Last Sunday we had sun. You know, that big orb of white/yellow that sits in the sky and makes everything warm and bright. I took this photo late in the afternoon and it was the last of the brightness before it set behind the trees.
We had decided to have a BBQ in the garden, the first this year. The whole weekend was nice and Graham managed to cut the grass and fix the rest of the patio furniture together. So Sunday we were free to enjoy the garden. I was lovely and warm up until late afternoon. And by the time we got the BBQ going it had cooled down considerably. It was still nice to sit outside though, and the BBQ was nice.
We are thinking now of getting a new BBQ though as ours has become a little old and rusty. I’ve bought some paint for the shed (Mulberry colour) and we will get around to painting the fences. I want some kind of pot holder for my plant pots. I wish Graham was a bit more ‘handy’ as we seem to have a lot of wood going spare. I’m pretty sure I could have put something together once upon a time, but I am physically not able any more….maybe I could get a collaboration going with Graham, but he really doesn’t like being told what to do.
We also have to dig up our old swing set and get rid of the slide. The kids are too old for them now. Although the Little Man wants us to keep the trampoline, last year all they did was sit on it with their tablets! I might see about buying a tent cover for it.
I am determined that this year our garden will look better. My trees are growing well, I will have to take photos but I can’t actually get into the garden myself without help (or my wheelchair which resides in the boot of the car and means I am confined to the house.)
The sun is shining again this Sunday, but we’ve been promised rain later, so no BBQ….and it’s so cold! what a difference a week makes.
