Relaxing in the garden
Its wonderful weather. Its a real treat to step out into the garden first thing in the morning. The air is still and cool, but you know its going to be a scorcher.
Its the weekend and two loads of washing are drying in the sun; the fridge is full and we've been to stock up on organic veg and food. So a guilt-free afternoon is in order - sitting on the patio under an umbrella, reading the papers and sipping Earl Grey - and admiring the first rose, the sweet peas, some petunias planted in the bottom of the old Tortoise stove that kept the school warm (when it was a Victorian school) and an oriental poppy.
