On balance it was a very good day at Lionel and Lucinda’s. A day of many parts. It was Flying Ant Day; a curious and slightly sinister version of Formicidae relocation. It was a Day of Welcome Gifts, of cut and come again and rocket, of home-made mackerel pate and elderflower cordial. On the downside it was a Dig up a Truck Load of Crocosmia in the Vain Hope you will get Rid of Them Day and a Swelter in the Unexpected Summer Weather Day. Far outweighing the hard slog was the Fall in Love all Over Again with Cosmos from Cerise through Pictoee to Virgin White Day. All in all there are no complaints.
