Woke up this morning and checked for notifications on my phone. Unfortunately, one was a message from the stables to say they had to cancel our horseriding lesson today (though we are now going to get a second free!). Anyway, all is not lost, as that does free us up to go swimming instead – and avoid any possible continuing Tour de France mayhem.
I also got notifications which got me reading blogs from both people I’ve been following and some I am now acquainted with. Altogether, the perfect inspiration button: makes me want to leap out of bed right now and repot my cucumbers.
No doubt the fact that the cucumbers in the above photo are small is because they are outside (albeit partly protected by a cloche). However, the one inside is doing marvelously, especially since it went into a new pot on Friday. Look at the flowers forming – hopefully that means cucumbers soon!
