Jubilee weekend

Ah lovely rain. Just what we needed for the gardens. Asparagus, salad leaves and rocket for the plate; broad beans and the first carrots nearly ready.

Busy busy on the plot over the past few weeks; it's just about planted up now except of course it never is. I've sown carrots and more peas; the sprouts, broccoli, beans and tomatoes are in, likewise the sunflowers, dahlias, carnations and cosmos. The potatoes are earthed up, the daisies are flowering in the orchard, the elder trees are flowering in the hedgerow and all's well in my little realm.

I only hope the queen is feeling as chuffed. Nothing like a bit of rain on a parade.
