Started with a damping down (much needed!) but the sky is brightening up.  It will be nice by lunchtime, so chores this morning and we will see this afternoon ...

Our front garden is designed to have just shrubs and a wilderness floor.

I'm planning to mow it to knock the ivy etc', out, and Mrs Growster asked me a few minutes ago, whether I'd done it!

Totally forgot, but the lawn looks great, and so does the kerb stuff outside The Turrets!

Admittted defeat with my homegrown aubergine plants which never recovered from a flea beetle assault so replace them with store bought plants, first time I've done that :(
Bit of weeding and then wandered off home as it was getting dark.

I germinated some aubergines then fried them in the greenhouse in the first wave of hot weather 🙄 so I bought 2 & theyre romping away

Up bright and breezy but it's a drizzly start to the day, so indoorsy stuff on the 'to do' list.

Cat's got her grumpy head on, cos the door is shut, I let her out and she runs straight back in  ::) Can't win can I?
Have a good day  :)

The cat here has a grump head on this morning as well.  Much prowling about and moaning, but after stuffing his face and sitting on my knee for a bit, he stalked off to bury himself in the duvet.

I've left him to it and gone to work :lol:

JRT keeps chasing bees, andhasn't learned what happens the last time she ate one...

I spied the biggest grass snake I've ever seen this morning, down on The Patch! It was basking on a section of old greenhouse, and while I couldn't see its head or tail, it must have been at least a yard long, and its girth was as big as the average salt cellar!

Sadly, one got caught in a net a few years ago, and presumably a fox got to it before I did, but this feller was a monster, and with beautiful colouring! I wish I'd had my camera, but with a very, very long telefoto lens..:0)

Ooh yuk, Id have been back at the Towers quick as a wink, Im terrified of snakes.
My cats are grumpy today as Im not letting them past the kitchen door today as someone left a deposit on the doormat! I think I know who it is as shes feeling sorry for herself.
