is what I enjoyed doing both yesterday morning and this morning. The weather was ideal to collect seed, dead-head, dig, harvest, hoe, prune, tidy and weed. As I worked I was tentatively thinking about what to grow and where next year, both flowers and vegetables. I want to grow less but better if that makes sense.
I stood and watched a wood pigeon drink from the water tank just across the roadway. It perched on the side, looked round at me before dipping it’s head then repeated the action several times before flying off.
I always check the level when I arrive, and leave, to make sure it’s full to the brim. I do that so birds can drink from it and anything that falls in can hopefully get out although there is wire mesh that we put across the top. I did rescue a frog that was in it a couple of years ago.
It looks like being drizzly and dull tomorrow then dry, sunny and warmer Tuesday onwards. Hopefully that will help my sweetcorn and tomatoes to ripen.
I did another guest blog post, Sunflowers, for Living Paintings last week which you might enjoy reading.
Have a good week!
