Summer Olympics

Posted on August 1, 2016

Happy Summertime everyone! Now I know us Brits do love to talk about the weather but how can I not with the glorious hot, sunny days we have had recently. I hope there wasn’t too many sunburnt noses but hope you all managed to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. I believe the sunshine even made it up to Northern Scotland so we all just about got that all important vitamin D dosage. All this sunshine does mean my owner has been kept busy watering the garden, it is looking fabulous now the plants are in flower showcasing an abundance of shape and colour. I’m sure some of you have been working hard in your gardens too and I’m sure they are all looking spectacular, do feel free to send me some pictures, I always love seeing new gardens!

Speaking of new gardens, I have just finished my tour of some of the shows all around the country, I’m sure I saw some of you there. From the Country Living fair to RHS Chelsea, RHS Hampton Court and RHS Tatton Park.  I have certainly been kept busy but I loved it and I saw some beautiful gardens. I was even lucky enough to be part of many of the gardens at RHS Hampton Court which was an absolute pleasure and thank you to all who came and said hello.

Some other people who I have no doubt have also been very busy are all those athletes in training for the upcoming Olympics. I usually look after Mr and Mrs Gerrad’s lawn mower and gardening tools. They’re my owners and I am very proud to be able to keep their lawn mower safe and secure but I also have a hosting role for the upcoming Olympics. I’ve had some union jack bunting hung all around my walls and I’ve even been wired up so Mr Gerrad can plug in his flat screen and mini fridge to settle in and watch the games. I think they call it a ‘man cave’ these days but either way I’m looking forward to having a front row seat. After a victorious result at Wimbledon I’m particularly excited to see Andy Murray in action again. Good luck to all the athletes competing but a special good luck to Team GB.

I hope you all enjoy your summer and let’s hope the rain stays off to allow everyone some more time in their gardens.

Until next time
