Before lunch on another very hot day I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/06/04/a-knights-tale-136-an-eventful-move/
Jackie and Flo had spent much of yesterday afternoon and, in, Flo’s case, evening, working on weeding and clearing paths. This afternoon I carried much of the remaining refuse to the compost bins; photographed
a few more roses whose names are given in the gallery; and the paths which have been opened up.
Jackie had cleared much of Margery’s and the Cryptomeria Bed on either side of the Phantom Path, including, this morning, trimming the variegated laurel at the corner of the Gazebo Path.
The Heligan Path
and the footpath through the Weeping Birch Bed had been quite overgrown until Flo set to work on them.
The view from the chair beside the birch had been impossible to enjoy because the seat could not be reached.
Ian joined us this afternoon. He and I watched the highlights of the third day of the first Test match between England and New Zealand, then we all enjoyed our dinner of tender roast lamb; crisp roast potatoes; crunchy carrots; firm cauliflower and broccoli and soft green beans with which Jackie and our son-in-law drank Hoegaarden; Becky finished the Sauvignon Blanc and I drank The Black Stump Durif Shiraz 2021
