Hotter then hotter again?…

I don’t really cope with school holidays! There I’ve said it. I hated them as a kid, when it felt like no one still lived in our seaside town, and I hate it now for my kids when I have to organise things for them to do which doesn’t involve a computer or a tv. We entered the school holidays this year with little difference to the daily routine because we hadn’t sent our kids anywhere because they were not requested to return. Home school drags on in some places but not ours… Today we actually went to the park with another family and the dogs. It was good to break out from the confines of our home.

Those stains are caused by pollen. Just as well this is outside …
Golden rod needing purged… I really don’t like it. However that bee does…

It’s good to spend time like this, and we weren’t the only group under the huge trees on the common. Afterwards some clothes were passed over and I visited my friend’s really productive veg patch. It made me very envious when I saw her productive beans and marrows! Much bigger than ours! Both her veg patch and the produce… And I have been offered some pea gravel which can go on the slab area instead of my pretty bags of gravel which I feel occupying another area of the grass (ie using some of the weed barrier we have lots of, unearthed by dismantling the tiny garden shed) and making another part of the garden useful. I really don’t think our football pitch sized lawn will remain turfed for long. A pond is in the thought process still…

Pea gravel to be collected…

Perhaps this is the legacy of 2020 post lockdown summer? A proper sized shed and a clearance of areas of the garden I never intended to keep when we made this house purchase? Yes please! It’s keeping me fit and enthusiastic for what our home life is going to be like for the foreseeable. I’ve picked up my sewing machine from the chap who did a service on it. Maybe some material projects will be finished…

I really thought I had killed this rose…
