21 degrees Celsius. Well by Scottish standards this is a heatwave!
Before it got too hot for me, I had breakfast with a cheeky robin, while the swallows fed their four babies above my head.
Sniffed the first sweet pea to open - Matucana - small flower, big scent.
Bees buzz in the poppy Papaver ruprifragum.
So tempting, but there's work to be done first!
More buzzing in a cloud of catmint: Nepeta 'Six Hills Giant'.
And the first whiff of scent from the honeysuckle.
The fuchsia 'Hawkshead' in the background, about 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide..
started out as a small pot plant on the balcony of our previous house.
Simple pleasures to share, to savour and to celebrate.
Have a lovely day.
