Not quite sunrise this morning (which is 4.53 a.m.), but this was taken around 6 a.m. and looking across towards Llanelwedd, when it was still misty and just starting to glow and the sun dazzled me so much through the bathroom window, I couldn't see what photo I was taking!
I ventured down our track to the lane to collect the recycyling boxes. The sheeps were under the tree and leapt to their feet as I came near.
The distant hills were still milky with sleep, but promised a hot day (and it is now).
Sorry for the power lines in all of them - can't be avoided.
Our next door neighbour across the track was having a snooze . . .
Progress on the Paul's Himlayan Musk as more flowers open. It's on the top of the bank and quite difficult to get a closer photo really.
A work in progress. This side lawn was just SO boring, and I needed to plant a border of perennials. Below, on a medium pollen day, I extended the four feet or so already dug and planted, by a further 6 feet, and planted another dozen plants. It will need widening, so I can put some more plants in, staggered, so it isn't a straight line of plantings. I've sown some Pot Marigolds down the back today, and some other annuals will be sprinkled about to give it more colour. I will see if I can dig another foot or so of turf up and plant the Rudbeckia which is in a pot. It's a High Pollen day though, so I don't want to push my luck too much.
Finally, below, my current reading, which I can recommend as hard to put down and a great read. This is the 2nd of her books I've read, the other being The Shadowy Horses, and equally good.
