Good morning, everyone. After a dry day yesterday and overnight, I need to water my pots this morning. That's a shame because we are forecast rain; however, that has changed from a weather warning of heavy rain and wind yesterday to light rain and a gentle breeze today. No storms. What a shame.
The journey home was great. Very easy and hardly any holdups at all. Once home, I sorted my things out a bit, picked a satisfying number of strawberries and the rest of the day was more or less mapped out with time in school, tuition and dinner!
I wandered out into the garden, camera in hand, a short while ago.
The runner beans are running madly and the peas have popped through. The only thing that hasn't done all that well is the blueberries, sadly. Ah, well, there has to be something, I guess.
Round the front, the two new fuchsias are flowering so must be fairly happy while other stuff is coming up, both legitimate and not. I might give it all a gently hoeing before the rain is due to start.
Today, I shall be taking things carefully. It's getting better and I certainly slept better but the back still makes its presence felt and I will not be lifting stuff or bending too much today. I do have some washing to do (didn't do it yesterday) but that's not too onerous and I ought to have a swim but I won't. The diary is blank although I do know I have tuition this afternoon, so I can take life easy and rest.
I must go and take my anti-sneeze meds - I went out to take those photos and can feel the itching beginning to build up. By the middle of July, whatever I am mildly allergic to will all be over - some unfortunate individuals react all year round which must be a miserable situation for them and I sympathise very much.
And I need my coffee. Fresh today, I think, rather than instant. My insulated cafetiere is very useful!
Have a super day. xx
