After weeks of hard graft in the garden, what a joy (and a therapy) to pick (and pod) peas and beans for dinner!
In contrast, I only have to glance at the elderflower bushes for them to shake their huge blossoms in my face and shout‘cordial’…. hence the permanently sticky ‘no go’ area in the kitchen.
The House Martins have been hard at work too and have successfully reared a chirruping family in the garage next to my studio. When I looked in this morning they were all lined up, swinging from the wire that is my internet connection.... hmmm that could scupper a deadline or two if I don’t take action!
