This morning I printed a set of photographs of his work last Sunday for Aaron.
Jackie liked this one so much that I produced one for her. It shows Aaron’s careful sensitivity in showing his nephew his craft.
Afterwards I photographed those items I missed yesterday of which Jackie is justifiably proud.
This is an hydrangea picked up for a song in Lidl when the heatwave raged. She has kept it well watered in a pot.
These heucheras have all been taken from cuttings and await their permanent positions next year.
More gladioli and dahlias thrive in the New Bed.
The Head Gardener has raised six pots of chillies from seed. Demon Reds are now appearing.
This afternoon Jackie and I drove to Upper Dicker to attend Poppy and Becky’s joint birthday party. Also present were, of course, Mat, Tess, Ian, and Becky’s friends Miche and Louis. We enjoyed fresh bread, sausage, paté, dips, cheese, chicken, sausage rolls, and, naturally, a superb cake crafted by Tess. Beers, wines, and soft drinks were available.
Here, Becky, sporting sunnies and two pom-poms given to her by Poppy, demonstrates her ecstatic delight at the perpetual calendar Jackie and I gave her.
We needed no further sustenance on our return home.
