Following on from yesterday's post I have decided to ask my handyman to paint my handrail with dark green cuprinol. I think it will blend in with the garden so much better. My son came round last evening and watered some of the new plants for me and climbing up the steps to the top of the garden was so much easier with the rail,and I felt much safer.
The temperature has been falling steadily all day today and now, at tea time, it is quite cool and there has just been a sharp shower. It did strike me that even a short, sharp shower does more good than all my watering with the can. Something to do with the atmosphere and the way the plants soak up the moisture I think.
More honey bees to rescue today . I wonder if there are hives nearby. The area around my bungalow has literally thousands of dandelions - perhaps they are attracting the bees. The dandelions are just beginning to throw out their seeds so there will be just as many if not more next year. They are such a lovely colour, what a pity they are judged as weeds.
It is nice to see the swallows back. No swifts yet but after this warm week end they should soon be around. But to see the swallows gliding around in the thermals is a start - Summer is just around the corner.
Have a good evening.
