1 Singing with The Suitcases this morning was the tonic I needed. It was so good to sing in beautiful harmony with good friends.
2 All that rain has made the garden lush! The beans we planted to go up the old pan-stand I showed you ( http://wp.me/p1Ypl6-H8 ) have almost reached the top. The broad beans are almost ready for picking and the nasturtiums are gorgeous (and good in salad!)
The teapots at the top are from Senegal. Ami got them for us when were were there for the wedding in April. The old chimney pot is one from Mum and Dad’s garden. The new arbour is an early Sapphire Wedding Anniversary present to ourselves!
3 I find this colour combination of Crocosmia Lucifer and Verbena Bonariensis very beautiful.
