Following on from my post of two days ago I scanned a few more slides from The Dumb Flea holiday.
Here Becky sits in the garden with her two regular charges, David and Samuel. Yes, that is a pet rabbit hopping about.
Another great attraction was the pool.
Becky got Sam accustomed to the idea of water-wings;
then, somewhat pleased with himself, and concentrating hard, he was off on his own,
and Cherie to enjoy their own swim.
This afternoon Jackie was almost back to normal planting in the garden.
She assembled and embedded a Gardman Arch across the Phantom Path and positioned a clematis Venosa Violacea on the Margery’s Bed side;
and further along placed a large lobelia in the space left for it beside the Star of India.
My contribution was a little weeding, dead-heading, and watering.
Roses, such as Mamma Mia, enjoyed a few minutes of sunshine in a rather overcast day.
For our evening meal we visited the Hare & Hounds public house just outside Sway. We were not disappointed. I enjoyed a plentiful whitebait starter followed by chicken and leek pie, chips, and peas; Jackie’s mushroom pot followed by generous tagliatelle was equally good. Neither of us could even think about a dessert. Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I imbibed doom bar.
The setting sun set the building aglow as we left for our short journey home.
