18/05/2016 Busy in the garden.
Maximum temperature 18C, minimum 6C. 32 km/h SW winds. 5mm rain measured this morning.
The promise of more flowers soon.
Bee on the Choisya ternata, note the pollen basket on is leg.
Bumble bee with a good pollen collection.
I think this may a dog rose. It was in the cotoneaster shrub when we bought here 11 years ago. It is a very vigorous plant and gets cut back to ground level each year.
Carrots and parsnips growing well.
Pumpkin and squash planted today. Rhubarb behind and broad beans on the right.
