Throughout the garden we have prolific clusters of small orange and yellow poppies that shed their petals each day. Regular dead-heading encourages further growth. It has been one of my tasks to carry out this task. Today I did so for the first time since before my surgery.
I took my time over it, and paused for pit-stops along the way when, seated on chairs and benches that would have been too low for me six weeks ago, I photographed something else, such as the New Bed, the Rose Garden, the Oval Bed, day lilies, hostas, urns, and other planters.
Jackie continued what she regards as her garden housework.
This afternoon we drove to Everton Post Office and sent a parcel to New Zealand.
During the passages when my eyes were open, I then watched the World Cup football match between Sweden and Switzerland.
This evening we dined on Mr Pink’s Fish and Chips, and pickled onions. Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I finished the Fleurie.
Soon we will settle down to watch the England v. Colombia football match.
