A Bonus



Life is manic but it has it moments when all the effort is worthwhile. I drove to Cornwall on Wednesday - detoured to see dd which was worth it for the huge hug alone. Once in Cornwall I collected a desk for London (nabbed two neighbours to help me shift into the car) then drove back to London yesterday via DS1's school to collect him as he had completed all the exams he had scheduled before half term. Madness - I know.

However as a bank holiday weekend and half term are upon us we know the weather will go downhill and I saw my garden in its full May glory - such a bonus!

How lovely to get such a big hug from your son. Definitely worth a trip for. I'm looking forward to mine coming home in a few weeks.

The garden looks beautiful.

Pen said...

What a cool house. Love it! And your garden is lovely too, of course.

Nell - the scent was even more glorious than the appearance!

Debs- i live for hugs :-)

Pen - thanks- I love them both but if I'm honest then the house wins.

What a beautiful picture! I want to drive to London! Kinda hard when I live in Utah but one can always dream.

Your wisteria is amazing! Poppies are one of my favourite flowers but I have no success with getting them to come up every year, how do you do it?

Who needs sunshine when your garden's as gorgeous as that? I adore poppies - in fact, my house is called 'Poppy Cottage' and has yellow ones bursting out all over the place!

Liz, you are amazing what you achieve.

It was lovely that you caught the wisteria, which is so beautiful, but which has such a short life span.
