Today has been something of a non day, mainly because I slept so badly last night. I sat up reading for a good part of the night and when I finally did drop off of course it meant that I slept in this morning and didn't wake until almost nine. I was going to a virtual coffee morning at ten so it was all a bit rushed. I might only be sitting on my computer chair but I could hardly attend in my P J's.
By the time I had cooked my lunch (lemon sole with Majorcan new potatoes, chantennay carrots and the rest of the spinach, followed by a baked apple stuffed with butter and honey and sat down with my cup of tea I dropped off again and woke up an hour later. Just time to go out into the garden to water my sturdy hellebore seedlings. I intend to transplant some of them into a pot so they need a good water so that I can do it tomorrow. It is impossible to buy compost round here but luckily H, my neighbour - also a keen gardener - came round with a tub of her compost so I shall pot them on tomorrow. They are so sturdy it seems a shame not to try to grow them on - some left in the garden by their 'mother' plant and some in a pot.
It has been another lovely day although the sun was slow to break through the cloud this morning and towards the end of the afternoon it clouded in again. It is set to turn colder from the North and to get windy. Typical gardening weather - just as my Pink Lady Iris is ready to bloom it is coming cold and the wind is going to increase.
I have just typed this while eating a bacon, brie and cranberry toastie - divine. I shouldn't have had it really after that large lunch - but I just fancied it - and as the news about Covid 19 (we now have gone over the twenty thousand deaths)
was depressing news I decided to go ahead. We have to try everything to keep cheerful don't we?
So keep calm and carry on seems to be the message today. Take care everyone.
