Are you in a jubilant mood this weekend?
The UK is in the throes of being jubilant, you see a certain Maj is celebrating her reign on the throne. Events are being held all over the UK – pageants, tea parties, church bells rung, lighting beacons, bunting hung. You name it. We also have the luxury of a four-day weekend to help us celebrate.
Except it’s grey and overcast and is raining. And I’m sitting on the proverbial garden fence, you see I consider myself agnostic when it comes to royalty – neither an outright Republican nor a flag waving Royalist.
So I’ll just get on with my life here on the south coast. Besides they didn’t consult me on the dates - the last jubilee was on my birthday; a party in the garden, butterfly cakes with the icing melting it was so hot, party frocks and games. So this time around and not being ten I’ll be on my knees planting a zillion bean plants whilst planning what to do with my extra piece of allotment land. Yes Promenade Plantings is empire building :)
Jubilant gardening my friends!
