As well as cutting both the lawns, the front border has been hoed and weeded, some more hellebore babies from 'Tutu' have been potted up and pots of expiring tulips have been put out of site behind the raised bed. OH has swept, hosed and scrubbed the terrace and I've sloshed about in the pond removing blanket weed - a frog looked a bit bemused but stayed where he was.
Now my feet are up and I'm having some lovely local Binham Blue cheese with the last of the crusty boule I bought from Southwold the other day.
After lunch I've some aquilegias and delphiniums to find space for in the front border - hopefully the rain that's forecast for tomorrow will water them in well.
After that I'll put a lemon and tarragon chicken in to roast. We'll have that with new potatoes (Majorcan) and some braised lettuce and peas. It all sounds very French - shame the sky's clouding over - it doesn't look as if supper on the terrace is on the cards.
