Today things were calm, accepting and productive. The sun shone (always good for an extra 50 points), a box of eagerly awaited plug plants arrived in good condition (more to follow so only scores 10), I met a bull mastiff called Gus (from a cautious distance on both our parts, plus 30), bracken was removed from tender plants (a garden milestone so 40 for this), we had a laugh and a singsong (definitely another 50, is was opera after all) and my cheese and salami on toast for lunch was almost perfect (only a 20 for this as I burnt the toast). This photo however was the defining moment of the day. On my way to the compost bins with my final load of the day, I suddenly caught a glimpse of where I had been working (surely this view can score no less than 100). So with a quick tally up, and carefully checking the logarithm charts, this adds up to a pretty good day.
