Hi there! Wasn't this weekend just gone a rather hot one! Too hot to be doing any housework - the washing and ironing and virtually all other household tasks were put on hold! A temporary suspension from all domestic chores! The OH's mum came round on Saturday morning and we trundled off to the local Garden Centre where we purchased some plants for the tubs in the back garden before retiring to the local pub for lunch! We wiled away the time watching the world go by whilst Miss. K. enjoyed herself in the play area.
When the sun went down we assembled the newly purchased plants and arranged which flowers should go into which pot - decisions, decisions! Miss. K. had chosen five plants for her own pot and assisted with the planting process. Yesterday and this morning she has got up extra early to water the plants!
Before we planted one pot we had to get rid of the pansies that had grown there from November and which still had about 20 great pansies but the leaves were pretty pathetic and so out the pansies came! I took a photo just to remind me of their beauty!
We had thought of buying some geraniums but the selection was poor so we purchased some pelargoniums instead!
We also purchased this daisy like flower and the usual petunias and some trailing plants!
We were given this climbing hydrangea by the OH's dad when we moved here 15 years ago. For the first five or six years it was a sad looking twig but now it has spread and spread and looks lovely hiding the wooden fence!
Tonight, we took the dogs for a walk and went to Selborne. I would love to take a peak inside this cottage!
Another view further down the lane!
We enter the fields! Miss. K. has always hated butter and hoped that the buttercup didn't disagree!
The public footpath!
A friendly ladybird!
Someone climbed a tree whilst wearing their flip-flops and one fell off and had to be retrieved from the water which was very cold, apparently!
More wild flowers!
The Church at Selborne!
I hope that you all had a great weekend and that you enjoy the week ahead!
Until next time,
