Phew!

After a very pleasant day out yesterday, I was out for a meal in the evening with my son, daughter, grandson and my son and daughter's step-brother and his wife. This was to celebrate four birthdays that will have taken place all within the same two week period. June is like December in my family!!

Today I had time to myself so managed to spend the day gardening. I can't believe in the week I've been away just how much everything has grown!

Down by the water fountain, there was I down on my hands and knees weeding, when a tiny froglet emerged from the wet stones about two inches from my nose! I think I was more startled than the froglet - lovely to see it though.

Managed to get a great deal done today - haven't cut the grass yet (machete on order!) so that still needs to be done, amongst other things.

At the end of the day, I had a shower, a meal (and a small glass of the red stuff) and here I am talking to you - I hope this all makes sense LOL!

A simple day, but one which was so satisfying in the company of the birds and wildlife in the sunny garden and one which, following a good day yesterday, did wonders for my temper :)

That sounds like a perfect day to me, to have the time to be with family and a bit of gardening too.BW Goosey

I am always amazed when I come home after being away for a week at how much the garden has grown and sprouted during the week. Always a pleasure to see and then I see that the grass has grown as well which then means lawn mowing (not my favourite job).
