Jackie spent much of the morning working in the greenhouse, alongside which this is the
view to the yellowing weeping birch.
Pansies are blooming in the iron urn and in hanging baskets;
others of which contain such as petunias and calendulas.
It is still the season for dahlias of varying hues.
A variety of fuchsias continue to thrive, as do
clematises, calendulas, nicotiana sylvestris, Chilean Lantern tree, heucheras, Compassion rose, nasturtiums, geranium Rozanne, sweet peas, and hot lips.
These final views are of the Gothic arch and the Shady Path with its owls.
Drops from the early morning rain may be seen on a number of the individual images which may need bigifying (a word which the internet owes to the late Pauline King).
Late this afternoon we shopped for toiletries in Old Milton before driving into the forest where
I rambled among the ponies foraging in the woodland alongside Bisterne Close.
Clouds loured over the Holmlsey skyline as we returned along the eponymous Passage.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s golden smoked haddock; piquant cauliflower cheese; creamy mashed potatoes; green peas; and bright orange carrots, with which we both drank Valle de Leyda gran reserva Suvignon Blanc 2019.
