Throughout the garden we have plants, such as these bidens that enliven the front entrance, that have self-seeded from tubs and hanging baskets.
It was a dewy morning in the forest when we went for a drive.
On the outskirts of Wootton, through a break in the trees, we glimpsed a string of ponies making their way along a bank which turned out to be one side of a dug out car park. Naturally, in the interests of photography, Jackie drove us into it, performing the usual slalom around waterlogged pit-holes.
I ascended the steps and mingled with the ponies, one of whom had a bit of catching up to do.
The gorse bushes wore cobweb and dewdrop strings of pearls;
and moisture lay across the moors. Gulls were forced to share the terrain with crows, dogs and their owners,
whilst riders galloped horses in the distance.
Further on, there was evidence that someone had lost a pretty scarf wrapped around a tree.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s delicious beef stew and mashed potato, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank Gilbert & Gaillard Chateauneuf du Pape 2014. We deserved it because the iMac is still playing up, and I could only post these pictures by e-mailing them in medium size to myself and putting them into WordPress from the Windows laptop. I couldn’t load them directly onto the laptop because I had deleted them from the camera on uploading them to the Mac. Well, it had worked well yesterday.
