A quick note about the garden. Sadly the cat-and-car-related excitement of the last couple of weeks has not been good for it. Also, it has rained a lot. The result is that some of my seedlings that should really have been potted out weeks ago have perished, and everything else is looking disturbingly shaggy. With a bit of luck I can do some mowing this week, if the rain holds off, and then I can do real gardening at the weekend.
I did get some weeding and trimming done yesterday, which is fortunate, as our front steps were starting to look like we had pricked our fingers and gone to sleep for a 100 years.
I can see a hawthorn in bloom from the upstairs window that has to be in our garden somewhere, but I have no idea where the trunk might be attached. It's a bit disturbing.
