Tuesday at Two (May 14th)

After a very cool spell, with lots of rain, the garden is looking lush and healthy. Two iris flowers have opened, but the big red peony buds still haven’t braved the cold nights and unfurled. Maybe it will warm up enough for them in the next few days…


The Ice Saints (days in the middle of May when we very often get a cold snap) are nearly over – the last one, Cold Sophie, is tomorrow night. I can sow my last seeds soon!
