carpe diem

Shook off my lethargy and was out in the garden by 8.30 a.m. with a cup of coffee
and a croissant,

ready to clear the greenhouse, empty the compost bin, take down the runner bean arcade
( a magnificent construction yielding very few beans but looking the business), and have a bonfire to burn the blighted tomato plants.
Raining by lunchtime.

I can watch Stephen Fry crossing America in a taxi now.

  1. Herein is something to cheer: Stephen Fry tootling from sea to shining sea in his black cab. Thank you for the introduction. It has been immensely interesting to view through an Englishman's eyes.
