A Better Day

Flower of the day: Eryngiumeryngium

A better day today in many ways. For a start, it hasn’t rained which makes a change and so we had a very pleasant morning ride. I had mended my puncture and Dennis had recovered from his breathing problems so we were able to go round at an excellent speed.


While we were out having fun, Mrs Tootlepedal was hard at work on the next corner of the decorations. When this is finished, we are faced with the task of moving hundreds of books out of the bookcase. What fun. After morning coffee (embellished by a Lidl chocolate biscuit), Mrs Tootlepedal went off to weed a neighbour’s front garden. She is laid up after a knee operation. While she was doing that, I scarified and mowed both lawns and though they look a bit sad at the moment, it will pay off in a few days.

I actually was able to nerve myself to fill in and send off a form for the charity regulator during the afternoon and I took a collection of photos of flowers which will appear as flowers of the day in due course.

Altogether a most satisfactory day. (It’s just started to rain!)
