Well today has been a sort of lazy day. Okay I've been doing some sewing - only about 4 hours of it, but the sun decided to come out on odd occasions and so I popped out to take some pictures of the plants and of course Pippin had to accompany me.....



He decided to sit on the "straw" I lovingly call my lawn, and those weeds will soon be gone cos I've been putting the weedkiller gel on them......


Then when we went back to the driveway, he espied the tray had filled with rainwater and decided to have a quick drink ......... you can't see from this picture but he's got his paws in the water...........


He didn't seem to mind his feet getting wet at all..............


Then I noticed I had a sycamore tree trying to start in the garden - that's coming out right away I can tell you!!!!! I've got so many of these in my garden they are driving me crazy..............




I also noticed these weird plants. They are obviously the seeds of some kind of flower/plant. It starts out green, then gradually turns a bright red. If anyone can tell me what this is I'd be very grateful..............


This is a lone nasturtium but it won't be long before many more of his friends will join him. So I'll have a nice colourful display soon from these. Luckily he's in amongst some other lilies about to bloom. Great eh?

Okay that's about it - Mandi has at last finished with her school job. She's feeling very fragile at the moment, it's a scary thing to be without a job and having her husband 3,000 miles away and her house needing repairs - poor girl. Hopefully she'll be up to stay with me for a couple of days next week. Her neighbour will look after her cat Boo, and I'll look after her.

So that's my blog for today - hope everyone is well and we'll speak soon. xxx
