Today was the fourth day in a row of absolutely perfect autumn weather - sunny, still and around 16 Celsius. Ah! We've been able to play with the new tractor, digging big holes in a matter of seconds. Got lots of odd jobs done, including planting the rest of the bulbs I dug up a month ago.
I had such a lovely day gardening today while the others were at an auction. On a very tight budget I made do with what I could find around the place, with plants dug up and moved, pots reused and an old wooden gate for creating a secluded little spot to sit in the sun. As I sat with a cup of tea I watched bumblebees droning drunkenly in the rosemary and felt very satisfied with my efforts.
Some days are just perfect.
