The moon still shone brightly as Jackie went out to photograph
the pastel pink dawn
as it tinted the roof tiles over the gabled bedroom that harboured John Corden on his recent visit.
Although we had suffered a little more damage such as fallen pots, supports, and owls on the decking,
the camellias continue to proliferate.
These views along and beyond the Head Gardener’s Walk show snowdrops, bergenias, camellias, and primulas,
another row of which, happily hindered by Nugget,
Jackie planted this morning. The labels lying on the soil are marking lily and gladiolus bulbs also inserted therein.
“Where’s Nugget?” (66).
The Assistant Photographer produced all these photographs, including this lovely composition of
cyclamens, vinca, and cherub sculpture.
This evening for dinner, Jackie produced baked gammon; piquant cauliflower and broccoli cheese; creamy mashed potatoes; and sautéed leeks mixed with chopped cabbage. I finished the Squinzano and Jackie abstained.
