Perhaps our first completely dry day for many weeks - although the sky was often quite cloudy there was no rain about. My replacement gardener (my usual one has damaged his back) came and mowed my lawn for the last time at the end of last week and also replanted my two front-door-side tubs with violas, dwarf daffodils and polyanthus. Today he returned to water my Mares Tail weed with strong weed killer - we can but try. I must say it is pleasing to see everywhere looking a bit tidier again for the Winter.
Indoors my humidifier (or is it a de-humidifier?) is still going in the bedroom although it doesn't seem to be gathering much water any more and when I went into the bedroom to check on it this evening it had switched itself on to Auto. Does anyone out there know anything about the workings of such things?
