Started paining. Dug up the oak forest that tries to grow every year. The old oak tree does insist its offspring germinate in my white border. Transplanted a cyclamen growing in lawn and wondered why cat (mine) was sitting on bird bath/fountain with her tail in the water!! 

Now sun is out


Not seen many films lately.
