Yesterday - a leisurely morning followed by a reasonable carvery at a local hostelry with a friend. On the way home I decided to pop in to the town to get a replacement electric car aerial for the greenhouse. I didn't know about the road works at the major junction in town so that was a seven minute wait to move a hundred yards. At the car parts shop my luck was in. They had one aerial left.
On the way back home I called in the garden centre to see whether they had a large Niger seed feeder and against expectations they did so I bought one and stocked up with bird food. There - two items off the Round Tuit list in the space of an hour - whatever next?
By the time I got back home it was time for Bobby to take me for my afternoon constitutional so we nipped down the lane to the cricket field. There were quite a few Southern Hawker Dragonflies flitting around the hedges. Every now and then one would rest. The only camera I had with me was the one in my mobile phone so I tried for a couple of shots. The phone has a wide angle lens so to get a reasonable picture of something like a dragon it needs to be very close. One dragon was obliging and let me get the camera within a few inches.
After a quick cuppa I set about modifying, testing and fitting the car aerial to the greenhouse door.
Top to bottom - door closed, on its way opening, fully open, some uPVC to keep the worst of the rain away from the cables.
While I was in the garden centre I spotted a small ceramic bowl that looked just the job for putting hedgehog food in. I wondered how long it would take for a hog to use it. Not long at all!
When I think of it - that makes three Round Tuits in one day as I have been meaning to buy a bowl for the hedgehogs for ages. No wonder I slept like a baby last night - exhausted!!
