The Bush Is Now Bare!

In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt - Margaret Atwood.
Welcome to Saturday🎈
I was up before the alarm,
As I wanted to listen to "Sounds of the 60s".
 We listened to it, in a warm bed with a cup of tea. Later on we had breakfast.
Nice ride out in Sexy Beast..

The wind and rain was lashing at the Sexy Beast while onto work I went.
Even the temperatures were falling ↘↘↘
As it was far too windy and the rain was lashing down....
So no pictures of the surrounding countryside today.... 
The rain was still coming down when I got home....
 I enjoyed cheese on toast with coffee.
  The rain stopped and the sun came out!
After I finished the other job,
I need a nice chicken stir fry,
with plenty of garlic, ginger and spinach thrown in....
We watched:
 The wind was still banging my wind chimes..
That banging gives me ideas....
