Sporting her Russell crow protection helmet Jackie spent much of the more overcast, but still hot and humid, morning watering her container pots and hanging baskets. The last picture features one of her reservoirs made from upturned bottomless plastic bottles. Russell did not put in an appearance.

This afternoon, among other tasks, Aaron of A.P. Maintenance pruned the wisteria, while

his companion Daryl watered the areas I had irrigated two days ago.

A little later I watched the first half of the World Cup football match between Spain and Russia; and slept through much of the second, waking in time for the penalty shoot-out.

Ian arrived to join us this morning, and the four of us dined this evening at The Royal Oak. I enjoyed my Sunday roast lamb with roast potatoes, excellent Yorkshire pudding, and a range of crisp vegetables, followed by Eton mess. I drank a glass of excellent Malbec. If any of the others would like to state what they had, I will leave that to them

  1. Welcome home, Jackie! And I love her new RC helmet! πŸ˜€
    Hmm…I wonder where he is?!

    Looks like the garden got lots of love and attention! πŸ™‚
    We are not getting enough rain yet (this summer) so we have to water all of the plants and trees often.

    HUGS to all of you!!! πŸ™‚

  2. Magpies can be a problem here when they’re nesting. Bike riders attach spikes to their helmets, and some folk have been known to wear a plastic ice cream container with eyes painted on it on their heads! I haven’t resorted to that one myself.

  3. We have talk of a hosepipe ban, take showers not baths and so on. Absolutely disgraceful after the winter of rain, rain, rain we had. Lots of beautiful flowers! have you ever counted them?

  4. The area that Daryl is watering is so beautiful!
    I hope Russell is OK–and I also hope he’s off finding his own food now. But I did laugh at your opening line. πŸ™‚

  5. The garden never ceases to astound me. You have put in so much work and it’s extraordinary from every angle. I am glad to see some others in there bearing some of the burden. Nice to see so many photos of you, Jackie.
