Although the sun shone most of the day, clouds scudded across the cerulean sky, being swept along by swirling winds of 40/50 m.p.h.
My main task was to cart the three bags of horse manure gathered yesterday along to the compost bins and work it in. The wind made this a rather hazardous trip by rolling small empty plastic plant containers across the paths in an effort to trip me up. I had been rash enough to carry a very full bag into the car, not taking into account that lifting it to the top of the compost pile required quite a bit of oomph and resulted in a certain amount of soggy spillage.
Jackie toured the garden with her camera this morning, and this afternoon I produced this gallery of her efforts. One of the facilities I missed when I abandoned the Gutenberg editor and reverted to the Classic was the tiled gallery, operating a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. What I was left with was a gallery which cropped images to make them fit.
Another improvement we now have is that the Header Picture is the one of my choice and is not randomly cropped.
The Head Gardener has photographed roses, irises, rhododendrons, foxgloves and other plants with a variety of locations. The titles are each shown on the individual pictures. The gallery can be accessed with a click on any image.
This evening we dined on more of Jackie’s most tasty liver and bacon casserole served with creamy mashed potato and swede; crunchy carrots; and tender cabbage with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank water.
