A Moment, A Love, A Dream, A Laugh
So much rain; so much wind. Where is the summer?
Do you remember the old summers? Do you??
Summers were warm, and light and we played outside til 10 pm at night - and it was still day time .
I don't remember the rain.
I remember calamine lotion and lumpy arms.
I don't remember it raining... ever.
It must have. The grass was green.
Today Si and I actually stopped work to look at the window and watch and see if the bins were going to blow over.
I went out and anchored ours with some bricks.
And then after dinner it settled.
Si and I took our usual constitutional up to the allotment.
Things are looking fine, despite the wind.
I wanted to tell Tooli all about the sex life of the Sweet Corn.. but guess what, she didn't need to know - she had been reading about the research done to calculate the optimum harvest ratios - and the paper talked about how sweet corn fertilises ..... Apparently my corner sweetcorn is not going to do as well as the corn on the inside.... I should have planted it circular!
Also - She got the Scholarship.
