Jai decides to tidy up the front of the house and have a streetside bonfire. I end up making a few trips out to the farm to get some sacks of soil to make up a border on the other side of the front gate to plant some more marigolds. Lots of the flowers we brought back with us germinated and produced small shoots but it is only the marigolds that have grown on. The ones we have across the front wall provide a lovely splash of clour and attract many a glance and comment from passers by. Fortunately no-one has decided to help themselves to any yet and Jai's mum has not picked again for the temple run. Riding the bike in the morning fresh air at least clears my headache a bit.
After finishing at the farm yesterday Wai drove them all to Silatburi - a town on the way to Roi Et near the flooded bridge I photographed earlier - and bought a lot of big fish of which Jai was given two. Fried with noodles, salad and a dipping sauce it was very nice lunchtime and there was enough left for us to eat in the evening as well.
Jai completed the back garden by pricking out some more cabbage plants. There are literally hundreds of cabbage in place now and there is no way we will eat half of them but Jai says that she will sell them. Time will tell ...
In the afternoon I repotted several of our orchids that had outgrown their orignal pots. Found an old planter from 4 years ago that had once held a flower arrangement that niece Michelle had given Jai when she stayed with us in Chiangmai. Does the job well.
