Busy bees

Two days of happy relaxation with Lorraine. Feeling properly relaxed at home. Interspersed with lots of gardening, and cleaning up the side of the house by the kitchen, which gave us an immense sense of achievement and progress. We drove off to the tip twice, an arachnid exodus in the car as we went. Something about dropping off bags of garden rubbish plus other bits is immensely lightening. At one point Lorraine slipped over on slimy concrete and landed heavily on her knee. Luckily she was absolutely fine.

Below, at one point we came across mating bumblebees in the front garden. I was expecting the male to fall the the floor dead and spent after they had mated, but he zoomed off happily after smoking a cigarette.
