This morning, I woke up to rain but when I looked out the French doors at the back
it was reasonably light and the wind seemed bearable.
As I had just offered a lady on Freegle most of my collection of plant pots, I needed to get out there to retrieve them from the shed. It was just as well therefore that I could get the door open and not get blown off course on the way down the garden.
Inside the shed it was blissful – if only there was more room to sit down. Oh well, today it felt snug as I rummaged around, which is the main thing.
Aside from the plant pots, I came across a huge plastic teapot and accompanying teacups and saucers which my daughter must have stopped playing with many years ago. There was also a large amount of black plastic sheeting which I had originally intended as pond lining but which turned out not to be suitable.
Perhaps the liner will be useful for the plant pot lady and the teapot has already been given to another Freegler who collected other stuff from me today. So both the shed and the house are already feeling somewhat roomier than at the start of the day.
There was a heavy downpour and the wind picked up speed after I’d got the pots of various kinds and black plastic sheeting into the house. But lo and behold, it turned sunny in the afternoon, so as I’d promised myself yesterday, the broad beans did get sown as well.
