Turmoil in the world but life continues almost as normal in our corner of Lincolnshire. Yesterday we had a tonne of gravel delivered which we intend to distribute in various parts of the garden. This morning we concentrated on a patch that we cleared last summer ready for ferns and hostas. We weeded the area, spread out some material that suppresses any new weeds, and then covered it with the light coloured gravel.
I’m very pleased with the result although I suspect the blackbirds might toss some of the gravel and make a mess. It will look better when the hosta foliage appears and the young ferns get bigger.
Paul baked some bread for lunch using a mix of spelt and normal bread flour. It turned out very well. Hopefully there will be flour on the shelves when we next venture out to the shops.
The girls have returned to Sarah’s apartment in Sydney; Kat is still waiting to find out if her flight will be available on Monday. In the meantime they are 'being sensible' and staying indoors.
