garden bits

Opened this morning, the pond has the first of the Marsh Marigolds gleaming in the occasional sunshine. Fond memories of them along the Evenlode valley in my childhood.

I had a bag of gravel delivered this morning – at 0830h! Fortunately, I was up and dressed, as my sleep pattern has been disturbed (partly by visits to Green Mount and partly by clock change). So this afternoon I was able to extend the gravel bit in the front garden to accommodate the new brown “garden waste” bin.
