And then there were two

Looking a little weather beaten, but nonetheless still very beautiful, there are now two sunflowers out showing their happy faces to the sun, and more are on their way.

Rules, rules, rules

Hi, how are you doing? (Spell check just wanted to change this to how are you dozing!? Not a bad question on this scorching hot day today in the UK. Have you melted yet?)

Happy VE Day!

It’s something to celebrate, VE Day, 75 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. We haven’t got any bunting up, but plenty of our neighbours have.
