A Full Day

Today’s flower is a Danish Flag

It was a pleasant day today in spite of a bit of a chill in the north easterly wind. I went round the usual morning ride the wrong way because of the change in the wind but it takes about the same time whichever way you go. Sometimes people ask me if it doesn’t get a bit boring going  round the same ride day after day but it is always different. The temperature, the wind speed, the wind direction, the state of your health, the birds you see, the traffic you meet,  all of these make for an endless variety. It certainly beats commuting to work every day.

In the afternoon, Mrs Tootlepedal went out to do some community weeding at a nearby public bed which was full of dead phormiums. While she was employed in this public spirited action, I went and played golf.  When I got back, I discovered that the birds had started eating the raspberries which they normally leave alone so we erected a raspberry net which I hope will keep the little blighters off the fruit.

In the evening, Mrs T then went out again on community business to water the hanging baskets in the High Street with a friend and I went off to the Archive Centre for our usual Thursday session followed by a visit to the beer research centre. On our return we caught a beautiful sunset but by the time I got into the house, it had dropped a little low to catch the full beauty of it.
