Thank you for my good luck and support last night, it went really well and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Now today, believe it or not, I start rehearsals for another opera entirely! Altogether for the two operas there will be 35 performances.
So I have until a fortnight from Saturday and then I go home and do all my travelling and performances from my home base as all rehearsals will be finished. Performances drag on until October, but I will be home lots so I am happy that it is nearly time.
I wonder what I have been missing in the garden? There has been some sun and lots of rain so I imagine first of all I will have grass like a meadow. It was a carpet of dandelions before its last cut a week and a bit ago and imagine they have all come back with a vengeance. Its a shame really, because I think the dandelions are actually rather pretty.
My seedlings were hit and miss when I was last there. Some of the tomatoes are doing quite well, others are still a bit behind. Most of the cucumbers seemed to be dead, but let's see if they survive.
The chillis and peppers are growing but, oh so slowly.
I am growing marigolds to put in with the tomatoes and they are doing ok.
I've never grown leeks before and I think I went overboard, It looks like grass!
My mum is looking after a tray of my tomatoes and they are doing much better - the human contact element, I am sure.
Next time I will show you what has been going on in the garden and soon there will be a puppies update.
