On the whole, the weather oop North has been sunny and delightful. It rained for about 16 seconds yesterday and looks threatening today but I've thrown caution to the wind and pegged out anyway. My frind gifted me some cornflower plantlets as an unnecessary thank you for the tardis so they went in their final resting places yesterday.
As a bit of enrichment yesterday, I let Bluebell go bobbing for apples, carrots and frozen peas. Kept her quiet for ten minutes.
I had a wander round the garden front and back taking shots of the beautiful flowers. The flag irises are almost open.
The last two pictures make me laugh. The level of Candy Crush I am currently stuck on has the touch of Victor Meldrew about it!
I am not sure if our street is doing anything for VE day, I do know of folks having front garden parties. A tweet on twitter made me think this morning -
His mum survived the blitz and she said the reality was quite different from the jolly nostalgia Anything that lifts the spirits in these hard days is a bonus and I have my Union Jack ready to display in my window. I will be very mindful today and remember those that died for us.
Lots of Love from
