I had my eldest sister and her husband staying for the week end,
I haven't seen them in almost 2 years.
We had a lovely time,
They came with me on Friday to walk Sol
and there reward was seeing this
An Adder basking in the sun
What a beautiful creature
This one in the photo is a male, there is actually two snakes here
There was brown female curled up in the leaves.
Saturday we took our visitors to New Quay and while eating fish and chips we watched the dolphins out in the bay.
A few jobs got done over the week end,
My sister helped me get the guttering full of young peas planted out.
I also got the young sprouts and broccoli
planted out. Spring onions have been planted and more seeds have been sown, I am trying to get in the habit of doing succession sowing, that way everything is not ready at once.
The frame is all up for the second poly tunnel, if the weather is good we might get it covered next week end.
Then it will be all systems go.
Our visitors went home today, we have a few weeks then more visitors arrive.
I mentioned last week something I had in the back of my car
well here it is
A Dovecot, a friend was selling it.
I thought it would make a lovely addition to the garden.
Next month we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary
there is isnt anything I really want, I have now asked for half a dozen white fantail doves.
I hope you have all had a lovely holiday week end.
