but Summer has finally arrived and we're not all wearing fifteen layers of woolies and a balaclava .
Everyone has moved outside . Little side streets are full of people with a cup of tea , a good book and dozing cat
The hollyhocks are looking lovely
The local open air Flea Market has started again
My summer curtains are growing nicely and there are tiny tomatoes already !!
Some enormous wild flower has settled in outside my front door in the middle of the calendulas , lavender and snapdragons and is wildly popular with bees . There's a lovely buzzzzzz every time I come home .
The two black swans from the City Farm are lending a much needed touch of glamour to the trip to the supermarket again
And just in time . On Friday the summer holidays begin ...!!!
