Good morning. I've been lying in bed pretending to doze but actually reading my January Garden and being "loved" by Cosmos who can't decide between flying pirouettes to entertain me or snuggling. Lovely line from Helen Dillon who has moved to a new, smaller garden after a lifetime in her famous one and has left behind all the statues because a friend had said "Statues are just garden gnomes for the upper classes'. Always hated those fake Grecian goddesses and so on. Must take a pic of the garden round the corner for you.
It's fine and dry today so I've asked OH to come out to play - digging big holes for me to plant 3 trees and maybe the gunnera which I shall have to cut out of its pot. Might even get some weeding done and bung in a few late bulbs I still have lying around.
We're off out to a concert this evening - piano and violin - then dinner with a chap from the golf club whose wife can't join us as she'll be in Nantes babysitting.
Our Leclerc's have a good range of veg Busy tho poor on Chinese greens, kale and cavolo nero. They have lots of locally grown stuff and the usual Spanish offerings but also exotics in the two nearer the coast. How big is this curtain to be? We had draught excluding curtains for doors in Belgium but they're just folded on a shelf here, waiting for me to decide where and if we can use them here.
Hope you get your peaceful, early night tomorrow Pat. Liri - you'll be glad of a rest when you get home!
Greetings to all those yet to pop in.
