I got home from the plot one morning during the week to find an official looking envelope on the doormat. On opening it I was pleasantly surprised to find that I’d won £25 on the Premium Bonds. I’ve had them for years and it’s only the second win I’ve had, the other one also being £25.
Yesterday morning there was another envelope which was hand written and posted from Cornwall. I opened it to find this lovely card along with a nice message and some seeds from Debbie, who lives in Plymouth.
She’d sent me some blue flowering Aquilegia and dwarf Sweet William, which has white flowers with a red centre, she’d recently collected in her garden.
With the temperature in the high 20’s C/ over 80F it’s been too hot to plot and my visits have been just to water where needed, lift some more potatoes and have a look round before heading for home. One morning I was pleased to see and photograph this Painted Lady butterfly on the self-seeded sunflower Ring of Fire.
Take care, and have a good week!
