An Hour & A Half

a brief break in the wind

An hour and a half is round about my limit for hard manual work.

That's the time I spent on it today in the garden and I removed a lot of sods.

I need another hour to finish the job.

But, as my capacity was reached I scurried indoors to catch the Chelsea coverage instead.

Is there a relationship between the manual work and the commencement of Chelsea I wonder. ? Lovely colourful photo.

That is good going out in that gale, more power to your elbow!

Maybe we need to do the hard graft to earn watching Chelsea, Pat :D

Im afraid I misread your title with 'of 'instead of 'in' but then as I read on I realised you would never be so uncouth! That purple infiltrator sets off the Hostas to perfection!

Oh dear, Peter. Have we found the level? :D

So much easier to watch Chelsea tonight for an hour and a half:) Really enjoyed it tonight but just one little thing they could improve- the names of the plants come up on the screne as you see the plant! Now that would be just perfect!

And when they do put the names up, they could be up for a bit longer. I'm sat there with pen and paper and I can't jot it down quick enough...
