I'm in now, lots done out there still lots to do but we're getting there. When I was up at the GC I picked up three Nicotiana Sylvestris and I've popped them in the new Sunny Bed, they'll give it some height
As well as doing lots of gardening, there was also lots of sitting and looking and smelling the roses - OH has discovered that despite him 'not liking scented flowers 'cos they smell of talcum powder and air freshener' he likes the smell of our David Austin Rose 'Mayflower' - he says it smells of Turkish Delight maybe that's because it's made with rose-water?
We also spent quite a while laying on our tums and watching the frogs and snails in the pond - the snails are doing a brilliant job of keeping the pondwater clear - no sign of any blanket-weed - well, not yet anyway, and there was plenty by this time last year.
Shoulder of lamb has been roasted and is resting, local new potatoes are cooking and we'll also be having roasted new carrots (roasted around the lamb) and buttered spring cabbage with mint sauce from the garden and gravy.
You've got fifteen minutes to get here ................
