I'm cold!

Blimey, it feels as though early spring has returned. Loads of rain and a cold wind has returned to this part of Norfolk. I thought I might have finished making soup for lunches, but no, some is certainly getting made today!

Herewith a shot of the front garden:
The poppies have flopped with the rain but it certainly looks better than just a few short weeks ago.

Not much else to say so have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope the weather is kind to you.

Poor Andy Pandy...

It is so hard to watch someone you support being lack lustre and frustrated. Last nights match with Andy Murray against Fognini was of that vain, as in quite a few of his latest matches.

He played in almost total silence except at the end when he shouted "I can't move, why can't I move?"

Lack of movement was very apparent. Most drop shots by Fognini were left, reaching for out of reach shots were left etc. He would normally be chasing every ball, stretching for everything but he just couldn't, it was very odd.

He is most definately out of sorts. Ah well, Bedene did well initially against Novak, Kyle and Jamie are both playing today.

The rain has arrived which should enable me to get some much needed stakes into the ground to support drooping plants. Might have to think about spraying the tomatoes with Disprin to try and keep the blight at bay. I have done this for a few years now and it seems to work or else I have been very lucky.

Poppies and Iris

The front garden (and back) are now leaping into life and colour:
Aqualeiga, iris and poppies are in full bloom with the peony waiting in the background to flower shortly.

The tomatoes have been planted outside in the ground (protected by fleece for a few days), the climbing beans as well. Lettuce have taken, a few beetroot and radish, and carrots have decided to get going at last. The 4th set of peas have finally decided to make an appearance - yah!
