At last the sun has come out and along with it our bed of hollyhocks along the front of the cottage. They are in various shades of pink and looked stunning last Saturday against the blue of an unusually blue sea in the distance.
For once the deer haven't ravaged the rambling rose over the porch either and for the first time, it looks how I have dreamed it would, falling over the porch with a profusion of white, scented blooms. Wish we were staying there ourselves in this glorious weather.

We were able to stay overnight at the cottage ourselves on Friday and to take advantage of the mini bus down to The Ship at the Weir to enjoy some (well one or two) of the many fine beers and ciders on offer and the live music at The Weirfest.
On Saturday we spent a few hours working in the garden. After what seems like days of rain, the sun came out and the sky was an intense blue. The sea was almost navy with white horses rolling in offset by the deep green of the trees on Hurlestone Point. The deep pink hollyhocks all around the front of the cottage are just about to come out. We would have liked to have stayed on ourselves.
We are planning our next improvement. A seating area up the garden in which to enjoy an early morning coffee or an early evening G&T whilst looking at the view.
