Tunbridge Wells had its football moment on Saturday. Tunbridge Wells FC was through to the final of the FA Vase, a competition for amateur teams. So Wembley was the destination of a rumoured 11, 000 supporters from the town. Never mind that their opponents Spenneymoor, Co Durham won 2- 1. To my shame I didn't realise that the game was on, having given up on the local paper long ago. As it was we were lucky. We had postponed a planned visit to London for reasons unconnected with football. If we had tried to go through with it, we would apparently have found neither a seat not standing room on the train.
After the rain and cold with which Spring kicked off, the idea of watering the garden and particularly the potted plants which are today in a sprightly mood, seems strangely out of place. But I find to my surprise that the soil and compost is already dry and ready for the watering can.
