Another beautiful day, following on from yesterdays amazing almost summer like day! Blue skies, no clouds, and the herbaceous borders looking a little more full at last.Max our german shepherd was worn out after chasing me around with the lawn mower. Stimpy our male cat, decided he liked the summerhouse (we call him shed boy, as he has been known to be locked in neighbours sheds and outbuildings fast asleep for up to 13 hours at a time while we have been frantically searching for him!) Pinched some pics from Kates facebook of Stimpy asleep on my wicker sofa in the summerhouse.
Well at least you can get some closeups of one of my favourite fabrics, Jane Churchills Fairford, a beautiful duck egg linen with Rosa Mundi roses on. Stimpy agrees it is very beautiful! It was 85 degrees all day inside the summerhouse with the doors open. Son Damon is building some new glass/perspex doors for me, so will post pics of the summerhouse when the doors are finished.
Had a heron scare about an hour ago, while walking back from the local post office, the heron flew from my garden across the field above my head....I panicked and ran back (well hobbled with my sciatica!) only to find the fish all alive and well. The pond netting over and around has obviously put the heron off thank goodness!
