So much rain in March and early April . . . should have been weeding, mulching and thinning out plants, instead I painted summer house, and a fence, before the roses took over. B. painted a newly acquired milk churn., potted up with lavender and a few trailing geraniums. The lilacs smelt heavenly, tucked behind the magic apple tree - our neighbour has the best view. Alliums have smaller heads this year, I know this because I kept the seed heads from last year, but maybe more will appear later. Sweet little violas and bellis daisies repeating for months. Roses are in bud, plant and bush spurts of growth,
Definitely early summer now, May going out with a heatwave, warm balmy evenings. Peaceful by the sea as the holiday season isn't yet in full swing. A stroll along the prom; then just sitting on the beach steps, listening to the gentle lap of the waves watching the sun go down. Blissful.
Walking on the beach is new every time. I like to see where the wind has blown the sand, notice what tide's left behind, see who's out walking, and look out at the horizon. Just hear and see the sea. and today I have my camera with me so that you can see it too.
