Anyway, with vague paraphrasing of Blackadder's dogsbody out of the way, we can get back to our time in the yard, which was lovely. We haven't been spending much time outdoors since the mosquitoes came out in droves, but they're settling down to a dull roar now, and the glorious breeze kept them from being too much of a nuisance. It was sunny in the afternoon, but not too hot (again, thanks to the breeze).

It was nice to sit back, knit, enjoy the kids playing and all the colour in the yard. The bees drifted around the yard, paying visits to the lavender and other flowers that were in bloom.
The hops continues it's quest to conquer the garage (or possibly planet), and has a tendril snaking into the kids' playhouse.Ah yes, and the gnome has found her home among the lingonberry (this spot had a few more votes off the blog as well).
Now, off to freeze another bunch of raspberries. (They're delicious, by the way).
