Spring is earlier this year – I picked elderflowers. Last years post is below from 31 May 2023

I put the flame lily tubers in 20 days ago and they have sprouted and are 10cm high! I hope they will form a bright welcome to my porch! It is cold today – still got the N-E wind which brings the felt temperature down from 12C at present although 20C predicted later.Elderflowers might be ready for picking on the next hot sunny day!

It is cup final day – to reminisce it used to be such a BIG day. As a kid I would watch it from mid morning when the coaches arrived at Wembley. The first year I remember was the Blackburn Rovers vs Wolverhampton Wanders final of 1960 aged 6! The only one missed when younger was the ManU vs Leics final when my cousin got married (what a heathen!) my bro’ and me took it in turns to leave the church service to listen on the radio!

Prawns, pasta and homemade avocado mayo for lunch. All the plants have been watered in and out!
