called a Pomlazka, and visit the homes of female relatives and friends to whip bottoms (or legs), and also partake in a drink or two (It'd be rude not to). Pity the poor ladies towards the end of the morning! It's not likely they'll call on us but just in case we went out for a walk with the dogs!
Well the rain has driven me in from the garden, not having achieved anything like I wanted to. All I seem to have done is stained bloody fence palings, but the fence is half finished and looking good. The rotovating of the veggie patch was abandoned because the ground is so dry it's like cement. It should rain tomorrow so that will soften it up a bit. We did replace some of the plants that didn't survive winter. A new cherry tree, a new rosemary bush, a new lemon thyme and a exochorda racemosa (never heard of it) to replace another shrub that I don't know what it was called, but it's not called anything now coz it's dead! We also planted a betula pendula ( weeping birch) on the front lawn next to the fence.

Thunder now rumbling around the town, so I'm moving my paint station to the garage to continue for another hour or so. Hope you had a good easter
