The garden is open for business, When Harry met Ron and Bunny and Spring

Bliss, finally a beautiful day. Morning  fitness with Mick, and there was a dash to the beach.  The sun so warm we spilled out straight after lunch and it was only rain that pushed us back inside at 3.15pm! Gerry and Reg took a walk and fed the fish. Meg helped with sweeping.

Ethel and Ethne loved listening to the spring sounds  and views (yes, daffodils!) , Kay and Betty chatting away and all four watching men at work.  And men we did have! Ron continued with digging out what was a very big and prickly shrub and Harry helping out and supervising. And as you would expect they moved after that to discuss the important aspects of wisteria 🙂  It was great to see both Harry and Ron enjoying doing something they love and enjoying each other’s company. And if that was not enough Harry has now got a second garden mate – Bunny. Where do you find Bunny on the terrace? Under the raised beds cleaning the paving 🙂

And the gardening was followed by another wonderful live music session / music quiz. As usual Eileen and Clare enjoyed the music tremendously watching John’s playing. We all had a super day!Let’s pray for more days like that…

Messing about in the garden

Our pond got a bit overgrown with greenery and so we had a bit of a clear-up today. Residents Rene and Ruth did a great job – now we can see the fish again!







And the pupils of Beacon School came for their regular gardening visit today (unfortunately I cant show any photos of the children on this blog) and as before they did a fantastic job. They thinned out the salad vegetables that they had sown earlier this year, staked out tomatoes, weeded the vegetable bed, collected eggs from the chcickens, prepared soil, and planted out cabbages and beansprouts for later in the year. Phew!
