spent a few minutes this morning pulling grass out of a flower bed and topping up the water in the pond…

sun was shining all day and it was warm

when I got home I sat outside for a while and talked with my daughter about my upcoming visit…

the pond was looking good…

  
and the fish appeared happy… lots of chasing around so maybe we will have babies before too long…

  
things are starting to bloom…

  
a bit amazed that the Veronica is blooming before the poppies… sadly it looks like there will only be seven poppies… the first summer after George died we must have had fifty blooms…

glad to have spent time in the garden before organizing supper… have to take every opportunity to be outside when there is a nice day…

  
the planters around the deck are doing nicely… first time I’ve had this colour lobelia… looks good…

the pond may still be leaking a bit but I am thrilled with the sheet of water falling from the rock… think I will run a hose under the deck and just below the grass to the edge of the pond… then when it needs to be topped up, it will be a simple turn of the tap to fill it…

feeling more energy and getting the odd job done during the week, which has been unusual for quite some time…
