Today I saw a little worm
wriggling on his belly.
Perhaps he'd like to come inside
and see what's on the telly.

I have been gardening today. Blood & Boned the whole front garden and then covered it with a layer of mulch. It rained all last night so it was perfect timing. Plus, I finally finished planting all the seedlings. Tomorrow I tackle the back garden. I feel good, smug even. But my back aches.
To celebrate the new look garden, tonight I made the first of two new covers for our last remaining directors chairs. Pale blue fabric with trees, flowers and hot pink butterflies. The butterflies should complement the hot pink wooden outdoor table, and the hot pink roof of our little blue shed.
It's midnight now so I'll photograph tomorrow.
Did you know that despite his quintessential English daffiness, Spike Milligan was Australian? From the town of Woy Woy. Which seems fitting, somehow.
Edited: No he wasn't. His parents and brother lived there and he just visited a lot. Apparently.
