Purple carpet;

Today it looks fine, the sky a freshly washed blue.The coarse, dry lawn has become a purple carpet. The pretty bells look silvery in the early sunlight.

The day has only just started and I am still free as a bird.
Later I have to drive into town to go to the pharmacy to prolong the hired crutches. P. is not very happy with them I have to ask for something better, more sophisticated! I think there is nothing else available and he has to get used to the ones he has got. It will be at least another 5 weeks...long weeks for a very active man! Patience is not a word he knows well!! He has to be a fast learner!

A little rain and the Daylilies start to show their amazing patterns and colours. The earlier ones were very beautifully plain! Now they have become show pieces with frills and curls on their petals.
Fine lines of gold along the rim of the petals, they are getting very diva like.

I am glad I do not have to water the gardens today.

  1. Sorry to hear about Peter. But broken bones do eventually heal. I can just imagine the crutches he doesn't like. Made of timber from the First World War, right? Instead of neat aluminium ones with arm support? I had to use crutches a few years back and refused these horrible things the pharmacy was trying to give me. Fortunately about a km away, there is a medical hire place who hire out the aluminium ones. Not very expensive either. Good luck to Peter. Cheers, Bill
