Good morning. I've been out dong taxi duty taking t'other pair to play golf. Possum is having driving lessons then a few short holes on the beginners' course and then we're all meeting up for lunch. While the OH "cat" is away, I have the sprinkler on teh shade bed. The buddleia at the sunnier end is wilting!! They grow out of brick walls for heaven's sake. How dry can it be?
I cut our grass in the second week of June. No more cuts till I did it again last week just to stop weed flowers seeding but decided to leave the clumps of volunteer eryngium maritinum (sand dunes?) and some mallow and achillea for the insects. Covered in them.
Now to sand down the teak table, oil it and then varnish it when dry. Used a new product on it in May and it's gone black in the sun and spots of rain we've had. Under a canopy now so should be OK. 35C here already but clouding over with odd gusts of wind. Feels like it should get stormy but I bet we just get furniture moving at the most.
Love the cuddly cat Liri. I would find photography much more satisfying than art. No hand eye coordination except when painting walls and skirtings and furniture or catching balls.
I hope everyone has a good day and that all injuries or sickies make good progress, whether human or other.
