Summer Ran Dry...

Don't forget to upload your Big Butterfly Count results by the end of August, there is still time to take part, the count runs until the 12th of August. More details on YouTube here ~ Big Butterfly Count

Please take part in this year's RSPB Swift survey ~ details here. They are on the amber list and numbers are plummeting in the UK.

Too hot to garden and ground baked solid, so here's some photos instead from when the summer ran dry...

Waiting for Sunshine...

After such a hot early Bank Holiday, this May is all about trying to get on top of the weeds and seedlings. Planters now have onions, carrots, climbing french beans and strawberries. New fences are settling in, still some building work to be completed later in the summer. If last year was all about cutting back, clearing, repairing and reclaiming space and light in the garden; this year is the year of organising and planning...
