Paint & Pot

A shade business never yields a sunny life - B.C.Forbes
I had a lie-in,
So missed "Sounds of the 60s".
Enjoyed a tea in bed...↓
We had plans for the garden in the sunshine.
All the windows got opened up...
(including the kid's windows)
Those big big sunglasses were put on↓
Now off to B&M to get more garden stones...↓

As we left, the car park was filling up
When we got home,
We had a delivery for the garden↓
After planting a few plants..
Liquid lunch time↓
Back out in the garden...
 We added mash to the garden gate and to the garden arch...
(Because a plant will be growing up the arch)
 Coffee time↑
 The bench has been repainted↑
 So has the garden chairs↑
Hubby carries on painting the garden fences,
While I go up to work with some great tunes..
 When I get back, we had a nice easy evening meal...
The movie for tonight is:
I had a peak at the Birthdays..
