Mondays come round with increasing rapidity - I for one don't find that time goes slowly at all; the days simply fly by. Friend W and I have just had virtual tea with crumpets and honey with our two friends P and D in Windermere. They actually had the crumpets there to eat - we just imagined this end. As I have sat here at my lap top the sun has emerged at last and it is a bit warmer but the wind is still strong.
The long grass on the piece of waste ground opposite has been cut today and I must say that it does look a whole lot neater - and the cut has removed a whole lot of dandelion 'clocks' before they have had a lot of time to seed. So just in time. But really I feel sorry for the poor old dandelion - it is much maligned. Individually the flowers are really very pretty - as are the seed heads. It is just their invasive quality which puts us off them.
Our friends in the Lakes said it had rained steadily there for several hours when we met them on Zoom. No such luck here; the day has now (2 hours later) gone grey and chilly. If only those clouds would drop a good rain for an hour or two.
It is so easy if one is a gardener to become obsessed with looking at the sky and asking repeatedly for rain at this time of the year, particularly in a year such as this when we are so confined with what we can and can't do.
There doesn't seem much to write about today - or maybe it is just that I have a day when I don't feel particularly inspired - so sorry folks - that's it. See you tomorrow, when hopefully there will be something which catches my imagination.
