Sing it, yeah!



For once, it's a beautifully sunny and warm Bank Holiday weekend! Usually we're in cagoules in the UK, but today we were bathed in sunshine as we toiled away at the extensive gardens here at Dolores Delargo Towers: tackling the benighted Fuchsia Gall Mite by judicious (and on some plants, drastic) pruning; watering and feeding; and generally tidying one's unruly bush...

The glorious weather is set to continue throughout the long weekend, with highs of 27C predicted for Monday. I'm with birthday boy Dr. Alban (who blows out sixty candles today) - let's Sing Hallelujah!

  2. Oh! I'd love to sit on that bench with a morning coffee or an afternoon vino!

    1. On a day off such as today, I will spend a whole day on that bench (all the way from coffee to booze time) - and it is very light, so easy to move, following the sun... Jx

  3. We've been very spoiled with Bank Holiday weather this year (well, in Norfolk, anyway). As far as memory serves, every one has been bright and sunny (if not entirely warm...), and I would happily have spent every one of them in your oasis in the city - beautiful (gall mites be buggered)!
