1 This delicate tulip was blown over in the bitter winds and has now opened indoors.
2 The family left at 8.30 this morning and the house is disquietingly quiet! We’ve been putting away the fireguard, stair-gates, baby bean bags and toys. The old chest was my Dad’s. He trundled his books from Britain to Egypt to Bechuanaland in the Second World War and it is has another life now as a toy chest. Some of the toys in it were mine, many were our children’s and some are new for the Grand-babies. The cup-cake cases have been an excellent toy for 2 year old T who has stacked them, named their colours, paired them up and thrown them!
