Recent heavy rains have opened another leak in the roof of our kitchen extension.
Jackie made these photographs of the kitchen floor, then
of what we think is the faulty lead flashing.
While she was at the upstairs windows
she then produced aerial shots of the soggy garden, after which
during a lull in the rain I toured the paths in search of raindrops on fuchsia Delta’s Sarah, begonias, pelargoniums, rose campion, various roses, chrysanthemums, Edinburgh dahlia, Rosa Glauca hips, and fallen beech leaves.
For dinner this evening we finished Jackie’s choice chicken and leek pie with crisp roast potatoes; al dente carrots and cauliflower; tender cabbage, and most flavoursome gravy, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Montpeyroux.
