May 2019 in Photos


 

I’m close to a year behind with these posts – eek! But I also know that,┬ácourtesy of feeling distinctly below-par for a lot of last year, there won’t be huge numbers of photos to post. But let’s get stuck in anyway! I have a suspicion the order the photos appear in this blog is from oldest to newest – such is the way…

Potted on parsley - most of this got noshed by the deer, but we did get some enjoyment from them. They're on the wall just outside the back door

I'd forgotten why I'd taken this photo...until I spotted the amazing perfectly-dry spots under the wooden supports. Weather is awesome!

The lawnmower gets serious use and this year we needed a replacement cable - ordered it OK but fitting it was a bit of a nightmare. Got there in the end tho'!

Trusty mower: the motor cage has now fallen off completely (courtesy of the bolts holding it in shaking out) but the machine still goes like the (very slow) clappers

Ah, the feet photos. These trainers have been around for a good while now and are one of my favourite mowing footwear options

I acquired a sofa. It didn't fit in the car. Volume wasn't the issue: getting it *INTO* the vehicle was. So I bought some roof bars. And tied it on myself. And it didn't fall off. Winner!
