Next door to the vegetable garden this wilderness presides. Three years ago it was a fairly well ordered collection of flowerbeds, vegetable beds and shrubs. Now it is a paradise for foxes. In the Autumn I fear earth-movers will move in.
It is supposed to be a day of uninterrupted sunshine. Instead around mid day clouds build up and huge drops of rain seem to condense in the air and fall at irregular intervals. We sit and enjoy the scattered drops.
Feeling starved of easily accessible jazz - it is easy to be spoilt nowadays by on-line music, I subscribe for less than £4.00 to an iTunes album called The Number Jazz Album Ever. It gives me 945 minutes of the great names in the genre. So at this very moment I am listening to Charles Mingus' Better git it in Your Soul.
