In the time of the virus: day 96

And here we are again on the weekly merry-go-round back at Saturday. A very different day from last Saturday – from my perspective, enjoyably cooler and showery (so no need to water anything apart from the greenhouse plants).  Sadly an … Continue reading

Today was the first time since lockdown we visited one of our very favourite gardens – Heale Garden.  The weather was hot but there were enough shady places to sit in the garden to make it feel just perfect.  As … Continue reading
