Our lives at the moment....

Well went for a long walk this morning. We dug out the small rucksack we'd not used for ages and Jane found an unused hand sanitiser in it so there was a laugh in that !

Spring hasn't noticed the new 'C' word and that's for sure. The river also didn't seem to have noticed anything ! Popped into a pub by the river for a couple of pints and a sandwich (clear off, this is my fantasy !). Saw a Kingfisher (not fantasy but only the briefest of glimpses). People were in good spirits but those walking generally are. Out tomorrow morning then ;-)

I work on the bins collecting garden waste which hardly seems essential if you ask me. Can't understand why they are not pulling everything other than domestic. Seems daft to be risking my health for the sake of a few grass clippings.

Seeing the garden pictures- and sharing them with my wife - made me realise that we have developed a kind of quid pro quo relationship between our respective hobbies. A nice little addition to the hi-fi will be countered with a suitable statement in the garden, for gardening is her thing.

A particularly indulgent patch on my part over the past few months has been stored up for the big Spring garden project. The mini digger is arriving Tuesday and what is left of the lawn will be sacrificed for more planting space. Beth Chatto for her seems to be held in as high regard as I might consider a Japanese master valve amp designer.

And credit where it’s due , she has developed quite a talent for it...

My wife thanks you for the positive reaction to the garden picks. 

I did warn you that the digger would be arriving today for a ‘minor’ re-modelling of the lawn area. This is how it looks this evening!

Bugger!

for a minute, I thought it was "Guess the album cover" and I was convinced I'd got it!
