Wednesday.


Still not much in the garden - snowdrops, crocii,  hellebore, and a few primula. So above and below are snapshots of flowers in the house. Above is a bunch of daffs I bought Ann about ten days ago, when they were  in bud. They are lasting well, and the scent is lovely.  Below is an orchid that Ann was given in December - they always seem to flower for a long while.


Having done a good deal of restoration in the workshop earlier this week, we now seem to have entered the socialising part of the week. Today Ron and Sue (whose home we visited last Wednesday with the U3A Collectors' Club) came and had tea with us. Ann gave them fruit cake and biscuits. Hadn't really met them before, but we seem to have a good deal in common. Tomorrow we're going to a charity tea at Stoke by Nayland with John and Gloria. Hilary is coming with us. Tomorrow evening we're having dinner with Jordan and Suzanne, they've recently moved house (within Highdale) and I think it's going to be a sort of house warming party. Plan to take them a pair of candlesticks (and candles) as a house warming (or rather house lighting) present. Must also buy Suzanne a flowering plant, if I can find one (or a bunch of daffodills if I can't). Ann says she will find something for the children (each).
As it's Wednesday it's been a long day;  and  I think we're going to have a reasonably early night.
                                                                    So -
                                                               Good Night All.

Now that you've announced publicly that you are buying flowers for your wife, we'll all have to do it.

Mike and Ann said...

Sorry, Sir B. Didn't think of that. Very selfish of me...... But , on the other hand, buying flowers for the Memsahib is among the more basic of the husbandly duties, I think.

By the way Steve, do you and Liz fancy brekky, usual place, this coming Saturday?

Sir Bruin said...

That sounds like a plan. I'll speak to "She who must be obeyed" when I get home. Will get back to you ASAP.

Sir Bruin said...

We are good to go for brekky on Saturday. Shall we pick you up around 9 ish?

Mike and Ann said...

That sounds grand Steve. Yes, please; but do not forget that it's my turn to pick up the tab. No arguments. I plead senility - sorry, I mean, of course, seniority. see you on Saturday.
Cheers, Mike.

Sir Bruin said...

Excellent! We will see you on Saturday. I promise not to argue, sir.

I also have a bunch of daffs on the kitchen table and am proud to say they came from the garden:)

That only goes to show Pat, that once again your area is at least a fortnight ahead of ours weatherwise.
