Morning, everyone! Another sunny start after another warm and sunny day yesterday. Absolutely no complaints from me.
I had an early morning stroll around the garden and took some more photos. I think I am going to have to copy Eileen and post one garden happy photo each day at the moment - starting tomorrow!
. . . and the Flamenco.
I've realised I totally forgot about the codling moth trap this year (ooops) and the flamenco shows signs of frost damage - a lot of the blossom died off and I've been brushing it down off the little branches.
The June drop has been and gone, I think, and I will be thinning out the apples soon.
Sorry about that - from now on, one a day! Promise. :-)
Yesterday turned out lovely. I had my early swim, the first early swim I have had for ages. The Gossip Girls were there as usual, slowly going up and down and talking nineteen to the dozen. For those who don't remember, they are a group of friends who met and used to monopolise half the width of the pool as the chatted away and went slowly up and down, making it tricky for more 'serious' swimmers. After lockdown, (when you had to go round and round singly once the gym opened again), they stopped that but now they are back. I had to smile - they were in twos but the first two were facing the back two and going backwards! They seem great buddies and are very pleasant ladies; they make me smile.
As for me, I was able to use one of the narrower lanes and managed 50 lengths - 1000m. That'll do.
Then it was home to get on with the Sunday roast for me and Alex. The pork was already in, doing slowly, so the house smelled fantastic!
Al and I enjoyed a very good old chat over lunch and into the afternoon.
And that was the day really. Once Al left, I did a bit of ironing and folded the swimming stuff that I had washed and line dried.
Today will be a gentle start - no early swim! Later on there's circuits at Lindsey's and after that I might swim or I might not. I think that, after a rigorous circuits sessions in this warm weather, a nice cool swim would be just the ticket, but I'll take my kit with me and see how I feel.
I've found someone locally who is selling her rescue hen's eggs so I am going to pick some up this evening for the first time. Nice!
And that is about it really. I think it will be a nice day and I hope yours is too. Have fun! xx
