My sister Ann gave me a plant pot stand for my birthday so , today as it’s sunny, I have been playing around with it as well as filling the hanging baskets with delicate pink annuals, which replace the pinks underneath the honeysuckle
It’s Mindful work which I’m good at treating myself in between with glasses of iced coffee laced with agave nectar.
The cottage shines in the sun
It kind of comes alive and seems even to breath with its windows open and a breeze wandering the rooms from the south west.
The dogs mooch into the back garden to lie in the sun and I play ludovico Einsudi and Christopher Beck’s Under The Tuscan Sun as I plant up and water in.
I found myself scanning the shaded bit of wall for Albert too
Chic Eleanor called around this afternoon, with a bunch of peonies, she stayed for coffee
I’m working tomorrow as a favour for a colleague
So I will be mindful and quiet for the rest of today.
Thanks to everyone for my best wishes yesterday
They were gratefully received
