No post yesterday. Sorry, just too tired after lots of dashing about basically. They have been resurfacing the roads around here for the past few weeks, which means if you want to go anywhere you are likely to quite suddenly come across a 'Road Closed' sign and have to turn round, go back and try another way. This meant that when going to play ukuleles for the elderly yesterday in the village of Bainbridge in Wensleydale I had to take the long route. Today we have played for an Alzheimer's Group in a Day Centre - I think they enjoyed us.
Other news is that -joy of joys - it has rained quite heavily for a couple of hours today and is still cloudy - so there might even be more. What a difference the rain has made to the garden. Everything looks so much brighter. The forecast for the weekend is for hot weather again (with a possibility of rain next week) but this weather will have done some good and will negate the need to water the gardens and pots for a couple of days at least.
Courgettes and Patty pans are coming thick and fast now. I still have Ratatouille left to eat up so shall have to begin giving them away. My gardening job for the week-end is to investigate local suppliers of water butts to see if anyone has a square one. This would fit neatly against the wall and seems to me to be a much better idea than a round one. If I can't locate one then I shall have to buy on line - but I always like to use local suppliers where possible.
I must say that President Trump's visit does seem farcical - and the amount of entourage in the form of security that he has brought with him is mind-boggling. I wish I could make out more about the man. I have been in Trump Tower in New York. It is all gold plate and gloss walls. All show in other words. I do wish I could make my mind up exactly what the man was like - but then we hardly know what our neighbour is like do we, so how can we know about folk further afield. As my father used to say -"Everybody's queer except me and thee and thee's a bit peculiar".
