IMAGES MAY BE ENLARGED BY CLICKING ON THEM, TWICE IF NECESSARY
This morning we all joined the other customers in the cafe. Poppy did actually eat most of what was on her plate.
An hour or so later, Jackie and I set off back home, reaching there early in the afternoon.
Aaron had moved a clump of ornamental grass further back in the Palm Bed,
and removed rust from most of the furniture in the rose garden and painted it with Hammerite. Here we have a reclaimed armchair seated under the arch with a church candlestick behind it.
Pansies are flourishing;
the Snake’s Head fritillaries proliferate;
our numerous heucheras now have flowers;
and grape hyacinths are new arrivals.
This evening we dined on a Chinese takeaway from Happy Days in Pennington, and, between us, finished the Broadwood’s Folly English white wine.
