Tuesday was another overcast and cool day with just a little light rain in the evening.
My plan was to combine a little steam train spotting with a trip to the garden centre for some new fruit cage netting to protect our red currants which are just starting to turn. The Yorkshireman was to be steam hauled by 70013 Oliver Cromwell from London Victoria to York but unfortunately the engine failed and as you can see below the train was in fact diesel hauled. Part one of my plan a total failure.
At the garden centre the fruit cage netting was much easier to find. All we need now is a little fine weather to get the redcurrants covered before the blackbirds help themselves to the ripening berries.
