My friends and neighbours Andrea and buddy who lived just across the road have emigrated today Germany and have very kindly given me a number of pots, both empty and planted with lavender, rosemary and strawberries. Also an archway for the front gate complete with honeysuckle, a sundial (I've always wanted a sundial )and a waterfeature as well as a load of herbs. 
The waterfeature has been working for a few weeks, but today I planted some heathers around it as it's on a rather draughty corner. 

The sundial is next to my sitting place as it's the sunniest place in the garden, and yes we have had enough sun for me to set it. 

Thank you Andrea, I'll think of you every time I sit out here.

No breakfast in the garden this morning, damp and dismal outside, so here's a glimpse out of the window into the front garden. 

into the back garden.
