I woke up quite refreshed after the second night sleeping in the tent in the garden. It was quite nice lying there listening to the birds tweeting. I then enjoyed my breakfast in the tent until a house fly took a nose dive into my cup of tea 😀, so I had to go and make another one.
The new indoor plant
After the girls painted the lounge for us a couple of weeks ago, my eldest made a suggestion to buy a nice tall plant and put in next to the TV. She chose a real Kentish Palm and a white pot and it arrived today. It came completely boxed up and I was impressed that email instructions had arrived from the company the day before letting me know how I should care of the plant as soon as it had arrived, due to it being in transit for a few days.
I had to unbox everything and then put the plant in a bucket of water for an hour outside in the shade. It’s now sitting in the lounge and is a lovely addition to the room.
The new outdoor plants
As I was waiting in a queue outside Asda yesterday I picked up a tray of six red salvia bedding plants. It was a lovely sunny day today so I spent most of it in the garden pottering about and finding places to put the plants. My husband and I had steak, chips and spinach in the garden with a glass of wine late afternoon. It was very pleasant.
There was a fire in the garden next door this evening very close to our fence, and although it’s all put out now, I decided against sleeping in the tent in the garden.
Looking forward to another sunny day tomorrow so that I can get out for a walk and do some more gardening. I also desperately need to do some cleaning inside the house as it’s all getting a bit out of control again.
Fly just wanted in on the fun! I love how house plants soften the look of a room. They supposedly help clean the air.
Do they? That’s good to know, thank you.
