Sound up for birdsong
So much to tell you!
On Monday I spent a very hot and sticky 4.5 hours in my car (no air-con) to stay with friends in Kent and was rewarded by arriving in the most idyllic garden full of roses climbing, rambling and tumbling in scented profusion
The shapes within this one looks like a sculpture to me
and lavender and catmint against a sunny wall
scented with honeysuckle and elderflower (usually over by now).
We saw butterflies, moths and damselflies in abundance and then back home to boogie to The Beatles on the patio whilst a delicious supper was cooking: salmon with a dill, cucumber and creme fraiche with spinach and new potatoes
followed by lemon pudding garnished with rose petals
You can tell we are women of a certain age can’t you!!!
And we laughed – a lot!!!
Wonderful relaxing time with good friends who have known each other forever – can’t beat it.
