Cut grass, planted hosta delivery and thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine.  The forecast rain and strong winds didn't happen today here anyway.  My face is hot from the sun

Lovely, beautiful, sunny day.  Here in the Bay there is just a moderate breeze but sun is strong

Was windy but didn't hear too much.  Calm, warm, sunny and all the birds singing everywhere here.  And a Verdun could be heard whistling a delightful tune! 

a good turn needs to be considered......

No, dont like adders at all Pam.  You're right though, they are out now . Can't come into my garden as its walled but I need to be careful now on the towans with my dog.

Rushed back hoping for my plant delivery....maybe deliveries 

the weather is amazing.  Wind has dropped and sun is deliciously warm.  Haven't got a ride on mower like Hostafan....though he says I can borrow it ......but the grass should be dry enough to cut in a couple of hours.

For me, in spring hadspen cream has wonderful small leaves and myriads of forget me not blue flowers.  I much prefer the smaller leaves....they are better variegated.  I usually cut them back in mid summer and the resulting growth is again those smaller variegated leaves

dont find mine invasive at all but it is easily divided.
