Today’s atmosphere was somewhat dull and heavy, possibly in anticipation of the forecast return of heavy winds.
I took a turn around the garden while I could.
This view leads us south from the patio;
from the left hand corner of the Kitchen Bed our eye travels to the West Bed,
also seen in this shot of the Brick Path,
on the east side of which lie the Heligan Path and the Weeping Birch and Cryptomeria Beds.
Stepping stones take us past the Cryptomeria northwards to the house;
seen also from the Weeping Birch Bed.
Aaron has been planting roses on both sides of the back drive which should be even more colourful in the summer.
Here is the view southwards from the lawn;
and two around the greenhouse.
The front garden is what I see from either my desk or my reading chair.
This afternoon’s Six Nations rugby match between Ireland and Italy has been postponed. I trust Yvonne will forgive me for publishing this
list from Jackie’s morning shopping trip, and asking what links it with the previous sentence.
Later this afternoon I watched the rugby international between England and Wales, after which we dined on Jackie’s succulent beef pie; crisp roast potatoes; crunchy carrots, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, with which the Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden and I drank Concha y Toro Casillero del Diablo reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018.
