Dilly phoned this morning to say that her car was due to be serviced and could they call in, for Al to fetch them after work – he finishes around lunchtime on a Saturday. Of course, it was a great pleasure. We hadn’t seen them for a few weeks, what with holidays and so on. And after a while, Dilly went with the boys round the village to inspect what was on offer in the village garage/car boot sale – which seemed to be well supported, both by participants and buyers – and Squiffany and I went shopping for lunch. Pizza was decided upon, with salad, raspberries and ice cream and, after lunch, they all went on to the front field to play golf with the set of clubs they’d just bought.
I took these photos before dead-heading, though I haven’t done it all, a bit too boring. I’ll have another go tomorrow. Gentle gardening isn’t for me, I like a project. Anyway, the lilies are gorgeously scented and there are others, taller ones, that aren’t in flower yet. The rose is a David Austen one called … oh, can’t remember, Jubilee Celebration or something similar. I was taking Ben for a walk when we surprised a young bunny, which ran all of ten yards before deciding it was safe and it stayed by the bed for several minutes while we waited patiently. Ben moved while I was taking the picture so it isn’t very well focussed.
And now Russell has gone for fish and chips.
