Morning forkers.

Lovely start today, having morning perambulate around the garden, heard a rustling in the reeds of the very overgrown pond and then  I saw a heron.

Must cut the lawns today, but then again must watch the cricket, which will win?

Luckily fidget didn't have much to do, except sticking a lot of stitches in one of the guys leg, after he stumbled into a crevasse. It was fun doing that on the glacier whilst the other guys stood around with guns in case a Polar bear was attracted.

Earlier this year someone was savaged after walking to far from his camp, by himself and with no weapon. He had an arm torn off, which might have been more tricky to manage.

 A few more pictures. The birds in case they are too small to see are puffins.

Afternoon all.

Never really got started in the garden today. One of the joys of retirement, is that there is always tomorrow.

Watched cricket instead, nice to be stuffing the Aussies again.

Not sure I am going to get anything done today. I keep going out, looking around, coming back in and looking on here, then checking on the cricket. Oh. well maybe tomorrow.

Dead heading of so many plants is a good idea, but I so rarely seem to find the time, even though I can spend hours sitting and staring into space. Just lazy I suppose. It is on my list today, but not started yet,

Morning all. Blue sky here as well.

Just tidying up before cleaner arrives! Still no idea why I do that.

A bit of dead heading today, then cut the lawns.

Have a lovely holiday Lesley, and have a good day everyone else.

Identity help please

Pritchards variety is blue, which is the one in the picture. Loddon Anna is pink.
