Now for a little light relief... this is to help my Northern Hemisphere Readers feel a little warmer.. This was taken at approximately 6.00 pm last night.
It was a beautiful day yesterday. I was up very early and out in the garden before The Scot had woken.
But there was a lot to do.
This is the fish pond area. From the Dragon Fountain I had removed the pebbles. emptied the container, which was buried underneath, cleaned it out, refilled, washed the pepples and then left it running (and I think I left it too long, as it won't work now, but I will try to fix it before telling The Scot).
He had cleaned the filter in the fishpond. I pruned and weeded and moved a couple of plants (just can't help myself)
Then onto the other seedbed facing the kitchen window. The yellow flowers on the climber last for most of the summer, and these are my lilies. Originally bought as Christmas lilies (the label said they would flower for Christmas Day. The first year they did, then for the past 3 years they have flowered mid November. But it must be all the rain we have had, because the buds are only just forming. I think they might make Christmas Day. They look wonderful when in flower, but unfortunately don't last very long.
Just a quick peek at the two patios and garden. The Christmas Things have been added. We spend many hours on these two patios.
Now, I must show you this. Since retirement The Scot has taken over the mowing of the lawns, well grass really. But he has this aversion to doing the edges. Unfortunately that's one of the things I really like done. Well the last half dozen times I had rushed out and done them.
