An overnight thunderstorm had freshened the garden and reduced the temperature to a degree that Jackie could continue weeding, hacking, and planting; and I was able to enjoy the game of wandering around seeking her piles of garden waste for me to gather up and transfer to the compost heap or the orange bags for the dump.
In between times, for the next instalment of ‘A Knight’s Tale, I amended some text and
included these two photographs from ‘Pink Petticoats’.
I then scanned another batch of colour negatives from 1990.
I converted to black and white this image of Lindum House made that May.
These show the colours.
Matthew created a testing improvised seesaw for the ever-game Louisa. The dog belonged to Jessica’s cousin Caroline.
James Bird, who here swings with Louisa, is the lad who found the coot.
Perhaps more cosy in the hammock, Wolf and Luci were another pair of swingers;
more precarious were the Rat Pack – popular little pets, of course.
In July, at the Staunton temple opening, featured in the coot post highlighted above, Jessica shares some amusement with an attractive elderly guest.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s excellent lamb korai, sag ponir, and boiled rice. I finished the cabernet sauvignon. Jackie had consumed her Peroni on the patio beforehand.
