The Aquilegias

With all the rain recently, Crystal Palace has turned into the jungle. It's so green round here that if Orville finally learnt to fly you wouldn't see him for all the trees.

And in a brief respite from the rain and writing, I managed to get out at the weekend and photograph our aquilegias. They didn't flower last year, but here they are as lovely as anything.

What a month!!

Despite a rushed effort to bolster my broad beans last Thursday night, I'm sorry to say that my garden is looking in much the same state as my blog recently - a bit worse for wear. I've been so busy on the second draft of my book that I've just had no time to think of anything else.

And it's not just my garden that looks like a jungle - my bedroom window sill is threatening to turn my flat into the Amazon Rainforest. The seeds have all gone crazy. Everything needs repotting - particularly my tomatoes - but where's the time!

Thanks to everyone who's visited recently, and I promise I will get back into the blogging habit, but I've had to let it take a backseat for the moment. Come July though, most of the hard work should be done, and life will return to normal...
