I really love this time of year – I think May is possibly my most favourite time of all. Whilst I enjoy the mellow colours and soft mists of autumn, hot chocolate and toasty toes at Christmas, and picnics on the beach in August, May is such a vibrant, colourful, ALIVE sort of month after the long dark winter months we’ve endured. The days are significantly longer now, and earlier this week I ate my first meal in my summerhouse this year – supervised of course by my two furry friends…..
Yes, that’s Daisy doing her best to look pitiful and starving – she seems to be so weak from hunger that she can’t even hold her head up, but has to rest her chin on the table!

The spring bulbs are over, and the garden bluebells are beginning to fade, though they’re at their peak in the woods and hedgerows around the village ….

And please send all your positive thoughts to my rose archway. It’s all in place now, but looking rather small ….
GROW ROSES, GROW!!
