Yesterday’s winds had in fact reached gale proportions.
This morning I joined Jackie in the garden and carried out a dead heading operation.
Roses New Dawn, Alan Titchmarsh, Créme de la Créme, For Your Eyes Only, and Winchester Cathedral were among those that received my attention.
Taking a break for lunch and cutting my hair, Jackie continued until early evening. Among her achievements were

This latter project could be seen from the decking on which we took our pre-dinner drinks in gathering gloom, as could
