The cold start to the year has held everything back. This was the garden in mid May 2020.
This was it on the same day this year.
At the end of April, whenI last posted about the garden, I worried – don’t I always? – about the lack of rain. Ha! We’ve now had May’s average rainfall in the first 15 days. Excellent. The water butts are refilling nicely, the grass is tall and green and the seedlings are bursting with energy.
The only thing we lack is the colour we normally have now but it’s coming and by the end of the month the colour will be here in spades full.
And Dog? Well he’s taking it easy; we’re in for a busy summer…
