Day 140: Feeling Grateful For This Beautiful Weather During Lockdown

After work, I spent some time pottering around in the garden and made some space for the plants that I picked up from the supermarket yesterday. I got a bargain whilst walking down the fruit and veg aisle… three climbing plants for £5.

My daughter wanted to help in the garden, so we worked together to decide where they should go and then I showed her how to plant them. The two jasmine plants went in the area that I tidied last week where the wooden trellis is on the wall. A perfect place for them to eventually climb up.

We then planted the clematis in the wooden trellis box.

Getting out for a bit of exercise

Views from our walks this week

I’ve managed to get out for a lunchtime walk with my husband two days running now and the weather has been fantastic. There are definitely more people about, but then we are all allowed to have unlimited exercise now. It’s still very important to stick to the social distancing rules though.

I was surprised to see Costa open, but not so surprised to see a queue outside. I suppose it’s a treat for those that like it, although I’m not a coffee drinker myself.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Love to have climbing plants in the garden. It affords some height and makes it feel enclosed.
