This afternoon I kept my eyes open for most of the football World Cup match between Brazil and Mexico. In order to wake me up at half time I wandered around the garden,
where Jackie was spraying the flower beds by hose.
The cane chair planting
and other containers were still benefitting from recent irrigation.
A variety of nasturtiums are in pots in the front of the garage door,
and solanum and honeysuckle have joined clematis Mrs N. Thompson on the trellis.
We have many other clematises.
Several different day lilies occupy the Dragon Bed, which leads towards petunias in a hanging basket over the Head Gardener’s Walk.
Rose Mamma Mia blends well with some of the lilies.
Before they returned home Becky and Ian sat in the garden seeking solutions to a crossword.
Later, Jackie and I dined on a little of Becky’s chicken curry and rice; rack of pork spare ribs in barbecue sauce; and fresh salad.
