings, so I drove off to the garden centre to buy some plantlets.  There they were, looking just as healthy as they had done the last time I was there so I got them and I also got some pea seeds (Kelveden Wonder), some garden twine (I was out of it) and a few other garden bits and bobs.  No more plants though.  It was raining hard there and back but, as soon as I got in, the rain stopped and the sun came out for just long enough to let me get them planted out before it started again.  How's that for good fortune!  No need to water them in whatsoever and this morning they look very cheerful and are winding themselves happily around their supports.

I got the peas because I so enjoyed those I had for dinner the other day that I thought I'd so something similar myself, just in pots, and see what happens.  With any luck, I will get a tasting all the way through August/September, if I stagger the sowing over the rest of June.  It says on the pack that they are particularly good for June sowing so . . . well, we shall see and if it doesn't work I have only lost a few pounds.  The soil can be recycled!

On to today and I was going to accompany Beth to a school fair where she has a table for Kitty Stitches, but then remembered that I have someone coming at ten to repair my garden gates which have dropped and are hard to open and close, so I can't.
Then, weather permitting, I will dig out (no pun intended) one of my garden pots and sow some pea seeds.
I have one load of washing which will have to dry indoors and, seeing as Beth won't need the sewing machine, I might bring it down and have a bit of a sew.  Maybe, anyway!

Have a great day and stay dry!  xx

  1. You were very lucky with the showers yesterday and I think today is going to be a similar showery one

    1. I really was. I've just been out the back to tie up the escaping clematis and the tomatoes (the wind is very gusty) and it's both wet and rather chilly. Not a pleasant morning at all. Having said that, the clouds do seem to be lifting in the west so fingers crossed.

  2. It's very satisfying bring able to complete errands before the rains come. I had been at work yesterday morning but arrived home just in time to bring my washing indoors before the heavens opened. X

  3. Gloomy, wet and cold here this morning. I've just twiddled the thermostat to put the heating on for an hour to warm things up a bit - no boot sale today.
    :-(

    1. Me too - it felt so chilly. A shame about the sale but it wouldn't have been much fun in this weather.

  4. It's wet and windy here, too windy to attempt dealing with the membrane in the garden so I'm going to do a bit of tidying up on the centre bed and then shut the outside out for the rest of the day! I may have to put the heating on for a while.

    1. Very wise. Even without the rain, it's not great!

  5. We're having a lot of rain here, as well. After many sunny and hot days in a row we need it. My flowers on the porch are doing really well and I'm especially enjoying my dianthus and lantana flowers. Have a great Saturday!
