Yesterday I talked to three people ;) It makes me laugh at the pathetic note I have just achieved, for I was so happy planting my beans into the big plastic gardening bags, a job well done. Now on the path today a small pot of sweet peas stand from a friend.
Who were the three people, well my son for one in Bath, Nigel across the road for another. I had just cut down the top of a hawthorn bush that has grown exponentially over the winter rains outside the fencing at the front, there are at least five of them. It was David who had drawn my attention to them because he offered to trim them. I talked to Nigel and offered him the cuttings for his goats, we all worry about his wife in this lockdown as she has to have treatment at the hospital but it seems she is still getting it. I also worry about his goats and sheep as well, because every day he sets off with Sasha his dog and a plastic sack over his shoulder to cut down more branches for his livestock.
Then Jo phoned in the afternoon, to talk and as always she made me laugh about the tale of the large pork chops from Daisys. The trouble with Daisy Garden Centre that having grasped the nettle of online selling and branching out into food, they have overstretched their capabilities. And now everything gets put in one box, i.e. frozen dripping pork chops with seed packets and of course sweet pea pot plants, I just knew she would have to offer me one of the dozen plant pots.
So we move from day to day in our worlds, cold today but the sun is trying to break through, perhaps it will be warm enough when Irene comes to talk over the wall at 3 p.m. But hopefully it will not be too long because I don't have much news!
