My Week So Far.

Good Morning, just a short catchup entry as I promised to try to write more often so here goes. Over the weekend we planted out (well I say we it was Stuart doing the planting because of my knee) the rest of our annuals as we hope there will not be any more frost. I still have one more tray to put out but they have been a bit slow and need a bit more time yet. On Monday we had another of our days out and I will write about that when I get time to download the photographs we took.
Yesterday was our one and only grand-daughter's 8th the birthday so we visited last evening for coffee and birthday cake. She had received a lot of Lego and we made a hay barn and a tractor and had a great time it ages since I played with Lego. She had a complete farmyard and a horsebox etc. She just loves her Lego think she takes after her Dad I still have his big tin of pieces here not as fancy as they are now but still in good working order after all those years.
Today is shopping delivery day and we also collect Ellen from school for tea and then Richard collects her later on so Stuart does the homework with her and I just know he loves doing that. Think that's about it for now so there you have my week so far all exciting stuff. ha ha. Love Joan

We had a few late frosts this May and it did put planting a couple of weeks behind for many here, but I do think it has finally decided to get warmer and stay that way. Summer is almost here so it's time. Hope that knee is feeling better for you. Take good care!

I'm not convinced we're done with the frost yet! Yes, I know it's June so we ought to be but it has been so cold lately I fear the worst!

Fortunately it's Keith who does our garden and he's planted everything he had, including geraniums which go nasty if they get frost.

Lkg fwd to hearing about your latest trip.

love, Angie, xx

We are finally done with the frost and my plants are going crazy. Glad your getting yours in. Hope your knee is getting better. It takes awhile with them.

Jeanie said...

I planted my fuchias too soon and one of them is definitley not thriving. Now that it is June we should hope for a bit more clement weather for planting out.
Shame about your knee Joan. I hope it soon wears off and gets better soon. Your photos in the previous entry are stunning! I love to see nature in all her glory.
Meanwhile..stay well and pain free.
