I slept in, so DB brought me my breakfast, its a fine morning, still a breeze and it keeps clouding over.
I should be doing the Friday clean, but just cannot be bothered, it can stay mucky.
We had a serious altercation yesterday in the car on the way back from looking at the sheds. We have had to have a serious talk about DB driving and me navigating.......I want him to think seriously about giving up his license, he is too easily confused especially when we get to roundabouts. He is out in the garden just now. I need to talk to the Dr, I think he is showing signs of dementia which his mother had.
I took some photos in the garden this morning.....
Tub I planted last week
The ivy has been in the kitchen for 2 years, decided it was time to plant it out.
Fuchsias and geraniums at the side of the coal shed. There is also a foxglove I have potted on to get a bit bigger before it goes into the garden.
I think this is Clematis Niobe
Clematis Comtesse de Bouchard.
Red poppies, the blowsy pink ones have apparently died off, they did not come through this year.
The lavender at the side of the front path has come out two different colours although the cuttings all came from the same plants, weird........we have a fab border one side, the other side is pathetic..........
Left hand side of the path, looks great, a decent crop of lavender
Right hand side, this is the side where we have had trouble growing the lavender, we have put down black plastic and are planting through the plastic into compost, but it is never going to be as good at the other side. Still raising cuttings which hopefully will take and not die off.
Fox gloves and antirrhinums, neither of these have been planted by us, they are self setters.
Fish, chips and peas tonight for supper, DB has picked two pots of strawberries, so dessert sorted.
I need to go through the two bags of fabric that I have been given, I might be able to do something with some of it, will have to see. There is some very heavy tapestry fabric, not really enough to do a lot with but will see. I have the table runner to quilt and bind, so will get on with that this afternoon whilst DB has his siesta.
P came home yesterday. I will go over later, he has been taken for a hospital appointment this morning. I think they have knocked back the idea of someone sleeping in, there did not appear to be anyone there last night. I am concerned that B is going to wear herself out very quickly trying to look after him herself and not getting a decent nights sleep.
