I wish we lived back in the days when women were women and men wore hats. I love to see a man in a hat.
And by sheer coincidence (because 'hat' is the word today over on HSMSHS), I bought Tim a hat today! A dapper straw number, that he can wear when he's cutting the grass, or just relaxing in the garden.
This shot was taken in the house though!
This is what's happening in my garden today.
The loosestrife is just on the point of opening ...
... the first honeysuckle bud has opened ...
... and this beautifully coloured fly with irridescent body and wings took a rest on the spirea.
Life is so precious and could be snatched from you in the blink of an eye.
Tim was involved in a car accident yesterday on his way home from Uni. He was driving along a dual carriageway, when another car (a Lexus 4x4) drove straight out of a side road, right in front of him. He had no time to stop and the inevitable collision occurred. Thankfully, neither Tim nor the other chap was hurt, but both cars are extensively damaged.
The other driver has admitted full liability and we received a phonecall from his insurers confirming this. Tim's car is undrivable, so a recovery truck is fetching it today sometime and he'll get a hire car for the duration.
As I say, cars can be replaced, but life is oh, so precious and I'm just SO thankful that Tim is safe and sound.
