Thank you ma’am

Thanks to her majesty, enjoying an extra day off work and relaxing in the garden.  I spent all day working out there yesterday, pushing, pulling, sowing, digging, forking (steady on) hoeing, pruning and running (dive bombing wasp) so it’s  nice to simply put ones feet up, enjoy the garden at it’s best, wave my little flag and give salute our beloved Queen.

Thank you ma’am 🙂
