"We returned home last night. At this time of year how a week or ten days changes the growth in one's garden! I must confess that sometimes, coming home after dark, I have taken a hand-candle to inspect some special favourite."
Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden, C.W. Earle 1887
We too returned home, very late, last night from Mallorca. Having resisted the temptation to inspect the garden by moonlight, this morning I was rewarded with finding the larder fully stocked... and bathed in sunshine.
What I couldn't resist though, was picking up a chorizo from the deli on the school run!
