Bulbs, Scent and A Film

It has been a beautiful Autumn day today, cold, bright and sunny and I spent some time planting bulbs for a beautiful Spring.  So far I have planted up four of our chimney pots. The pictures are from the packets of bulbs………..

There are just five rather raggedy and weather beaten Clematis Montana Elizabeth flowers but their scent carries right along the path.

We have been to see a brilliant and very disturbing film this evening, “Sorry We Missed You” directed by Ken Loach. There was a live streamed Q&A afterwards with Ken Loach, the writer Paul Laverty and the four main actors. That was as passionate and hard hitting as the film which you really must see if at all possible. It is a heartbreaking record of so many lives today and why we in the UK need a change of government.

I like the philosophy expressed by Roald Dahl here:
