Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who was walking in the golden fields of East Wemyss today.
On our visit to Evie, we escaped the heavy rain that fell on other parts of London and the weather turned out to be much kinder today.
The sharp eyed Mrs Tootlepedal spotted a fox in the garden when we got up.
During the morning, I walked down to Evie’s nursery with her mother without any need for a coat.
Then I walked down to the tube station with Mrs Tootlepedal who was on her way to visit her mother with her brother. I took a picture of the clock tower near the station.
My third small excursion of the morning was to a well known low price supermarket to obtain some essential supplies.
As my daughter Annie was working from home, I had a bit of time on my hands which I was happy to spend doing nothing in particular. I did venture out into the garden and saw some insect action.
After lunch, she took a break from work and we walked round to her allotment where she put in some new plants and I did a little weeding and ate a couple of her strawberries.
We harvested done sweet peas, spinach, chard and beetroot . . .
As well as the veg, there were flowers to be seen, both at the allotment . . .
. . . and on Annie’s wall when we got home.
The sweet peas looked good in a jug.
Annie went back to working and I mowed the little front garden.
The day ended with the return of Evie from nursery and Mrs Tootlepedal from her visit. Mrs Tootlepedal’s railway journey was not without incident and at one moment she found herself on a train which half the passengers thought was going in one direction and half thought was going in the opposite direction.
Luckily, the confusion was sorted out before the train left the station!
We ate the veg from the allotment with our evening meal and tomorrow we hope to visit the allotment again.
