A bit of light weeding . . .
Yesterday's loaf, which was a Sunflower loaf, half and half wholemeal, with some spelt flour in too. Scrummy.
This morning I baked a batch of Raspberry Muffins (raspberries from the garden) to take into Carmarthen Antiques Centre as they celebrated two years trading in their new building yesterday. They were gratefully received!
Meanwhile, yesterday afternoon I got busy in the garden, using the strimmer, and then (wo)manpower to remove the nettles, brambles and waist-high grass which had got everywhere during June, when I couldn't get out there because of the pollen levels.
I didn't take a "before" photo but here is after. The ancient roserie de l'Hay rose is no longer held in thrall of grass/brambles/nettles . . . I also edged the top end of the driveway, but you can't see that.
Work in progress here - you can see how overgrown it is in the paddock plot. The Lemon Balm is about 2 feet high and the weeds (grass) taller still.
Above and below: yet to do . . . I'll get there in the end.
However, this weekend I am off to Sheffield to stay with our eldest daughter Tam, so it will have to wait until my return . . .
