We need days like today. We need them so that we can have the really great days. It’s all about balance. The first signs of doom were not subtle – lost internet connection mid e-mail and a broken watch. Down hill from then on really. I am loath to go on and on about the deer. How in the week since I was last at work they have ravaged the garden, stomping, munching and pooping on their relentless march of destruction. So we had a day of remedial work, cutting back their left-overs, creating Heath Robinson contraptions, concocting strange brews and hiring at great expense (I think we agreed on a pound of sausages) The Dusk Patrol.
Only good thing in the whole wide (my) world was this Delphinium. Pretty damn good though.
