Happy Spring Bank Holiday to those in GB & Happy Memorial Day to those in the US of A.
The SPSH list was published last week. I hope that you all join in with one or all that you find on this fun quest. I have already printed my list off with notes of what & where I can find items on the list. If you missed, the list.
2018 SPSH List
After such a cold start to spring, we have finally got the patio set up & oh it is such a delight to have morning tea there. All my pots of flowers are planted & my tomato plants in. We are still on a quest for a water feature.
My Hellebores have bloomed & I am most surprised that mine have flowers quite upright on the stems ... does this mean mine are mutant?! No matter, I am just pleased that the wild bunnies did not get either of them over the winter.
On Saturday the farmer behind us sprayed the Winter Wheat with a herbicide that required as to stay indoors for a couple of hours while the spray settled. It smelt horrible but I know necessary.
And speaking of war on insects & the like, my little forest of Asiatic Lilies (pink) is growing rapidly but as soon as I see one of the nasty horrible invading red Japanese Lily bugs, I spray with insecticidal soap & if the spray bottle isn't close at hand, I keep two flat stones close by for squishing the little buggers. I use to have another grouping but I was lax in my war on the beetle & they destroyed it & now this grouping is a last stand.
Ordering tickets for Man of La Mancha - this is the only musical that Mr Man likes. We have seen before but this one is at a new to us theatre.
I hope that no matter where you are, you get a moment or two to savour the day, I know I'll be having a cup or two in my happy place - the patio.
