Car park was crowded with people going to vote at the Library building. We have a postal vote and it was sent in 3 weeks ago.I Took the books back and did the few bits of shopping whilst DB parked the car. Went and chose our books.
Quick trip to Aldi and we were soon on the way home. DB thinks it had rained whilst we were out as the grass is very wet, he was hoping to cut it this afternoon. It will have to wait now.
Lots of posters up in the village about various things going on next month. 2nd of July is the annual Hose Fest, lots of things going on and I expect the beer tent will do good business, the local school is holding a fete on the same day on the village green and we have a Dolly Parton tribute group coming for a return visit. They were very popular last year. I guess we will wander along to the fete, not so sure about the fest, its not really our scene.
I had to buy a new can opener this morning, my old one fell to bits, I also get the batteries for the kitchen timer.
Washing hung out, loaf baked and I have also cooked a joint of gammon, will slice it and the bread tomorrow.
This is the red poppy which has come out in the garden this morning, its a double, no idea where it came from.
This is the first time I have managed to grow verbascum, the plant at its base is a heuchera sanguuinea called coral bells and behind a ruby red weigela
A single rose on one of the old plants in the front, they will be dug in the autumn.
I did manage not to buy any more plants this morning, Aldi had quite a lot of bedding plants, I have enough thank you, so walked by.
DB is having his siesta I am back off into the sewing room for an hour or so.
Baked gammon, eggs and tomato for supper, strawberries, jelly and cream for dessert, yum yum. The strawberries have done quite well this year, they are second year plants, they flowered in pots last year, the flowers were taken off so we got stronger plants this year and more fruit.
