Beautiful day - Beautiful daughter mowed the lawns

Hard at work serious daughter
Another real summers day, sun more sun and a sprinkling of rain. Caroline cut all the lawns which is quite an area and Allie continued with the hand weeding the end of the kitchen garden which is not yet finished as there was quite a breeze with the sun so impossible to do any spraying. Picked the apples and am now going to see whether I can poach and preserve them, only a few cookers which will turn into crumble. Nearly finished the planting only the echinacea and the potentilla to be planted yet - I plan to repot the peony until I find a final spot for it. While planting up mother duck was having a good old wash in the pond but no photos today of her. Photos of the butterflies and bees in wildlife album- so many bees unbelievable just hopping from one flower to the next.
This evening looking across the pond to the garden and house the picture is really coming together, there was a spectacular sunset behind the hill but no camera as I was out with riders cross country. Good finish to another summer day.
Think my beautiful 2nd daughter caught sight of me with the camera hence the look.
