You can say that again. And again. I have never had so many spikes on the Rogersii.
New trellis up for the burgeoning Clematis.
And the other Clematis, alongside which is the second Rogersii, also throwing up more spikes.
I planted 150 Allium bulbs. No way have I got 150 Alliums come up! Not even a quarter of them, ah well, they have made up for my disappointment. I do have a sample of each one, but not all out yet.
A lovely sheltered sun trap. I only discovered this while staggering, to the left of the lilac tree, to the compost bin heaving a trug full of weeds.
I thought, "Hey up, this is a lovely, sheltered sun trap." So dragged a few chairs across.
But didnt dare sit on them as I would never have got up again.
I do think that it must be down to the funny weather we have had that everything is flowering like mad.
"This could be the last time we blossom!"
Just all of a sudden there's flowers everywhere you look.
Sadly the DP went a bit mad with the weather being warm, sunny, windless and now been diagnosed with sciatica and loaded up with pills. Having read the blurb that comes with pills these days, too much information...... I shall be surprised if he survives.
Howsomever, he was told today, best cure is to walk. So no excuse tomorrow when I kick him out of bed.
It was his excuse to justify the boat trip he went on at the weekend. Our insurance man just got himself a new Rib, No his name is not Adam, tis a boat. That goes very, very fast. And no doubt where our insurance money went.
By the time you have all the safety gear, inflating body suits, life saver efforts you couldnt walk very far anyway.
So off they bounced. These Ribs dont sail smoothly across the briny, they bounce. Very fast. Up the coast to Pennan. Made famous in the filum, "Local Hero".
Once the boat stopped bouncing the cameras were released from their waterproof safe.
The real reason for the jaunt. Taking photographs. Guillemot.
My favourite, above, Gannet.
Do you think I should be seeking therapy? I cannot stop drawing and painting Gannets. OCG.
