has been fairly miserable weather-wise being mostly chilly and overcast with some rain at times. The latter has been welcome though as it was the driest winter for twenty years and spring was no wetter. Although the ground is damp a few inches down the surface is starting to get dusty and cracks are already appearing.
The poached egg plants (limnanthes douglasii) will soon be showing as a carpet of white and yellow flowers buzzing with honey bees.
The rose ‘Pretty Lady’ is covered in flower buds and the first few flowers appeared right at the back end of last month, which is the earliest I’ve ever seen them.
Have a good weekend!
