Taking it easy in the sun... while the rest of us toiled (and drank tea)

We think the ducks liked sitting on the hot rock - and then they spent the afternoon splashing around and swimming.

We had two very productive afternoons in the hot February sun (we don’t type that often).

Purple for Polio crocuses fully out in the sun - around the green area - thanks to local Rotary clubs and cubs for the planting. You can see we planted them in slits in the turf.

The start of a new climbing French bean wigwam. We hope they won’t all be at the top of this VERY TALL structure. Thanks to the willow weavers and hazel crafters.

The start of some new sweet pea wigwams - thanks to the diggers and constructors. They should have better soil and will be nearer the water supply compared with our previous bed. They will remind us of all the people who love, and loved, growing sweet peas - especially two special grandfathers… The tree stakes were re-purposed from a local public art project - thanks Paul! We hope they will give a waft of fragrance near the garden gate and our scented garden and that people will cut them often to take home with them.
