Already everything is beginning to look straggly. I spent this morning trimming back the honeysuckle, ivy and shrubs that threatened to block the paths. The bluebells look decidedly grey now and the white lilac blossom is turning brown. Fortunately I remembered to take my camera out with me on several occasions so here is a brief summary of the garden in May:
The first of the poppies to open
with lots more buds waiting.
Helping the blackbirds out with meal worms
Completed cardigan for granddaughter Charlotte
and one for Millie.
Columbine invading the herb garden - not an unwelcome intruder
And what could be better than afternoon tea in the garden with scones made from one of Nan's recipes?
It is a long time since I mentioned the books I have been reading. I'll save those for another day.
