Jeremy left yesterday and so today is the first day for a month that I have not had people staying. This means I can return to the garden. Visitors are not entranced by afternoons spent grubbing around in the garden and rubbing red Okinawan clay into their scalps. I however love to do this.
It is Summer now and very hot.
At last I am having some success in the garden. I planted goya, the well known Spanish artist, and he has flourished.
I am so pleased that I have actually succeeded in growing something in Japan that I rush to the plant place and buy more goya plants. The people are delighted that a gaijin wants to plant goya and give me lots of advice, which of course is totally lost on me.
It is very hot and I get sun burnt despite my new hat.
I go home to eat.
