I haven't posted for over a week now as I have been so busy at the allotment as well as working in my garden. I also spent 3 days away at my son's having fun with the grandchildren. Bertie is 19 months now and very entertaining and keeps us busy. Florence is just over 3 months and smiling and cooing and developing her own little personality.
I expect everyone is busy planting, weeding and in this heat watering. I spent some time this evening at the allotment everything is coming on so well, and I spotted some ripe strawberries (didn't have time to pick them) some little broad beans and some peas. I have been picking the spinach beet and that's delicious. All the Dahlias are in and they are flowering, as are the sweet-peas and various other flowers. I will take some photo's tomorrow.
Today we visited 'Mottisfont Abbey' which isn't far from where we live. I thought I would share some photo's with you. It was far too hot for me today, and the Rose Gardens there looked very dry, but the perfume was heady and beautiful.
