Hot here all day.

Lots of gardening done, FYM spread, weeds removed. The garden has come to life. Yellow butterfly (brimstone?), peacock, small tortoiseshell, commas. Lily beetle squashed. The lilies aren't even up yet!!!

Two robins fighting over the patch I had just dug. A wren in the greenhouse.

A new wheelbarrow OH fetched from Wickes. 

Now for a nice glass of wine, and put my feet up. Have a good evening folks.
