Saturday and Sunday have been totally different days this weekend.
Yesterday was blue skies and sunshine, and it was lovely to sit on the deck all afternoon and enjoy it (sitting under the umbrella as I burn so easily).
The garden was bright with flowers and the birds were busy doing their Spring Thing and chirping from all the trees around us.
One of our neighbour’s trees has sparrows building a nest in it, still visible at the moment, but once the tree comes fully into leaf the nest will be well-nigh invisible.
Then today, Sunday, we have had heavy cloud cover all day, along with a bit of wind.
The rain arrived late this afternoon, but I managed to pick some Californian Poppies before it came. Their separated petals are now sitting in the dehydrator – I find it takes about 20 hours to dry them properly (at 35 degC), but they make a great splash of orange colour in a dried flower mixture.
That, and the writing up of a few lists, is all I have managed today. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive.
Did you know that petting your cat or dog can help to lower your blood pressure?
Time to get petting! 😊
