This morning, in order to show a positive aspect of the hot weather, Jackie photographed Wash Day at Downton.
She then cut my hair.
After lunch I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/08/07/a-knights-tale-147-ten-hours-at-the-wheel/
Later, I carried out a dead-heading session and
photographed a few flowers which bear their titles in the gallery. Bees were quite busy, although the first one was clearly sheltering beneath the zinnia petals. A number of seeds, such as those alongside the deep red backlit petunia, were blown in the air.
While I was uploading these pictures Flo and Dillon set out on a watering and planting session.
This evening we dined on chicken breasts marinaded in Nando’s lemon and lime sauce; Jackie’s savoury rice cooked in my chicken sauce; and tender green beans, with which she drank Hoegaarden, Flo and Dillon drank water, and I drank Signargues Côtes-du-Rhône Villages 2020.
