Today brought lovely, sunny weather to our part of the country.
As it was my day and my choice what to do: we went to the local garden centre!
The Sussex Engine and Associated Machinery Society were there exhibiting their engines in the sunshine:
Apparently most of these engines were used to power farm machinery and pump water around farms. They run off petrol or diesel, and one small tank of fuel can keep the engine going for up to 2 days. They are pretty economical. But VERY noisy!
We moved on into the garden centre, where we chose our vegetables for this season, and also got hooked on DAHLIAS!
I have never grown these before, but my Mum says it’s pretty easy, so here goes! Will keep you posted.
Thank you to Edie and Bob for my beautiful Spring Planter, which is now adding a spot of much needed colour and freshness to our patio.
And thank you to my two favourite people for my fab birthday gifts and a lovely day.
