In the garden ... poppy, clematis, bacopa secrets, rambling rose, and petunias. These are possibilities for the SPSH No 7 - What's In Bloom, although Blogger has done something to the colours and exposure so I will need to correct that.
I met L for lunch yesterday. It was good to see her, though a bit subdued as the person she was a carer for had died at the weekend and she was understandably upset. On the other hand I spoke to J later on and she is beside herself with excitement as she is celebrating the arrival of her first grandchild.
The details for the choir in person outdoor workshop have been published and the decision has been made for me - the date clashes with an online memorial event I'm going to, so I won't be able to attend the choir event. To be honest, I am relieved more than disappointed as some of the arrangements were rather too lax for my liking considering the current situation so this saves me dithering about what to do!
Today I have a ticket for my first National Trust visit this year. This afternoon I'm off to The Courts Garden which is very close to home, about ten minutes drive to the next village. It's one of my favourite places and it's been too long since I last visited.
Before that I want to go to town to buy a gift for J's new grandbaby, pick up some flowers for L, and I'll take the opportunity to fill the petrol tank while I'm there. Next, a return visit to the garden centre to get some more pots but I think I'll put off buying the rest of the annuals until next week. Then a quick dash round the Tesco Express which is next door to the garden centre to buy the fruit and salad stuff, and I'll be set up for the week.
