I spent Sunday afternoon helping my neighbour clear her garden of overgrown climbers (one had grown to the top of the tree next door). So Monday morning started with a trip to the recycling centre with all the garden waste.
As I was out and about, I decided to go into town and check out the new Leicester Central development. This is a mixed retail/office/housing/leisure development built around the original Leicester Central Railway Station.
Part of the development is a Novotel with a swanky restaurant. I stopped by there for afternoon tea :). After walking all round the shopping area, I needed it!
Saturday: 8098 steps
A beautiful day, fine drying weather for a line of laundry, hung out early when it was still chill but the sun was already rising and streaming down on the world below.
A morning writing, this week's Saturday Savers Club post, and other bits and pieces. Then a walk to the Queen's Road Pharmacy before calling in the Co-op for essentials - milk, bread, a paper.
On the way home, I passed this beautiful Magnolia, growing in a front garden. I also spotted this clever idea:
A drainpipe, extended from the down pipe to flow directly on to the garden.
I'm thinking about a Magnolia and Wisteria for the back fence. Or maybe a passion flower looping in great garlands from fence post to fence post. Make a change from ivy, anyway.
