Those pesky squirrels have been burying their acorns so vigorously in the agapanthus pots that they have exposed the roots! I hadn't been out in the garden much, so only spot the mischief today. We've added some earth, and put a cloche over one pot, and an upturned empty hanging basket from over the other.
It's been entertaining watching the squirrels defend their buried acorns from the magpies - surely the magpies have no interest in acorns?
It's been so tempting to add books to the 'keep' pile rather than charity bags or ziffit boxes. I have put 'the Quiet Gentleman' by Georgette Heyer, '84 Charing Cross Road' by Helen Hanff and 'The Theatrical Tapes of Leonard Thynne' by Adrian Plass to one side. They are all old favourites; once I have finished them I'll probably send them on their way... although I'm wavering over '84 Charing Cross Road'.
I have fond memories of the second hand bookshops there. When I was getting ready to start university a pianist friend went with me to help buy the huge quantity of music recommended by the tutors and I've still got most of it.
We've nearly completed phase 1 of the Great Bedroom Upheaval, which was completely clearing the four packed bookshelves running the full width of the bed. Now the shelves just need to come down, ready for Moving The Wardrobes.....
Meanwhile, it's quiz night (Only Connect and University Challenge) followed by Masterchef. Perfect for relaxing after all that hard work.
