May was a pretty dreadful month here in West Devon. There was a good week somewhere near the start, but it quickly faded and by the star of June we were still lighting fires in the evening.
Despite this (or maybe because of it) the growing through the garden seems to have been pretty robust, at least judging by the lawn which seemed to transform into a jungle every time you turned your back on it.
The weather the last few days has been much better and suddenly flowers are bursting into life all over. It feels like summer and that’s always a good thing.
