Tuesday View (3rd June)

Although it’s barely 20°C with the odd shower passing through, I still feel like summer has arrived…

The peonies are flowering beautifully, roses are about to bloom, and the lavender is opening. We can smell peonies, elderflowers, wild strawberries and lavender as we walk around the garden. If I zoom in you can see the lavender behind the red Centranthus…

I think it must be my favourite flower today…

I shall be making lavender ice cream and elderflower cordial this week, and then it will be time for jam making with the strawberry fields already open here… a busy month!

What’s on your agenda for early June?
