All done and dusted!
I think I shall sleep well tonight! Keith went off to clear some of the contents of his workshop at the car boot sale, so I got up when he did and put in another 3 hours' housework (I know how to have fun!!) I picked a little posy from the garden and popped it into my big Scandy Torquay jug, then set to and baked a batch of Blackberry and Apple Muffins to dress the table, and offer to the Agent (who ate two and was sent home with another four to save me from temptation!)
The sun has shone all day and the Agent took all the necessary photos, and his daughter will come and measure up for the floor plan next week. We should be up and selling on Monday. The Agent loves our house, so I am hoping his enthusiasm will help to find a new owner.
Above and below: close ups of Vielchenblau - love the stripey petals.
I shall have to get some more compost tomorrow and some more "instant colour" in the way of plants to dot around the borders to fill the gaps where plants have bloomed and been cut back. The Geums will flower again and the next flush of roses will soon be out, but it's a bit green out there today. Fortunately Paul's Himalayan Musk is out right across the garden and has stolen the show.
A day of rest tomorrow I think . . .
