I can’t show you a photo for my first beautiful thing tonight. I just want to share the sounds as we sat in the sunshine having a cup of tea this afternoon. The dominant sound was the baaing of the sheep in the field behind (see a couple of days ago for a photo of the lambs) closely followed by the gentle buzzing of insects seeking out the pollen and interrupted occasionally by the crying of seagulls. What a joy. We are so lucky to live where we do.
The lovely Mr S has planted lots of Cosmos this evening as I was out singing. We have long loved Cosmos, especially the white ones, and were delighted to find them growing so profusely alongside the roads in South Africa. Now, I will love them even more, even the pink ones!
We have moved the finished pots of tulips and daffodils to a space at the back for their leaves to die down and will plant up other pots to replace them on the steps. I cut the last few Narcissi to enjoy them indoors.
