Working in the Garden 22 April 2019

It's finally got warm enough to work outside without having to be bold and manly about it.

Though since I tend to be sitting around rather than being active, I was wearing a light sweater for a couple of days. But with a laptop, and an ethernet cable run out from the machine room (because really why would one want to rely on 802.11 when there's gigabit ethernet available?), I have a fine and well-ventilated office.

And this year we have cowslips. Not many of them, and almost certainly not from the cowslip seeds we planted when we turned the lawn into a meadow, but we certainly have the things.

And unofficial bluebells nearby.

And what I can only assume is an oddly mobile fungus, which seems to like following me around. (It can't be a dog; dogs are not allowed in the garden.)
