Bank holiday weekend, three days off from work and potentially three days of bliss. And it was especially as we didn't make any plans beforehand apart from mainly staying at home and do as much gardening as we could.
|Nevermind the hosepipe....|
Typical of a bank holiday weekend here the sun barely made an appearance. Fortunately it was still warm and there were long intervals between the odd drizzle so we still managed to do lots of gardening.
|The rare occasion that sun made an appearance, and just had to take a photo - Mahonia gracilipes|
|And the sun's still there! Actinidia kolomikta|
|And the clouds return - Schefflera delavayi|
We didn't aim for any particular project to do but rather a general catch up of various garden chores to get it ready for coming warmer months.
|It wasn't planned but a rather spontaneous tweaking of the side passage was done|
Even the houseplants got some attention and maintenance, not that we have many, in fact we barely have any. But the odd one here and there in the house is good, recognising its benefits after nearly banishing them all a year or so ago. Like this pot of begonia in the office, it's not much but nice to see and takes the edge of the concept of an office being a stark, functional space.
|Indoor plants can improve the overall look of the office, as can bright green bunnies!|
As it was grey for most of the weekend photo taking was very limited due to poor lighting. Hopefully in the next few days we'll be able to take more. And typical of a bank holiday weekend too, the forecast over the following days will be sunny and warm. On the days we're back at work. Oh well...
