Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Oxford and shows some punters quanting. (I am using punter here in the sense of people having an inexpert go at something.)
As forecast, our fine weather came to an end today. A grey day was brightened by the arrival of Dropscpone with the traditional bag of Friday treacle scones and it at least waited until lunchtime before the serious rain started.
This allowed me to get the drying green, the greenhouse grass and the front lawn mowed and to get a bit of useful dead heading in as well.
By the time I had done this, the rain was coming down so the only photographs that I took in the garden today were of views from the shelter of the back door and I put them in here without comment.
I didn’t mind the rain in the afternoon as I had a busy time preparing my prints for the Canonbie Flower Show tomorrow. When I had got everything sorted, I had to drive down to Canonbie to get my entries in and pay for them. Rather annoyingly, I wasn’t able to take my prints with me and put them up as the photos are only accepted tomorrow morning. This means an early start for me and Sandy as space is at a premium and if you want an eye level slot, you have to be prompt.
In the evening, Mike and Alison Tinker came round and Alison and I had our first burst of music for some time. Considering how long it was since we had last played we did remarkably well, often playing in the same key and finishing pieces at the same time.
