Blip-181

The new one is doing very well, but sadly one of my older white ones seems to be dying.

Hail

Blip-171

I altered my plans for today when I saw the forecast showing hail during the morning. In fact it didn’t fall until just after 12:00, but it was quite a sharp fall, and I was glad I wan’t out in it.

Although I can still get up and down stairs reasonably well, I decided I should be prepared and convert the pantry to a downstairs loo. They are due to start work on Monday, but in the meantime I have cleared everything out – most of it has gone into what was originally the coal house, and later my darkroom.

Alas, the flowers are finished now, but they brightened up the living room for several weeks.
