Something in the Sky but Not the Sun

Wednesday was a repeat of Tuesday it was cold and dull. Thursday was much better once the sun broke through the early morning cloud. After a couple of cold days Thursday became our warmest day of the month with the temperature reaching 21.6° C or 70.9°F.
On Wednesday afternoon I visited a friend to share out some of the plums harvested on Tuesday. It's not very often one of these lands just outside your garden.

Without doubt it's probably the quickest way in and out of Leeds during the rush hour. It's very good at clearing away fallen leaves from the lawn when it takes off too.

Thursday was a do it yourself day. The garage roof was in need of some repair. Once that was done I still had time to water our plants growing in tubs and harvest a couple of John Baer tomatoes and an aubergine from the greenhouse for dinner. The variety of aubergine is Jackpot and I didn't think it was supposed to grow fruits as large as this.
Tomato John Baer has produced a good crop at home and on the plot so it's one I think I will try again next year.

  1. There something exciting about watching helicopters taking off! Nice sharp video.

    1. I didn't get the take off very well so I'll have to take some more plums and hope another helicopter comes in to land.
