When the rain stopped, Lorraine and I cleared the back garden of bits of junk, and carried slabs and wooden pallets to the front, and generally tidied up the plants and cut the hedge and so on. We also picked our plums, of which there were many more than last year. From these we made plum jam, and had a good haul from it as you can see from Lorraine and the jars below. There are more on the tree to be had too.

Otherwise, a very happy day at home. Spoke to Mum too, and Lorraine chatted with Pat and Maureen.

Below Lorraine and plum jam, and a bright almost neon green cricket that found its way onto me from the ivy.
