Sunshine at last! It’s been very dull this week, not so good for all this photography. Nicholas was home for 1 night between holidays (don’t ask!), so we cycled into town for a coffee and a bit of shopping:
The floral displays are just gorgeous at the moment, wish I had more time (and sun) to get better photos! Sorry this one is a bit blurry.
Time for lunch and a catch up on my notes and computer forums
Sweeping the patio. We have a large cedar tree which drops it’s needles all over the patio and then they get trodden in to the house!
A lovely hour spent gardening. I tidied up this phormium, cutting out the dead stuff – it looks much better now! Don’t forget Merlin’s tea!
It’s the seafront fayre in our town today. There are fun fair rides and market stalls all along the prom:
We walked into town along the seafront so we could have dinner in our favourite Italian restaurant ‘Pomodoro e Mozzarella’, which is run by an Italian family and has a lovely, lively atmosphere.
Walking back through Marine Gardens, these lavender bushes smell fabulous and I just love this planting of the yellow yarrow with the white agapanthus!
Here’s something I’ve been meaning to capture all week. The gas board are putting in new pipework just round the corner and we walk past it nearly every night on our dog walks!
