Beautiful sunny hot day ..started off at the Dakota Cafe.   Time to tackle some overgrown plants.  Marjoram in particular.  It had grown into a giant bush.   Fully laden with tiny white flowers which the bees loved .. so I had to wait till the flowers were all gone before attacking it.  Trimming it way down, low to the ground.

And I welcomed the opportunity to use my new watering wand from Lee Valley.  The aluminum one with brass fittings.  Light as a feather and watered everything fully.  Glad to see that the hardy heat-loving herbs are doing well.  Tough little plants.   And they have grown immensely in the past 3 years.    They started off as little 4″ plants and now are 2 to 3 feet in height and width!  Tenacity!

Took a little break for breakfast .. my favourite sandwich in a bun and a pot of tea.   Relaxed and watched the skies as I munched away & sipped on my tea.

What a view!  Vistas of sky, mountains, planes!  Two hawks flying and fluttering high up in the skies.

Colourful planes & helicopters caught my attention.

Finally .. back to weeding and watering.

A happy morning.

Then back home and the shopping  and “this and that” have taken up hours.  And I just want to go outside and play.

Which I will do shortly.
