The answer's in the title of this here posting. Yep, I've gone gardening and with the weather we've been having in Britain, that's cause for some kinda' celebration.
Just before the beginning of April, it was announced that we were in a "drought". And through the month of April, we had the wettest April ever recorded. It has only been over the last couple of days that I actually managed to get to my garden without the aid of a canoe.
And thus, one man and his shovel have set to work while the opportunity is there.
I have been waiting for the right time to put up the above award. The "Sunshine Award" was bestowed upon me by Tina who was one of the hosts of that gosh darn fun "A to Z Challenge" that brought further awareness of the alphabet and got folks more followers who mostly embraced the ethos of a sharing, caring blogging community. Despite my good natured ribbing of the challenge, Tina was so in awe of my writing that she has become one of my starstruck fans. Or something like that. If you have never checked out Tina's blog, here's the link that will take you there: Life is Good.
I'm supposed to give you a whole bunch of 'fascinating' facts about me upon receiving the award and then pass on the award to a few bloggers. However, I don't want to bore you with more stuff about me and I reckon that if you need a bit of sunshine in your life, literally or metaphorically, please grab this award and give us a smile. Thanks for this award, Tina. I'm most grateful.
And on this late May evening, I went for a stroll in my garden. It was mild evening at the end of a perfect, sunny day. Even the 'wee folks' seemed relieved that the weather had finally improved. I looked at Geoffrey the garden gnome and noted his hat was glowing for the first time this year.
