Girls’ night for film and popcorn

Jock’s away, and K very kindly fetched me for a girls’ night in at the Mill
It was a beautiful evening and the garden was full of colour and bees, so I took lots of pictures.  Then we settled down in squishy cushioned chairs for a weepy wallow.
Oh dear!  The film had been wiped.  Never mind, the popcorn was not wasted and we had a lovely chatty time with old property programmes on TV.

I decline to re-open the topic of the day – too depressing.

The back garden at the Mill was made after Jock terraced and built stone walls and steps and toiled for the better part of a year.  This was the first time I had seen it in full summer glory, and I reckon it was worth the effort.Mill back garden 24.6.16 Jock's handiwork 3 years on.

I also had the chance to photograph the wall hanging I made for K & S’s wedding present:

    “Jock’s garden” turned out really nice, just right for all those flowers.
    Too bad you couldn’t watch the movie. Was it a chick flick?
    The popcorn sounds yummy. I am surprised so many of the ladies could still eat popcorn. My doctor has taken that pleasure away. But he was right, I have less pain without it, seeds, and the like.
    I’m still blogging on both blogs, journal-like stuf on one and my ‘poems’ on the other.

    It was the popcorn, coupled with friends, that made the evening worthwhile.

    Nothing wrong with your photos, Viv. It’s always harder to get a good shot of borders than of individual plants. Jock’s done a great job. 🙂 Cate’s post is up now, by the way.

    That looks like a beautiful place to gather.


  8. Beautiful garden. I would like many hours there. Your Bargello is lovely as well. I have never attempted one but love seeing them. Girls nights are good for us at any age.

    Certainly worth the effort! The gardens look beautiful.
    If I was married to somebody called Jock I would have to make him go off quite a lot just for the pleasure of being able to say ‘Jocks Away!’ – but then I’m easily amused 😉
