Funny Old World!

Rules are changing by the day and councils are refusing to open schools… In the North of England the councils have taken a stand. We don’t have firm science yet so keeping kids at home may be more likely than not. The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s are homeschooling and when they send George and Charlotte back is a good indicator that it is safe. However they have nannies etc to keep lessons going… My kids are in the inbetween groups: y4 and y8. So probably not going back till September… I won’t have peace or the house to myself till then.

Better keep working on the garden then… it’s my sanctuary but it is still needing hard landscaping and the weeds are growing apace! The only way to get rid is hard work. I am not a fan of heavy-duty weed killer or wanting to resort to a flame thrower.

I am so proud that my youngest likes the wave of purple on the front – a purple rainbow was actually her words. We were off to pick up breakfast supplies from her school: bagels and shreddies but left the (catering tins of) beans for others.

Alliums and peonies create a rainbow 🌈
Not quite fully out but these christophii are my favourite alliums.
