10/05/2017 We have been working all day in the garden. A very few late photos taken in the drizzle.

Maximum temperature 20C, minimum 4C.  18 km/h S wind 30 km/h gusts.   Rain on and off.
Mrs Blackbird (Turdus merula)...

As above...

and Mr singing merrily on the telephone line.

Iris.

Sage.

Finally cleared of grass and dug over (lots of stone!)  A few bags of manure and we can start planting.

Three large bags of broad beans!

    1. Pickling is too slow for me, just freezing is the easiest and they do freeze very well. Diane
