Did the long commute south today. Exchanged just one word with another passenger the whole way!

Managed to plant out some foxglove seedlings in the morning (probably too soon but just a single day of full sun can dry the seed tray and all the seedlings out) and cut the most overgrown part of ma’s back lawn in the evening (the hover mower I bought her years ago has metal blades, which were needed); on between I saw about half the wheat fields I passed had been harvested, and saw light sign of weather flattening in the uncut reaped fields, which is a hopeful sign for a good harvest, and that would be a blessing to set against present woes.
