Just noticed that it’s a little over a week since I last recorded things from a life well spent on this site … remiss of me, something must have happened.

Indeed it has, the summer flowers are thriving and blooming with gorgeous dahlias and many pots of lilies all over as well as the usual perennials. We have had a couple of mega-rain storms recently though and they tend to bend and break the more tender flower stalks so we have also had excellent cut flowers in the house.  Always a good thing,

The other thing worth recording is that I am now entering the last month before retirement (to be leavened with a little “consultancy”, I have reason to think). The countdown begins.
