Thursday 24 May 2012: Splish Splash
Had a cup of tea with my parents this morning - I wanted to check if Dad was ok, after he fell off a high ladder while tree-lopping yesterday. He's only 62, very active, usually to be found camper-vanning around Cornwall, but he did look a sorry state today. Whiplash and a split lip, repeating 'I nearly landed on the shears'!!! Good grief.
got a tan tidied the garden this afternoon, and blew up the new paddling pool. Headrush! Not a clever thing to do in the blazing midday sun...
I had a half decent shot of a bee on some lavender, but this is the photograph I'll look back on fondly, now I've muted the colour because it was SCREAMINGLY PINKYELLOWGREEN :-/
A strawberry Cornetto, squealing when a bug lands in your little pool and splashing the dog to cool him down. Does it get better than that when you're eight years old? :)
