Tom managed to get his ticket for the final at Wembley, and it turned out to be a day to remember. Rovers winning in style against Shrewbury Town, 3-1. The picture above was taken as 40,000 Gasheads queued up to get in. Tom tells me the Statue of Bobby Moore is huge, it certainly looks quite impressive.
The solar powered bubbler has come …. at last. Shame about the weather!! Still on the few sunny periods we’ve had it has been working quite well. I gave the pond some algae cleaner last night, and it is looking much better, and the fish seem far more active since the bubbler’s been bubblin’.
We’ve almost finished in the garden, the new turf is down, and the paths have been gravelled, giving that nice crunchy sound underfoot. There’s still some planting space, and there will always be the odd mistake, like the phalaris arundinacea which has turned out to be a favourite for all the cats in the area, including Cassie. It should grow fairly tall but at the rate it’s been chomped it won’t get much tall than a cat’s mouth from the ground.
