It’s been a strange Spring . May was wet, cold and stormy which wrecked early growth – even the trees have had to sport new leaves. The broad beans were destroyed but the warmth in June has seen a huge catch up especially brought with heavy showers last week. Now the days are really hot and sunny and how the borders have grown. The red of the poppies is stunning.
We bought a new swing seat at bargain price and it’s perfect for a bit of afternoon shade . It compliments the arrival of the greenhouse which is a slate grey. I am just beginning to use it properly this weekend ,now that the automatic windows are operational and shading is attached. I feel very lucky – but this is a garden that deserves it- and the rewards are great.
