I’ve spent most of the day cleaning away the dust and mess from ten days of workman.
Four loads of washing hang drying on the garden walls, my gates and the field gate and the carpets have been shampooed with hot water and hints of lemon juice.
I had smoked salmon for lunch, eaten with long green beans cooked in garlic.
And had a break in the Churchyard where the blue Alkanet frames the yellow Welsh poppies in an Ukrainian flag display .
Exactly a year yesterday I planted the baby laburnum and when I visited it today I was happy to see it had flowered well and looked straight and tall and healthy.
