The weather has taken a turn for the worse, just in time for our new strawberry plants to arrive. We've already planted ten "Pegasus" in the new strawberry bed. Ten "Florence" arrived day before yesterday.
Never daunted, Dan planted them out yesterday - in the gales and the rain. Tess huddled behind the fence and Meg threw her ball to him, as thay all got soaked.
When we're eating the strawberries, with some cream, on a warm summer's day, it will all seem like a distant memory. Meanwhile, Dan, keep taking the "Lemsip"!
