Saturday

 Quite a nice start to the day as I arrived up at Trebarvah for the changeover at Oamaru Barn
 Sailing club out in Mount's Bay
 Rather a tatty Meadow Brown
 Gatekeeper
 Grass getting longer and longer
 More little Cauliflower plantlets ready to go into the ground
 By 2pm the sky to the SE had changed and it was looking rather grey
 I checked the Met Office charts and it was rain moving up towards us - yet again it moved NE away from us - not a drop
 As we went out for our walkies this huge tractor was parked near The Victoria - wouldn't want to meet that on the lane as it's all getting very overgrown
 The Chicory in the second field is still there and flowering - although it's amongst tall grass this year which spoils it a bit
 Love these Daisies groving on the top of a wall up at Trebarvah
 As we walked down the hill, I noticed that all the weeds that have grown on the field since it was all killed off are dying - obviously weed killer of some sort has been applied again
 Wonder if that's what caused Tilly sudden attack of diarrhoea a few days ago - they probably should leave a notice when they've sprayed a field with two footpaths crossing it.

 The rain cloud heading off East
 Turned into a beautiful clear evening
 In the garden the Phormiums are flowering - not the prettiest flower, but the leaves are very wind hardy !
 Bought this at B&Q the other day - sadly the "under gardner" planted it without it's name tag.
 Not my favourite area - not keen on clashing colours, we tried to move the Day Lillies, but sadly all that happened was that we've now got even more of them elsewhere
 Beautiful Crocosmias

    1. Thanks for the name - We've put it next to our "junior" Agapanthus - we've been advised to treat the huge old clump roughly and dig some out as it's just not flowering like it used to - only 8 flowers so far ! Gorgeous day today - not what was forecast at all ! Sue
