Just back from a wonderful day at the cottage and for once had time to spend in the garden. I planted out some cosmos and did some much overdue weeding and pruning. We sat out to have lunch and the sun was positively hot.
Whilst we were working, eight young hinds were lazing around lying along the path in the orchard opposite us, taking life very easy. Already the hollyhocks are up and the honeysuckle is doing very well. The primroses have gone over now but some bluebells are out and the apple blossom is looking wonderful. I have never seen so much lilac blossom there and the smell was just wonderful as I wended my way up the back to the arbour for a few minutes with a cup of tea (too early for a G&T.)
