Blossom on the tree
And more blossom
There are lots of these trees outside my house, I think they're Horse Chestnuts. I was passing yesterday when I noticed how pretty the blossom looked. I had to take a photo before the blossom dies and it's too late. I only had my mobile phone with me, but I'm really pleased with how well the photos have come out. I will do a LO using the photos tomorrow. Someone told me that there's a disease which is attacking Horse Chestnuts, it would be a shame if these gorgeous trees died.
At last Friday has arrived, it's bad wishing your life away isn't it? But I seem to live from one holiday to the next. I love my job, but I love being at home more. So where do you think I will be spending most of next week? Yes, at my desk. Actually, if the weather is OK I'd like to do some gardening. I love gardening, but I've got arthritis in my hands and I find it too painful to do much gardening these days. Maybe if I do an hour each morning I would be able to knock the garden into shape.
When we moved here my garden was a wasteland really and I worked really hard on it to make it like it is now. I had a builder to build the terrace and the patio, and family came and helped clear the rubbish out, but I did all the actual gardening. I laid all the turf too!! Very hard work, but worth it.
Here's a before shot:
And here's what it's like now:
My daughter has two friends staying tonight so I'd better go and get the living room organised for them to crash out.
See you tomorrow.
