The first ripe blackberry has appeared. Let’s hope that they are all ripened and picked by Michaelmas.
Another first for me; last year I planted a load of bulbs of freesias, lilies and alliums and now the first lily has flowered! I’m chalking that one up as a success.
Oh, and the hedgehogs say hi. They were very grateful for all of the shallow bowls of water dotted around the garden during the recent “summer heatwave” in the UK.
