Today has been Open Gardens in our village, so the whole of the place has been really spruced up for the event and everywhere looks lovely. As I live a good mile out of the village I never take part but as I always go out with friends for Sunday lunch I drove through the village at mid-day and it was heaving with people - a good sign for village funds.
My son and his wife always open their garden and I had a tour round that last night. It is on several levels, which is always an asset I think. There is also a little pond with a tiny trickling waterfall - a lovely feature.
There is a scarecrow competition too and there were various ones scattered about the place - some of them very good indeed.
Sundays are perhaps the worst days of the whole week when one lives alone - but the four of us friends have now been out to lunch for about the last eight Sundays and it takes up a large part of the day with eating, laughter and chatting with other regulars. Can't be a bad thing.
Back to doing a few boxes packed tomorrow. I am nearing the end of things which can really be packed in advance. Once I have a moving date then I can really advance quickly (I hope).
