Tariq’s birthday today and the best birthday present…he took home a springer spaniel puppy called Benny!
We took both the dogs to Kearsney Abbey. Django loved it even though he is not allowed off the lead. It’s a little dog heaven with so many of them over there. We weren’t too keen on the male swan who came and plonked himself in front of us when we had coffee, as he can be very aggressive.
It rained most of the afternoon.
Thought for the Day – “There’s a freedom in the outdoors that can’t be contained—an untamed spirit that sets us free and lets our hearts roam wild.”
I went into Deal first thing and then watched some football when back home. In the afternoon Django arrived. We are looking after him until Monday. He is another one who loves sitting in front of the fan. And he is such a little sweetie.
We were out in the garden all afternoon. I think Django loved Ellie’s antlers to chew on.

Time to sort the garden out as I moved a lot of pots out of direct sun while we were away. Some plants are thirsty but most seem to have survived. July is not a good time to go away! I have so many tomatoes and we ate a couple which were red enough. So tasty! I never buys seeds, always get them out of Piccolo tomatoes which is why we have so many! It’s not only the pots in the garden but Mal planted a lot at the allotments that I had started off.
I think the nasturtiums are a little like Triffids!
BUT the butterflies and bees love them.
