Posting, Reading, And Gardening

This morning I posted

Later I carried out dead heading and weeding then read more of Doris Lessing, after which, while Jackie continued her general garden maintenance I wandered around the garden (pictures of which are titled in the gallery)

before watching the highlights of the final day of the New Zealand/England cricket Test match.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s succulent beef pie, Duchesse potatoes, crunchy carrots, cauliflower and broccoli, and meaty gravy with which she finished the Entire-Deux-Mers white wine, Flo drank a mixed fruit cordial, and I drank Ponce de Leon red wine 2020.


  1. The cricket highlights didn’t take long. In men’s cricket I still don’t understand why batsmen have become batters. Baseball has batters. Women cricketers can have batters if they want but men should have batsmen. Where has third man gone? It is now called the third area. Before long we will have batspeople. Batman will have to become Batperson.

    There was the promise of rain yesterday but none arrive so I continue to struggle against drought.

  2. Brilliant and gorgeous flowers!
    Always good to see Florence, an owl, a duck, and some mice. A wonderland garden with the cutest creatures! πŸ™‚
