The last family people left this morning and as you can imagine the house is eerily silent. All three can be seen waving here if you look carefully.
2 Our garden has become a jungle in the ten days the family have been here and we have been having too much fun to be tending to it. The Jasmine has its first few flowers and my goodness, they pack a powerful punch of perfume as you walk under the arch.
3 Sitting in the arbour in the sunshine this afternoon I could see that many beans are suddenly ready for harvesting so for supper tonight we are having Green Beans with Shallots (our own), Garlic (our own) and toasted almond slivers to go with a bit of leftover roasted chicken – simple and delicious.
