The funeral is booked for Friday 13th. I know the date would have some people running for the hills but in all honesty to us it's just a date. It will be a horrible day in any event .so I can't see why the date should be any more significant in the bad-day stakes than it it is - if that makes sense. It does in my head!
So, we're all in that that twilight limbo-land right now where nothing makes much sense, much needs doing, inevitable red tape, documentation and necessary appointments dominate our days. As some wise friends have said to me, "This too shall pass". And I know it will.
Welcome to my new follower, Cath. **waves and blows kisses**
The allotment has been very much neglected of late, due to a combination of torrential rain and hospital visiting. As it's a beloved place for us all, we had a bit of a working party on Sunday whilst there was a brief few hours respite from the rain.
Oh Lottie - we only left you to your own devices for a very short while and you've gorn all blowsy and rampant. You cheeky madam!
Poppies are doing well though!! So many different ones in such a small area! I do love them though - such bright cheerful little flowers.
Botanists would have a field day in this empty bed which has been colonised by self-seeded wild-things!
|Foxgloves - nearly "as high as an elephant's eye!" I had to stretch up with my camera to take this shot!|
|I've just noticed the tasteful arrangement of pine cones around the base of this little fella - they were in fact as nature intended despite looking as though we had placed them for effect!|
|These other two beauties were just around the corner - not quite as big, but still sizeable - click to enlarge any of the photographs - you'll see a £1 coin placed on the lower one for scale purposes!|
See you soon xxxxx
