This was a day of wind, rain, colder temperatures, coats, and central heating. A bit like Dunedin’s winter.
During a brief period of lessening rain Jackie continued her work on securing sweet peas and other climbing plants; rehanging baskets; and setting other planters back on their perches.
Here are some of the finished projects. The begonias in the penultimate image lost a few broken stems from which Jackie is attempting to produce roots. She is doing the same with a proliferation of pelargoniums.
These ginger lilies happily survived.
Most flowers were bejewelled with raindrops.
This was not a day for little birds to come out and play.
We dined this evening on a second sitting of Hordle Chinese Take Away’ excellent fare with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I finished the Shiraz.
