Autumn crocus flowering now. After so, so, so much rain anything that survived is doing well. A few late bright zinnias for the bees and butterflies.
Apricot coloured ones are a bit more unusual.
All the walnuts fell at once this year during the heavy rain and wind.
We were without power for 19 hours at the beginning of Easter. I have collected 5 of these green bins full ; that's about 2500 walnuts.
We did our usual successful trip to the Rotary Used Book Fair.
Laid out on sheets on the cobblestones to dry when the sun shines.

This is the best tree they fall from.....lots roll down the slope beneath the tree. A lot land on the grass up behind the tree which stay clean in the grass.
The young ones were with us over Easter. Here Grandson is wearing his new vest I got finished for him.
Here he is defying gravity while building a tower with blocks. He loves the ""Crash, " part naturally.
Yesterday 14 ladies sewed and pressed blocks to make this quilt top which will be our Raffle quilt at our Exhibition in September.
Dorothy D whose back you can see here pre - cut and packaged all the fabric , so that took her hours before hand.
