Sunny times at Red Lion Lane

*Sighs* The grass was getting pretty long, weeds were everywhere and it rained and it rained for most of the last month.  I also had a tough trip with work on the horizon and so shut myself away for a bit.  Thankfully I went away for the work trip last week and came back to beautiful weather "Hello Summer!!".

This weekend we've thrown ourselves into the British summer.  We took two trips to the garden centre, sorting ourselves out with tools and a hosepipe and set about weeding.  It's a long garden so rather than get all overwhelmed we made it a challenge to tidy up the decking so we could sit and eat barbecued food in some sort of comfort.  And we didn't just have one barbecue oh no we had too, you never know when you're going to get this sunny period again!

Lovely Dahlias and a plant reminding me of childhood Fuschia

It may not look a lot but in this heat I'm pretty proud of persevering!

Day one
Day two

A bit worn out after the long weekend
