Yesterday the sun shone and there was no cold wind. Everything stood up straight and smiled in the warmth and the birdsong was glorious.
We received a phone call at breakfast, the firm scheduled to see us next month had had a cancellation, they were in the area, could they come round in twenty minutes? Yes they could.
So now we are prepared to be a little bit greener because we have our own power point in the garage for charging an electric car!
The hedge on our northern boundary is kept well clipped, but this spring the spiky, prickly section of it has evaded the demon barber and burst into blossom. I think it looks lovely. "DON'T cut it back just yet!"
So Himself concentrated on giving the bay tree a bit of a haircut instead.
Today it is bitterly cold and I've only had the briefest possible foray into the garden to pick some flowers.
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
