the sunlight on the garden

Today there was a power cut from just before 9 am until almost 5 pm.  Two men from E-on came with a series of increasingly bigger diggers and dug an enormous hole in the pavement in front of my house.  They successfully fixed the fault.  I gave them each a cup of tea, using gas to heat the water. 

In between that I planted 25 runner beans and spent 45 minutes admiring the sunlight on the garden.

I didn’t quite manage to do nothing, but having no electricity all day was a definite help.
